LiVac - Liver Retraction Device

Single-use Soft Silicone Device Which Allows to Create a Vaccum which Joins the Liver and Diaphragm

Unlike most other surgical retractors, LiVac does not require a dedicated surgical incision for insertion and placement.

The LiVac Retractor is inserted through a laparoscopic incision or port and placed between either lobe of the patient’s liver and diaphragm.

The suction tubing exits the patient’s abdomen alongside a laparoscopic port and is attached to standard suction tubing, connected to regulated wall suction.

The tubing is clamped until the retractor is in position, then released.

The suction creates a vacuum which joins the liver and diaphragm together, thereby retracting either the right or left lobes of liver.

The key benefits of the LiVac device

  • The suction of the LiVac Retractor causes the liver to cohere to the diaphragm during surgery, thereby allowing access to the organs below and minimising trauma to the liver.
  • The suction tubing exits alongside existing ports, hence no additional incisions are required.
  • Liver retraction is achieved in upper gastro intestinal surgeries without additional incisions and thereby minimising trauma to the patient.
  • While the device will find broad application in multi-port laparoscopic surgeries a major benefit is that it is also especially suited to single port laparoscopic surgeries
