Thorax

Diagnosis and therapy in the thoracic region would be inconceivable without endoscopy today. Originally only used for diagnosing pleural disorders, the endoscope is now an integral component, even in major surgical procedures. Taking advantage of autofluorescence, bronchoscopy is useful for the early detection of lung tumors. Distending mediastinoscopes are used to perform extensive lymph node dissection with therapeutic intent.

The range of products available from KARL STORZ for thoracic endoscopy comprises endoscopes and instruments for endoscopic or endoscopically assisted thoracic surgery, medical thoracoscopy, mediastinoscopy as well as rigid and flexible bronchoscopy, including procedures performed with fluorescence imaging.

Highlights

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.

  • 3D system featuring video endoscopes with a diameter of 10 mm
  • Easy toggle between 3D and 2D
  • Easy integration into the IMAGE1 S 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

HEINE Optical 6 mm Set

For medical thoracoscopy

The HEINE 6 mm set allows minimally invasive medical thoracoscopy to be performed with a technique based on the 4 mm 30° HOPKINS® telescope. With these instruments, the proven concept of mounting various working elements on the HOPKINS® endoscope could be transferred from bronchoscopy to thoracoscopy.

Special Features:

  • Powder blower for application of talc powder under visualization
  • Suction tube for fluid aspiration under optical control; also acts as a protective sheath for the HOPKINS® telescope at the start of the procedure
  • Dissection electrode for the division of adhesions without requiring a second access
  • Forceps for precise cutting of biopsies under optical control
