Telescopes for Heart Surgery
In video-assisted mitral valve surgery, 30° telescopes with a diameter of 5 or 10 mm are in standard use. The mitral valve and the surrounding tissue are visualized by means of an access through the right intercostal space and the right atrium.
For endoscopic atrial ablation, most surgeons use 0° telescopes with a diameter of 5 or 10 mm to visualize the surgical field. This allows accurate positioning of the ablation device.
KARL STORZ additionally offers the ENDOCAMELEON® with a variable direction of view of 0° to 90°. It allows adjusting the direction of view to fit any surgical situation. The rigid HOPKINS® telescope is particularly well suited for use in anatomically narrow spaces, such as in minimally invasive mitral valve surgery and atrial ablation.
4K Monitor Portfolio
In conjunction with the IMAGE1 S™ 4U camera system, new 4K monitors now complement the imaging chain from KARL STORZ. The monitors are available in various sizes and technologies (2D/3D) in order to meet the individual requirements of different interventions.
4K technology offers an extended color space combined with enhanced color saturation due to the implementation of the BT.2020 standard in the monitors.
Thanks to the special tempered safety glass, all monitors feature strong resistance to scratches and knocks.
With a screen diagonal of 32", the monitors feature an enclosed glass surface that allows quick and easy wipe disinfection to guarantee optimal hygiene properties.
IMAGE1 S™ 3D – A Dimension Ahead
The IMAGE1 S™ 3D camera platform provides surgeons with excellent depth perception. Furthermore, the 3D stereoscopic imaging system is particularly valuable for activities that demand a high degree of spatial perception. Thanks to the modular system design, existing 2D systems can be upgraded to 3D.
