Description

The E-Sac tissue removal system was pioneered by laparoscopic surgeon Harry Espiner in 1990 when he encountered the problem of how to retrieve tissue safely in the new procedure for gallbladder removal.

Deciding that the simplest solution was to create a bag to remove the organ, he set about designing one and identified Jim Howard at Cameron Balloons - the world's largest manufacturer of hot air balloons - as his partner.  With his expert knowledge of lightweight fabrics normally used in balloon flight but now applied to the operating theatre, Jim Howard set about creating prototypes out of ripstop nylon and utilised a special formulation of polyurethane coating to ensure the material was fully leak-resistant. 

The 'NEW' ECO SAC is a cost effective tissue removal system designed to be deployed through a port-site cannula.  External tabs on the mouth and bottom of the sac facilitate loading and opening of the mouth using 5mm forceps.  Using mouth-first abdominal entry simplifies sac placement.  Once in place the sac opens automatically to facilitate tissue capture and its drawstring ensures full closure for secure removal - no claw forceps are required for extraction.

The ECO-SAC is available in five sizes:
