Gynecology

Hysteroscopy in the diagnosis and therapy of intrauterine disorders is now standard procedure in clinics and, to an increasing extent, in outpatient settings and private practices. Thanks to the miniaturization of the hysteroscopes, many procedures can now be performed with a minimum of trauma and without general anesthesia away from the OR. KARL STORZ has played a major role in this development and offers a number of "office" hysteroscopes with very small diameters.

Along with a product line for standard gynecological procedures using hysteroscopic and/or laparoscopic techniques, the KARL STORZ portfolio also includes endoscopes and specialized instruments for reproductive surgery and fetoscopy. Various amnioscopes for obstetrics or ductoscopes for mammary ductoscopy, with a diameter of approx. 0.8 mm, round off the range of products for gynecology.

Many gynecological procedures today can be performed using laparoscopic surgical techniques. Our product range is constantly being expanded not only to include morcellation systems or uterine manipulators for standard procedures such as myoma enucleation or supracervical hysterectomies (LASH) but also to offer instruments for niches such as the creation of laparoscopic-assisted neovagina.

Highlights

In-house Training Workstations from KARL STORZ with the GESEA Concept

Endoscopic training possibilities directly in the clinic

The steady progress in minimally invasive surgical techniques requires ongoing training and  professional development of surgeons and adequate opportunities for practice. 
Supported by KARL STORZ, the European Academy of Gynaecologic Surgery (EAGS) developed the so-called Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgical Education and Assessment Program (GESEA). Theoretical knowledge is offered free of charge and practical skills in laparoscopy and hysteroscopy are trained to ensure patient safety and the best possible surgical outcome.* The required training equipment is provided by KARL STORZ as a complete package.

  • Scientifically validated training program from the European Academy of Gynaecologic Surgery (EAGS)
  • Documentation of self-assessment possible
  • All from one source

Creating Certainty: Diagnostics and Treatment Outside the OR

Solutions for office hysteroscopy

Hysteroscopy allows accurate diagnosis of any abnormalities in the uterine cavity while 5 Fr. instruments often 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 obstacles to implantation prior to IVF treatment.

  • The CAMPO TROPHYSCOPE® with a diameter of only 2.9 mm allows an atraumatic primary approach to the uterine cavity under visualization
  • The irrigation function of the ENDOMAT® SELECT provides an optimal overview thanks to the constant maintenance of intracavitary pressure
  • Outsourcing diagnostic services and minor hysteroscopic procedures extends the capacity of the OR to the clinical outpatient setting

The Bipolar 5 mm Office Resectoscope

Versatile use

In addition to bipolar resectoscopes with diameters of 7 mm and 9 mm, KARL STORZ now offers a 5 mm resectoscope. Due to its small diameter, this resectoscope offers the possibility to perform resection outside the OR. Infertility patients or those suffering from abnormal bleeding can thus be treated in the doctor’s office or clinical outpatient setting, even without anesthesia. Together with the AUTOCON® III 400 HF generator, effective resection, coagulation or vaporization is achieved.

  • Minimal outer diameter
    • Optimized procedure time*
    • Enhanced safety, accessibility and patient satisfaction*
    • Possible to perform resection in the doctor’s office or clinical outpatient setting, even without anesthesia
    • Little or even no dilation required
  • Optional use as a diagnostic hysteroscope in conjunction with semirigid 5 Fr. instruments
  • Real bipolar system with current not returned via the sheath
