This is what Covidien has to say about Visiport Plus Optical Trocars:
The Visiport ™ Plus optical trocar is available in 5 mm-11 mm or 5 mm-12 mm diameter with a Versaport ™ Plus radiolucent sleeve. The Visiport ™ Plus optical trocar consists of an obturator with a blunt clear dome at the distal end which encloses a crescent shaped knife blade.
When the trigger is squeezed, the blade extends approximately 1mm and immediately retracts. This action permits a controlled, sharp dissection of the tissue layers. The pistol grip handle includes a trigger and, at the proximal end, an opening accommodates a 10mm laparoscope. The 10 mm 0 ° laparoscope permits visualization as the obturator passes through the abdominal or thoracic body wall.
The Versaport ™ Plus radiolucent trocar sleeve contains an internal seal to prevent gas leakage when instruments are inserted or withdrawn. A Versaport ™ Plus self-adjusting seal, accommodating instruments ranging from 5 mm to 11 mm or 5 mm to 12 mm is designed to effectively reduce the size of the trocar�s seal to allow insertion of smaller sized instruments without loss of pneumoperitoneum. There is a 3-way stopcock for gas insufflation and rapid gas desufflation.
