Two new laparoscopic instruments: bipolar sterilizing forceps and uterine manipulator.

Abstract

Two new instruments have been found useful in laparoscopic surgery. One is a bipolar forceps used primarily for sterilization operations performed on the Fallopian tube with which discrete lesions can be made. The bipolar principle avoids electrical trauma at distant sites. The other, an intrauterine manipulator, permits better uterine positioning during the procedure without the need for an assistant. Tubal lavage can also be performed with this instrument.
