HOPKINS® TMJ Arthroscopes and Instruments
The HOPKINS® arthroscopes for TMJ arthroscopy are available in the diameters 1.9 mm and 2.4 mm. Furthermore, 0° or 30° directions of view can be used as desired. The rod lens technology of HOPKINS® arthroscopes ensures particularly high image quality and hence the best possible view. This is particularly helpful in complex arthroscopic microsurgery since the technique requires detailed viewing of internal joint structures. Again, custom-fit obturators allow insertion of the arthroscopy sheaths into the joint space as atraumatically as possible. Additional trocars are positioned to allow insertion of instruments into the joint. A series of instruments, such as grasping forceps, scissors, palpation hooks, sickle knives, and probes, can be used in the joint via trocars. HOPKINS® telescopes are autoclavable and can be stored, cleaned, and sterilized in purpose-designed trays.
The ALL-IN-ONE Temporomandibular Arthroscope
The ALL-IN-ONE TMJ Arthroscope has an outer diameter of 2.2 mm and an integrated 1.4 mm working channel. It combines a telescope, irrigation channel, and working channel and thereby allows arthroscopic lavage as well as arthroscopic microsurgery. Again, the arthroscope sheath is first inserted in the temporomandibular joint and then connected with the ALL-IN-ONE TMJ Arthroscope via the existing LUER lock connector. The arthroscope sheath features a scale that enables surgeons to track the insertion depth of the employed instruments. The palpation hook, scissors, and biopsy forceps can be directly inserted into the joint through the endoscope’s integrated working channel. The custom-fit tray ensures optimal endoscope storage and reprocessing.
All required components, including the endoscope, are autoclavable.
ALL-IN-ONE Sialendoscopes, ERLANGEN Model
- Semiflexible miniature endoscopes for exploring the salivary ducts and removing salivary stones
- cm-marking at the distal working end for reading the penetration depth
- Particularly flexible thanks to the nitinol outer sheath
- ALL-IN-ONE sialendoscopes with integrated irrigation and working channels
- Enables the minimally invasive removal of obstructions in the salivary ducts
- Optimal reprocessing as sialendoscopes are autoclavable
