Port-site closure using a modified aptos needle.
JSLS 2013 Apr-Jun; 17(2):312-5JSLS

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES

Trocar-site incisional hernias are the most common complications in laparoscopic surgery. Fascial closure of port sites represents a challenging issue in laparoscopic surgery.

METHODS

We describe a simple easy technique for fascial closure of port sites using a double-tip needle (Lasheen needle). This study included 100 patients who underwent laparoscopic surgery from January 2009 through August 2011 in the General Surgery Department, Zagazig University Hospital, Zagazig, Egypt. The mean follow-up period was 2 years for any wound complications at these trocar sites.

RESULTS

The mean age of the patients was 39.5 years, and the mean time for placement of one suture was 2 minutes. No trocar-site herniation occurred with our technique during the period of follow-up. Infection developed at the trocar site in 3 patients.

CONCLUSION

This technique is easy, simple, safe, fast, inexpensive, and effective for fascial closure of trocar sites.
