3-4mm trocars are used in minimally invasive surgery for infants and children. Because their abdominal walls are thinner, the trocars have a tendency to dislodge frequently during surgery. This ultimately leads to increased intraoperative time and minor injuries. We have designed a trocar that will decrease the chances of slipping out of the abdominal wall during surgery.
