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

CLICKLINE Parenchymal Forceps

For easier circumnavigation of vessels and bronchi in the hilum of the lung

Both CLICKLINE parenchymal forceps are ideally suited for delicate anatomical segment resections and lobectomies in lung surgery as the geometry of the clamp is designed to allow safe dissection or circumnavigation of vessels or bronchi in the hilum of the lung. The double curved jaws and their position in relation to the sheath axis leads the instrument tip safely around the rear wall of vessels or bronchi when the sheath is rotated. These can then be sutured, ligated, clipped or closed using clip sutures and transected.

Special Features:

  • Slender jaws for dissection of vessels and bronchi
  • Double curved jaws allow circumnavigation of vessels
  • 2-part dismantling instruments fulfil the highest hygiene demands while offering the best possible variability

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

Basic Set for Rigid Bronchoscopy

Rigid bronchoscopy is often employed in interventions such as foreign body removal and the placement of stents as the large working channel allows work with a wide range of instruments. This is particularly essential for the management of complications such as, for example, massive hemorrhage.

For these indications, rigid bronchoscopy offers the following advantages:

  • Optimal vision
  • Large-scale biopsies
  • Good suction possibilities
  • Respiration possible

The specially designed telescope guide sheath, which is firmly locked onto the universal bronchoscope, simplifies camera-guided intubation and protects against rod lens breakage. This guarantees a constant view of the distal end of the bronchoscope.
