There are two types of suction-irrigation devices: conventional and multifunctional systems. Conventional systems are used for releasing or removing fluids, but newer versions include electrocautery functions where the surgeon can control the fluid during laparoscopic procedures as well as cauterize tissues. This enables surgeons to perform multiple functions with a single device.

This market is broken down into segments for disposable kits, reusable tips and suction-irrigation pumps. Disposable kits can only be used once per procedure. The disposable kit segment is further sub-segmented into standard battery-powered kits, newer hybrid kits and capital equipment. The reusable tip segment is further sub-segmented into standard reusable tips, which offer the usual suction-irrigation function, as well as newer electrocautery reusable tips that add functions such as cauterization to suction-irrigation systems.

Abstract
Suction-irrigation systems are used for releasing or removing fluids or other material during laparoscopic procedures. The system includes a valve or handle, tubing, a pump and various tips depending on its function during surgery. The attachments can be used for cutting, cauterizing, dissecting, retrieving specimens, excise loops or even smoke evacuation.

Suction-irrigation devices manage fluids through valve manipulation. They are computer-driven devices that maintain a clear operative field and reduce the risk of surgical fluid overload. Excessive fluid absorption or overflow are an extreme risk for the patient, and thus suction-irrigation devices are essential for procedures where this may occur, such as cholecystectomies or gallbladder removal.
