Cardiovascular Surgery

In minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS), both scientific and technical progress have been made in recent years – the latter in collaboration with industry. For certain indications, users consider MICS a good alternative to open surgery. Whenever possible, modern heart clinics now offer patients minimally invasive procedures as the treatment of choice for cardiovascular disease.

KARL STORZ supports cardiac surgeons with a range of products for visualizing procedures, in the form of the modular camera platform IMAGE1S.

In combination with the KARL STORZ holding arm systems, the camera systems enable surgeons to display structures in high resolution using 2D or 3D technology, as well as to document procedures.

Currently, this visualization technology is used in minimally invasive heart valve surgery, including in mitral or aortic valve reconstruction or replacement.

It also offers added value in endoscopic atrial ablation or endoscopically assisted minimally invasive coronary bypass surgery.

With our groundbreaking, modular visualization systems and specialties, we are your partner in advanced cardiothoracic surgery as well as pediatric cardiac surgery!

Highlights

Telescopes for Heart Surgery

In video-assisted mitral valve surgery, 30° telescopes with a diameter of 5 or 10 mm are in standard use. The mitral valve and the surrounding tissue are visualized by means of an access through the right intercostal space and the right atrium.

For endoscopic atrial ablation, most surgeons use 0° telescopes with a diameter of 5 or 10 mm to visualize the surgical field. This allows accurate positioning of the ablation device.

KARL STORZ additionally offers the ENDOCAMELEON® with a variable direction of view of 0° to 90°. It allows adjusting the direction of view to fit any surgical situation. The rigid HOPKINS® telescope is particularly well suited for use in anatomically narrow spaces, such as in minimally invasive mitral valve surgery and atrial ablation.

4K Monitor Portfolio

Used in conjunction with the IMAGE1 S™ 4U camera system, the new 4K monitors complete the KARL STORZ imaging chain perfectly. They are available in various sizes (up to 58") and technologies (2D/3D) to meet the individual requirements of different procedures.

4K technology offers an extended color space combined with enhanced color saturation due to the implementation of the BT.2020 standard in the monitors. 

Thanks to the special tempered safety glass, all monitors feature strong resistance to scratches and knocks.

With a screen diagonal of 32", the monitors feature an enclosed glass surface that allows quick and easy wipe disinfection to guarantee optimal hygiene properties.

IMAGE1 S™ 3D – A Dimension Ahead

The IMAGE1 S™ 3D camera platform provides surgeons with excellent depth perception. Furthermore, the 3D stereoscopic imaging system is particularly valuable for activities that demand a high degree of spatial perception. Thanks to the modular system design, existing 2D systems can be upgraded to 3D.

  • 3D system featuring video endoscopes with a diameter of 10 mm
  • Easy toggle between 3D and 2D
  • Easy integration into the IMAGE1 S™ platform
  • Three innovative visualization technologies for easy tissue differentiation
  • in 2D and 3D:
    - CLARA: Homogeneous illumination
    - CHROMA: Contrast enhancement
    - SPECTRA*: Spectral color shift and switch
  • Provides type CF defibrillation protection when used with TIPCAM®1 S 3D LAP in conjunction with the IMAGE1 S™ camera control unit with CF-defib symbol on the connection port
