Design and implementation of endoscopic technologies into wide practice have become a new stage in the surgery development. However, employment оf the minimally invasive methods in experiments on animals are limited by high cost of endoscopic and in particular laparascopic equipment. We have designed the prototype of endoscopic device consisting of the basic modules. The paper describes in details the stages of design of working modules of insufflation, aspiration/irrigation, visualization, lightening. The designed prototype enables to perform the minimally invasive endoscopic surgeries on experimental animals with minimal traumatizing, shortening the duration of surgery and the terms of animals’ rehabilitation.

Keywords: minimally invasive surgery; endoscopic device; experimental animals
