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

EndoCAMeleon® HOPKINS® Telescope

Adjustable in Every Aspect

The variable direction of view 0° – 120° allows adjustment of the viewing direction to any OR situation. This allows ideal display of the OR site during video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery.

Special Features:

  • HOPKINS® telescope with rod lens system and a rigid 10 mm sheath
  • The variable direction of view helps prevent “levering” in the intercostal space
  • Optical control during trocar placement
  • Visual inspection during placement of stapler jaws

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

* not for sale in the U.S.

RoBi® – Curved Bipolar Instruments for minimally invasive thoracic surgery

Thoracic surgery requires particularly gentle coagulation techniques, especially in patients with pacemakers. Particularly in video-assisted thoracic surgery, distally curved, rotating instruments (ROBI®) are needed in addition to straight models due to the local anatomy.

Special Features:

  • Bipolar techniques allow atraumatic procedures
  • A sheath specially curved for thoracoscopy
  • Easy dismantling allows simple and reliable reprocessing
  • Economical thanks to modular design
