  STEP* - the NEXT GENERATION in laparoscopic access 

STEP* system provides new generation in accessing the abdominal cavity - safer and easier.  It almost eliminates the risk of trocar inguries during the first blind insertion.  

Is there any problem in the trocar first insertion ?   Results of the different studies (within the years 1993-1997, 477.000 procedures) indicate: 

Trocars can cause serious, sometimes fatal complications!

Standard of care: are these injuries preventable?  Yes -   New Acsess Technology STEP*

STEP* - is not a trocar:

Dilation forces are controlled between the surgeons two hands.  Minimal tenting of abdominal wall.  

Evidence-Based Clinical Outcomes: General Surgery Subset.  Westphal DR et al. Presented at: SAGES 2000.   Results of usage at 1593 Patients, 5326 Step* devices.  7 Surgeons, 7 Hospitals, 5 Years
