BD Snowden-Pencer 3mm Laparoscopic Instruments

BD’s 3mm instruments enable surgeons to perform procedures known to provide patients with a virtually scar-less procedure, reduce post-operative pain, improve post-operative appearance and reduce hospital stays.1 The jaw lengths and openings of the devices are closely scaled to those of standard laparoscopic instruments, providing surgeons with a less invasive surgical approach without compromising instrument functionality. The modularity and reusability of the devices offer a cost-effective alternative to other micro-laparoscopic options.
