Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine

Joints connect bones to each other and provide the body with agility and stability. Obesity, misalignment, physical inactivity as well as sports injuries can lead to joint problems and restricted movement.

Many minimally invasive techniques can now be performed in joint surgery thanks to modern arthroscopy. The product range from KARL STORZ covers endoscopic instrument sets and implants for treatment of the shoulder, elbow, hip and knee joints as well as the wrist, interphalangeal and ankle joints.

In cooperation with renowned physicians, KARL STORZ was able to develop innovative products and techniques for, among others, meniscal refixation, cruciate ligament reconstruction, reconstruction of shoulder instability as well as hip arthroscopy.

Furthermore, KARL STORZ offers an appropriate portfolio of implants for arthroscopic reconstructive procedures. This segment includes both titanium and bioresorbable implants such as interference screws, suture anchors and fixation buttons.

Highlights

SHOULDER PRO® suture forceps

Effective Suture Management in Shoulder Arthroscopy

The new suture forceps expands the familiar SHOULDER PRO® line to offer the surgeon a wide range of instruments for successful and targeted soft tissue perforation. This results in optimized suture management in reconstructive surgery for the rotator cuff and shoulder instability.

TARPUN SHOULDER PRO® suture forceps

  • Easy and atraumatic penetration of soft tissue with the sharp and extremely slender upward-opening jaws
  • Simplified suture grasping thanks to hook integrated in the jaw

FETCHER SHOULDER PRO® suture forceps

  • Efficient grasping of the suture anchor, without twisting the suture forceps, thanks to downward-opening jaws and large aperture angle
  • Best possible and atraumatic tissue handling thanks to the extremely slender design of the curved jaw with an upward pointing instrument tip
  • Available with straight jaws as well as jaws curved to the left and right

SilGrasp® PRO Suture Graspers

Effective Suture Management in Shoulder Arthroscopy

The new suture graspers expand the product portfolio for shoulder arthroscopy to enable successful suture ­management in reconstructive surgery for the rotator cuff and shoulder instability.

SILGRASP® PRO suture graspers

  • Enables the grasping of suture material and soft tissue thanks to the slender, serrated and atraumatic jaws
  • Reliable suture transportation thanks to special jaw design that prevents the suture from slipping out, even under strong traction
  • Also suitable for knee arthroscopy

SILGRASP® PRO curved suture graspers

  • Easier to grasp sutures that run parallel to the instrument thanks to jaws curved to the left or right
  • Simplified suture grasping due to jaws with large aperture angle

Even More Precise Hip Arthroscopy

Perfect results thanks to new aimer and optimized instruments

As a pioneer in hip arthroscopy, we deliver the first aimer offering horizontal triangulation. In addition to standard vertical triangulation, this allows faster and more precise portal placement.

KARL STORZ also provides sharper knives for the capsule and labrum that save costs thanks to their reusability. These knives allow a minimally invasive incision of the joint capsule in the portal zone and are able to detach the acetabular labrum at the bony rim from the periphery to the center.

The new KARL STORZ suture forceps for hip arthroscopy features an even more stable tip and is designed for atraumatic work. An optimized suture grasper allows safe grasping of the suture thanks to the instrument geometry. The extra long foreign body forceps (a working length of 22 cm) makes it easier to access all areas. And the extra stable microfracture chisel with 90° curve adds the final touch to your instrument set.

Reach a greater level of surgical precision – with KARL STORZ instruments.
