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 MASTER E-SAC has three components: A valved cannula, a delivery rod, and the sac with its drawstring. The delivery rod supports two nitinol sprung arms which fit in a sleeve on the mouth of the sac and cause it to open automatically when deployed. The valved cannula houses the sac and the delivery rod prior to deployment via the port site, and will accept a 5mm forceps after the delivery rod has been removed following tissue capture. It comes in a wide range of sizes that cover most needs of excisional laproscopic surgery:
