SCANLAN®
VATS Thoracoscopic Instruments

bg_uniportSince 1921, Scanlan International has been dedicated to working closely with surgeons to provide the highest quality, innovative surgical instruments.

The specialty of thoracic surgery continues to evolve from a conventional open approach to a thoracoscopic approach.   This evolution to video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) surgery has been the catalyst for a new generation of specialty surgical instrumentation.

Scanlan pioneered and continues to be the leader with innovative VATS instrumentation.   Scanlan® minimally invasive instruments offer a unique dual pivot point design that enables the instrument to be fully functional when placed through a port or very small thoracic incision while still providing the familiarity of traditional style handles for a comfortable feel and superior tactile response.



The Scanlan Group is a unique combination of enterprising businesses dedicated to providing the highest quality products and services to the medical community. Designed to work independently and confidentially, each company is built on a wealth of knowledge gained from working with leading medical professionals since 1921.
