HOPKINS® TMJ Arthroscopes and Instruments
The HOPKINS® arthroscopes for TMJ arthroscopy are available in the diameters 1.9 mm and 2.4 mm. Furthermore, 0° or 30° directions of view can be used as desired. The rod lens technology of HOPKINS® arthroscopes ensures particularly high image quality and hence the best possible view. This is particularly helpful in complex arthroscopic microsurgery since the technique requires detailed viewing of internal joint structures. Again, custom-fit obturators allow insertion of the arthroscopy sheaths into the joint space as atraumatically as possible. Additional trocars are positioned to allow insertion of instruments into the joint. A series of instruments, such as grasping forceps, scissors, palpation hooks, sickle knives, and probes, can be used in the joint via trocars. HOPKINS® telescopes are autoclavable and can be stored, cleaned, and sterilized in purpose-designed trays.
The ALL-IN-ONE Temporomandibular Arthroscope
The ALL-IN-ONE TMJ Arthroscope has an outer diameter of 2.2 mm and an integrated 1.4 mm working channel. It combines a telescope, irrigation channel, and working channel and thereby allows arthroscopic lavage as well as arthroscopic microsurgery. Again, the arthroscope sheath is first inserted in the temporomandibular joint and then connected with the ALL-IN-ONE TMJ Arthroscope via the existing LUER lock connector. The arthroscope sheath features a scale that enables surgeons to track the insertion depth of the employed instruments. The palpation hook, scissors, and biopsy forceps can be directly inserted into the joint through the endoscope’s integrated working channel. The custom-fit tray ensures optimal endoscope storage and reprocessing.
All required components, including the endoscope, are autoclavable.
IMAGE1 S™ – As Individual as Your Requirements
The IMAGE1 S™ camera platform offers surgeons a single system for all applications. As a modular camera platform, IMAGE1 S™ combines various technologies (e.g., rigid, flexible and 3D endoscopy) in one system and can therefore be adapted to individual customer needs. Furthermore, near infrared (NIR/ICG) for fluorescence imaging, the integration of operating microscopes and the use of VITOM® 3D is possible via the camera platform.
- Individual modules can be selected according to user requirements, e.g., for rigid and flexible endoscopes as well as 3D technology
- Three innovative visualization technologies for easy tissue differentiation, e.g., in the field of temporomandibular joint arthroscopy:
- CLARA: Homogeneous illumination
- CHROMA: Contrast enhancement
- SPECTRA*: Color shift and exchange
- Automatic light source control
- Natural color rendition
