What Is an Obturator Trocar?

An obturator trocar is a specific kind of trocar with a sharp or blunt blade at the end, which aids with insertion and placement. Like other trocars, obturator trocars consist of an awl, a cannula, and a seal at the top, and they have a wide range of uses.

When we talk about obturator trocars, it's important to note that the obturator is actually the technical name for the part of the trocar which penetrates the bodily tissue and allows the trocar to enter the abdomen. Obturator trocars can come in different shapes and forms, but they always have this specific feature for easy insertion.

Just like other sorts of trocars, obturator trocars are used for a wide range of medical processes. They can be used both for diagnosing problems with patients and assisting in the treatment of those problems, too, and they are most commonly used in the abdomen area.

How Does an Obturator Trocar Work?

An obturator trocar works in a very simple way. First, the doctor or surgeon will need to identify a site to insert the obturator trocar. This will usually be somewhere in the center of the abdomen. Next, anesthesia and sedatives may be given to the patient to help them relax before the procedure begins, and various medical tools will be used to carefully make a small incision in the abdomen, opening up a space for the obturator trocar to be inserted. The trocar can then be pushed into position, using the obturator tip or blade to cut through the tissue. Once it’s in position, the obturator trocar may be used for other purposes, like guiding cameras into the body.

Obturator Trocar Sizes 

As with other kinds of trocars, it's possible to find a wide range of sizes of obturator trocars. Some of the most common diameters for obturator trocars range from 5mm in diameter up to 10mm or higher. They may also vary in terms of length.

Obturator Trocar Types

It's possible to divide obturator trocars into a couple of different types, like bladed and bladeless or blunt. Bladed obturator trocars have sharpened blades at the base to cut through tissue as the trocar enters, while blunt or bladeless obturator trocars have softer, rounded tips which are less likely to cause any injury to the patient.

Obturator Trocar Uses

There are many ways in which obturator trocars can be used. They’re commonly used for endoscopy procedures, which are carried out in order to detect and diagnose issues inside the body, such as problems with the gastrointestinal system or respiratory system.

Ethicon, Covidien, Medline, and Medtronic are some of the top suppliers of obturator trocars.
