Disposable Laparoscopic Morcellator

Disposable Laparoscopic Morcellator

A disposable laparoscopic morcellator is a specialized surgical instrument used in minimally invasive procedures, particularly in gynecology and general surgery. This device is designed to fragment large tissue masses (such as fibroids or uterine tissue) into smaller pieces that can be easily removed through small laparoscopic incisions. The disposable nature of the morcellator ensures sterility and eliminates the need for cleaning and sterilization between uses, reducing the risk of cross-contamination and simplifying the workflow in the operating room.

Available as

15mm introducer, 1800ml bag
15mm introducer, 2100ml bag
15mm introducer, 2400ml bag
15mm introducer, 2600ml bag

Components and Design

  1. Cutting Blade/Rotary Blade: The main component used to cut and fragment tissue into smaller pieces.
  2. Handle: Ergonomically designed for secure grip and control during the procedure.
  3. Cannula/Trocar: A tube through which the morcellator is inserted into the abdominal cavity.
  4. Motorized Unit: Provides power to the cutting blade, ensuring efficient tissue fragmentation.
  5. Safety Shield: A protective barrier to prevent accidental injury to surrounding tissues.
  6. Sterile Packaging: Ensures the device remains sterile until use.


  • Myomectomy: Removing fibroids from the uterus while preserving the uterus itself.
  • Hysterectomy: Removing the uterus in pieces through small incisions.
  • Splenectomy: Fragmenting the spleen for removal in cases where the spleen cannot be removed intact.
  • Other Large Tissue Mass Removal: Any procedure requiring the removal of large tissue masses through minimally invasive techniques.


  1. Sterility: Single-use design ensures each device is sterile, minimizing the risk of infection.
  2. Convenience: Ready-to-use devices eliminate the need for cleaning and sterilization, saving time and resources.
  3. Safety: Reduces the risk of cross-contamination between patients.
  4. Efficiency: Provides consistent performance and ease of operation, allowing for faster and more efficient tissue removal.
  5. Cost-Effectiveness: Decreases costs associated with reprocessing and potential instrument damage.


  1. Preparation: The surgical area is prepared, and the patient is positioned appropriately. The appropriate morcellator is selected.
  2. Insertion: A trocar or cannula is inserted into the abdominal cavity through a small incision, and the morcellator is introduced through this port.
  3. Fragmentation: The morcellator’s cutting blade is activated, and large tissue masses are fragmented into smaller pieces.
  4. Extraction: The fragmented tissue pieces are removed from the abdominal cavity using laparoscopic instruments.
  5. Completion: After all tissue has been removed, the morcellator is withdrawn from the body.
  6. Disposal: The used morcellator is disposed of according to hospital protocols for biohazardous waste.

Examples of Procedures Using Disposable Laparoscopic Morcellators

  • Laparoscopic Myomectomy: Removing uterine fibroids in a minimally invasive manner.
  • Laparoscopic Hysterectomy: Performing a hysterectomy through small incisions by fragmenting the uterus.
  • Laparoscopic Splenectomy: Removing the spleen in cases where it is too large to be removed intact.
  • Laparoscopic Nephrectomy: Removing large kidney tumors or the entire kidney.

Clinical Considerations

  1. Device Selection: Choosing the appropriate morcellator based on the type and size of tissue to be removed.
  2. Safety Precautions: Implementing safety measures to minimize the risk of tissue dissemination and injury to surrounding structures.
  3. Sterility and Disposal: Maintaining sterility before use and following proper disposal protocols post-procedure.
  4. Training and Proficiency: Ensuring that surgeons and operating room staff are adequately trained in the use of morcellators.
  5. Monitoring: Continuously monitoring the procedure to ensure complete removal of tissue and to address any complications promptly.

Maintenance and Care

Since these devices are disposable, they do not require maintenance and care beyond ensuring proper storage before use and adherence to disposal protocols after use. This further enhances their convenience and reduces the workload on healthcare staff.

Disposal Protocols

  • Biohazard Waste: Dispose of used morcellators in biohazard waste containers to prevent contamination and adhere to safety protocols.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Follow hospital and local regulations for the disposal of medical waste.


Disposable laparoscopic morcellators are vital tools in minimally invasive surgery, offering significant benefits in terms of sterility, convenience, safety, and efficiency. By facilitating the removal of large tissue masses through small incisions, these devices contribute to improved patient outcomes and streamlined surgical workflows. Their single-use nature ensures that each procedure is performed with a sterile and reliable device, enhancing both patient safety and clinical efficiency.
