Neurosurgery

Minimally invasive technologies are opening up new options in the field of neurosurgery, especially in the diagnosis and therapy of defects of the intracranial ventricles and the skull base. Endoscopes with different viewing angles allow a view of the anatomy of the brain, which is not possible with a microscope. The use of special endoscopes, with or without working channels, and dedicated micro instruments enable the surgeon to perform more advanced operative interventions.

A wide variety of interventions can be performed by an entirely endoscopic procedure, e.g., the removal of intraventricular cysts or tumors or the creation of the transnasal access to the pituitary gland and the skull base.
Another field of application is the so-called endoscopically assisted micro­neurosurgery which utilizes endoscopes to perform high-risk interventions in order to inspect areas that cannot be directly visualized and thus greatly enhances the safety of neurosurgical interventions.

KARL STORZ offers a wide range of instruments for intracranial interventions as well as for approaches to and procedures in the skull base area, complemented with a special pediatric portfolio. The scope of products is rounded off with a high-speed motor system with a multitude of drill, craniotomy and perforator handpieces.

Highlights

Video Neuro-Endoscope for Intracranial Neurosurgery

Special Features:

  • Minimal outer diameter of 2.8 mm with integrated working channel of 1.2 mm
  • Continuously variable 270° deflection (up/down) for intuitive orientation and visualization of the entire ventricular system
  • Excellent image quality thanks to auto focus as well as integrated LED light source – optimal tissue differentiation, even in areas that are difficult to access
  • Video neuro-endoscope is easy to insert and navigate due to high torque stability – direct transmission of hand movements to the distal tip
  • Ergonomic work using only one hand thanks to lightweight handle and integrated LED light source
