Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maintenance of a clear visual field during surgery [ Time Frame: 3m ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: April 2012
Study Completion Date: August 2012
Primary Completion Date: August 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Smoke clearance
Smoke clearance device active
Device: Innervision Surgical Smoke Removal System
Smoke removal by electrostatic precipitation

Detailed Description:

The study will examine the safety and performance of a new surgical smoke clearance system which has been developed to maintain a visually clear operative field during laparoscopic surgery by using electrostatic precipitation to clear, from the surgical field, smoke and plume produced by energy based surgical instruments e.g. electrocautery, laser tissue ablation and ultrasonic scalpel tissue dissection.
