- Tekcapital said that Belluscura Ltd has launched Passport medical devise in the US.

Passport is a disposable trocar used in laparoscopic, or 'keyhole' surgery, and featured SmartTip technology, designed to be compatible with the Da Vinci 1 S and Si robotic surgical systems.

It was estimated that more than 7.5m laparoscopic procedures were performed annually, with 2.8m being performed in the US alone.

Laparoscopic procedures continued to replace more invasive surgery because of the faster recovery, lower surgical headcount requirement and better training.
