The device is the first of its kind in the medical literature and patent is filed for it at Mumbai office. The authors have been using this camera for short procedures especially while doing Single Incision Surgeries and Gas Insufflation Less Surgeries .
The special advantage is that it is ideal for use with Single Incision Gas Insufflation Less Laparoscopic Surgeries. It is possible to bend the telescope to the required position and the camera does not interfere with the working of the other hand instruments.
This device is a three in one that replaces the telescope, the LED light source and the Endoscopic camera all of which are very expensive ($10,000). It is commercialized at a negligible cost of Rs.20,000.
