The New Trocar Generation from KARL STORZ

The new trocar generation combines single-use and reusable components. In line with the KARL STORZ company philosophy, the cannulas and trocars were designed with reusable components in mind. The valve seal is intended for single use.

Special Features:

  • Ergonomic shape of the trocar ensures safe and comfortable handling during placement of the trocar
  • One-piece sealing system for single use (package of 10)
  • Minimal friction between the valve seal and the instrument
  • Considerably reduced weight and good balance thanks to the newly designed plastic trocar housing
  • Color coding for clear identification of different sizes
  • Available in the sizes 2.5 mm – 13.5 mm

SupraLoop – Bipolar Loop Now Available

For laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy

In addition to the well-known SUPRALOOP unipolar loop, we now offer a bipolar SUPRALOOP for the removal of the uterus in supracervical hysterectomy.

Special features:

  • No neutral electrode necessary for the bipolar SUPRALOOP
  • Loop available in two sizes
  • Reduced operating time thanks to quick removal of the uterus
  • Additional cost savings thanks to reusable handle and outer sheath

KECKSTEIN Uterine Manipulator

Extraordinarily versatile

The versatile KECKSTEIN uterine manipulator makes gynecological surgery in the lower pelvis easier and safer. Presentation of the operative field during hysterectomy as well as organ-preserving surgery, e.g. in the case of endometriosis, is greatly enhanced in comparison to conventional manipulators thanks to the possibility of anteflexion and retroflexion of the distal tip and cap. Various configurable atraumatic inserts for interventions in reproductive medicine or oncology offer the operating surgeon completely new surgical possibilities.

Special Features:

  • New reusable seal for Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy
  • Anteflexion and retroflexion of the distal tip and the cap
  • Atraumatic inserts for organ-preserving interventions and surgical oncology

Imaging in the Gynecological Outpatient Clinic or Practice

A basic concept with many expansion options

The broad product portfolio from KARL STORZ offers the possibility to develop a customized concept for hysteroscopy in the outpatient clinic or office setting. Depending on the type of procedure planned, i.e. pure diagnostic or surgical interventions, more equipment can be added to suit individual preferences.

The TELE PACK X LED from KARL STORZ provides a compact solution for imaging and documentation. It combines a monitor, light source, camera control unit and data management in one unit. Its easy portability makes the TELE PACK X LED ideal for use in private practices or clinical outpatient departments. Thanks to the new network function, it is now possible to feed patient images and videos into the hospital or practice network.

More recent options for an individual configuration of the hysteroscopy tower from KARL STORZ are presented below. This can be used in the case of infertility or for bleeding disorders during hysteroscopy, while it is also possible to add further components for the purposes of medical consultations, e.g., on dysplasia or urogynecology.

Rapid Tissue Ablation with a Small Diameter! IBS® for Mechanical Resection in the Office Setting

Intrauterine BIGATTI Shaver (IBS®) with HYSTEROMAT E.A.S.I.®

With an optical system that features an outer diameter of only 6 mm, the Intrauterine BIGATTI Shaver (IBS®) is inserted into the minimally dilated cervix. Thanks to the 4 mm shaver blade, the immediate removal of intrauterine pathologies is now possible outside the OR, e.g., in office settings and clinical outpatient departments or IVF centers.

  • Mechanical removal of intrauterine pathologies such as polyps, myomas or placental remnants
  • Clear visualization at all times thanks to direct suction of the resected tissue via the HYSTEROMAT E.A.S.I.®
  • Fully reusable system
  • Fast learning curve – not using HF current lowers the risk of complications
  • HYSTEROMAT E.A.S.I.® can be used for all hysteroscopic interventions

Creating Certainty: Diagnostics and Treatment Outside the OR

Solutions for office hysteroscopy

Office hysteroscopy allows the diagnosis of any abnormalities in the uterine cavity while 5 Fr. instruments make immediate treatment possible. Narrow-lumen hysteroscopes enable procedures to be performed outside the OR without anesthesia or dilation of the cervix. Furthermore, hysteroscopy can be used to rule out any possible obstacles to implantation prior to IVF treatment.

  • Outsourcing diagnostic services and minor hysteroscopic procedures expands the capacity of the OR
  • CAMPO TROPHYSCOPE® with a diameter of only 2.9 mm allows a primary approach to the uterine cavity under visualization
  • HYSTEROMAT E.A.S.I.® automatically maintains a stable uterine cavity
  • Compact and mobile TELE PACK X LED imaging unit for universal use with integrated documentation


Extracorporeal visualization, magnification, and documentation

The VITOM® telescope is an optical system which – unlike an endoscope – is not inserted into the body but placed at a working distance of 25-75 cm above the surgical field. The VITOM® system can be used for the visualization and documentation of colposcopic interventions. Furthermore, the VITOM® system magnifies the surgical site and provides an excellent view of the epithelial border, e.g., during loop excision.

Special Features:

  • Magnified imaging in colposcopy and conization
  • VITOM® system with integrated green filter
  • Ideal for training purposes and the documentation or transmission of interventions
  • When used with an endoscopic FULL HD video system (e.g., IMAGE1 S), the VITOM® system delivers images in high resolution


KARL STORZ Near Infrared (NIR/ICG) System in Gynecological Laparoscopy

The near-infrared (NIR/ICG) system from KARL STORZ provides visualization beyond the tissue surface. Near-infrared (NIR) technology makes it possible to visualize the distribution of the fluorescent contrast agent indocyanine green (ICG). In gynecological laparoscopy, this technique is used for the identification of sentinel lymph nodes and for lymph mapping in gynecological oncology interventions. The NIR/ICG system from KARL STORZ enables visualization of ICG through the lymph vessels and lymphatic system network. ICG-compatible telescopes are available to the operating surgeon for both laparoscopy and open surgery (VITOM®).

  • Fluorescence mode with background illumination
  • Quick switchover via footswitch between white light and ICG modes
  • Enhanced fluorescence imaging with IMAGE1 S SPECTRA A for weak fluorescing areas
  • Telescopes for endoscopic and open surgical interventions
  • Modular expandability of the IMAGE1 S system to 3D, flexible and open
