SURGICAL TROCAR HISTORY
Intercalarily, with the understanding of anatomy developed in the Renaissance period, many medical devices were invented. On the other hand this shows that the importance of medical-based devices is understood and more studies have been initiated to improve them. The emerging different types of diseases have increased the need for medical devices such as trocars. Although the use of trocars is thought to date back thousands of years, they emerged in the early 19th century and as a result of years of research on trocars, Reginald Southey invented the Southey tube. Thus, trocars have become usable medical devices.
Although it is not known exactly when trocars first appeared, they are medical devices that have continued their existence by progressing and developing thousands of years ago and have been medically used not only by doctors but also by veterinarians, for instance, in cases of bloating in cattle, a large diameter trocar is used to release trapped gas.
Surgical trocars, which existed in human life in different ways thousands of years ago, continue their existence as a single patient use tool to perform laparoscopic surgery in modern times.
