Spine Surgery

The incidence of spinal disorders has undergone a drastic increase in recent years and not only in industrial countries. "Back pain" has reached epidemic proportions and is causing major economic loss worldwide. Should surgery be necessary, access and operation sites must be kept as small as possible as the vertebral column constitutes a complex system. To function correctly, the spine relies on the balanced interplay of individual structures. Minimally invasive operative techniques with corresponding visualization ideally fulfill these requirements and optimally combine low traumatization with therapeutic efficiency.

KARL STORZ has, therefore, developed a wide range of products for spine surgery.

The product range comprises of dedicated, access-optimized telescopes and instruments for fully endoscopic procedures such as percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy, percutaneous endoscopic cervical discectomy and thoracoscopy. Furthermore, KARL STORZ offers instrument sets for endoscopically assisted, microsurgical and open procedures in spinal surgery. A high-speed motor system with a wide range of drill handpieces complements the portfolio.

Highlights

3D Endoscopy for Thoracic Spine Surgery

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.

Special Features:

  • 3D system featuring video endoscopes with diameters of 10 mm and 4 mm as well as VITOM® 3D
  • Easy switchover from 3D to 2D
  • Compatible with the IMAGE1 S camera platform
  • Three innovative visualization technologies for easy tissue differentiation in 2D and 3D:
    – CLARA: Homogeneous illumination
    – CHROMA: Contrast enhancement
    – SPECTRA*: Spectral color shift and switch
  • Instruments specially developed for thoracic interventions featuring a unique design and ergonomic handles
