Smoke evacuator for laparoscopy.

LapEvac[TM] is a newly patented solution for laparoscopic surgery that helps reduce many of the risks associated with poor vision and loss of distension due to smoke and efforts to clear smoke from the patient's cavity. LapEvac is a disposable, battery powered smoke evacuator that creates a closed loop to filter and re-circulate gas into the peritoneal cavity. The small, sterile unit hooks up to two trocars and quietly runs throughout the surgical procedure. LapEvac keeps the surgeon's view clear of smoke, minimizes the amount of C[O.sub.2] gas needed to keep the patient's cavity distended, and also helps to reduce the amount of plume byproducts absorbed into patient's system.
