Multi-Channel Access For Transanal Laparoendoscopy

UNI-VEC® is a single-use, sterile, transanal multi-channel access device that allows maintenance of the pneumorectum and the introduction of flexible and surgical endoscopic instrumentation to facilitate resection of rectal lesions.

Features

The innovative pneumatic system of the device is designed for both flexible endoscope and rigid optics.

The secondary working channels allow the introduction of 5 mm and 11-12 mm cannulas for laparoscopic instrumentation. This assembly makes it possible to combine flexible therapeutic endoscopy and minimally invasive surgery instrumentation.

The top lid can be opened and closed during the procedure, allowing sample extraction through the working channel without the need to remove the entire device.

Benefits

Use of flexible endoscope

Use of standard instruments

Freedom of movement

Facilitates sample extraction

Applications

UNI-VEC® is especially indicated but not limited to its use in:

Endoscopic resection of rectal polyps

Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR)

Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection (ESD)

Endoscopic Full-Thickness Resection (EFTR)

TransAnal Minimally Invasive Surgery (TAMIS)

TransAnal Total Mesorectal Excision (TATME)

Clinical Outcomes

The published study “Multicenter clinical trial for the resection of rectal polyps using a new laparoendoscopic hybrid transanal access device” demostrated the efficacy and safety of UNI-VEC® for the treatment of rectal lesions. Proving it to be a device that facilitates the implementation of hybrid procedures that seek to solve the limitations of pure endoscopic techniques by allowing the concomitant use of conventional laparoscopic and robotic instrumentation with the flexible endoscope¹.
