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. 

Key benefits of the Standard E-Sac:

  • One piece construction with integral tail
  • Deployment using 5mm instruments
  • No claw forceps required

The Standard E-Sac comes in four sizes.  Please refer to the table below to determine the correct size to suit your surgical needs:
