Pediatrics

Children’s special anatomic and pathological characteristics require instruments that are appropriately adapted to them in every respect – because children are more than just little adults. In close collaboration with leading physicians worldwide, KARL STORZ has developed a special product range for this patient group, with products that are perfectly tailored to the needs of the youngest patients.

By doing so, KARL STORZ is setting new standards in pediatrics, involving the fields of neuroendoscopy, ENT, anesthesia and emergency medicine, thoracic surgery / bronchoscopy, gastroenterology, laparoscopy, urology, and proctology. For patients, smaller diameters mean less scar formation and less postoperative pain. For users, shorter instruments and greater stability ensure safety and ergonomics. As a result, both surgeons and patients benefit from our special pediatric portfolio.

Highlights

The New RoTalock™ Trocar

The TAN RoTalock™ trocar is a self-retaining trocar that was especially developed for neonatal surgery / pediatric laparoscopic surgery.

Special Features:

  • Distal tip of the cannula enables fixation directly under the abdominal wall and prevents the cannula from slipping out of the abdominal wall
  • Due to the short length of the sheath, the distal tip of the cannula does not hinder opening of the jaws
  • One-piece sealing system for single use (unsterile)
  • Available in sizes 3.5 mm and 6 mm

E.P.Si.T. – Endoscopic Pilonidal Sinus Treatment

The pilonidal sinus is an acute or chronic inflammatory process in the subcutaneous adipose tissue, often occurring in the sacrococcygeal region1. E.P.Si.T. – Endoscopic Pilonidal Sinus Treatment – proceeds in two phases. In the first – diagnostic – phase, the sinus cavity and the sinus tracts are examined. The aim of the second – therapeutic – phase is to ablate the abscess cavity and to eliminate the fistula2. Both phases are performed under direct endoscopic control.

Special Features:

  • E.P.Si.T. can be performed in an outpatient setting
  • Ablation of the abscess cavity and elimination of the fistula under direct vision
  • High patient satisfaction3
  • Straightforward, safe, effective and reproducible method of treatment3
  • Instruments can also be used to treat anal fistulas (VAAFT technique)

Bronchoscopy Instrumentation for Children

KARL STORZ offers bronchoscopy instruments that have been tailored to the anatomy of children. These include bronchoscopes in various sizes and lengths as well as optical forceps and accessories. The smallest bronchoscope allows interventions such as foreign body removal and biopsies to be performed on newborns and small children under optical control.

Special features of the bronchoscopy instrumentation:

  • Special surface treatment for optimal gliding properties of the bronchoscope sheath
  • Atraumatic bronchoscope tip for patient-friendly insertion
  • Wide range of diverse forceps for foreign body removal and biopsy

The telescope bridge, which is firmly locked onto the rigid bronchoscope, simplifies camera-guided intubation and protects against rod lens breakage. This guarantees a constant view of the distal end of the bronchoscope.

The optical forceps feature a new patented sheath design that simplifies handling during cleaning. The modified handle with force limitation minimizes the risk of jaw breakage.
