Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine

Joints connect bones to each other and provide the body with agility and stability. Obesity, misalignment, physical inactivity as well as sports injuries can lead to joint problems and restricted movement.

Many minimally invasive techniques can now be performed in joint surgery thanks to modern arthroscopy. The product range from KARL STORZ covers endoscopic instrument sets and implants for treatment of the shoulder, elbow, hip and knee joints as well as the wrist, interphalangeal and ankle joints.

In cooperation with renowned physicians, KARL STORZ was able to develop innovative products and techniques for, among others, meniscal refixation, cruciate ligament reconstruction, reconstruction of shoulder instability as well as hip arthroscopy.

Furthermore, KARL STORZ offers an appropriate portfolio of implants for arthroscopic reconstructive procedures. This segment includes both titanium and bioresorbable implants such as interference screws, suture anchors and fixation buttons.

Highlights

Diamond Standard: HOPKINS® Telescopes and Sheaths for Optimal Vision

KARL STORZ HOPKINS® telescopes are considered to be the best arthroscopes in the industry. The diverse product range covers all arthroscopic interventions while the unique rod lens system ensures excellent image quality with optimal brightness, contrast and detail properties.

The product range includes all well-established angles of view in arthroscopy:
• 0° • 30° • 70°

Arthroscopes with diameters ranging from 1 mm to 4 mm leave nothing to be desired. A selection of sheaths with various locking mechanisms, which are co-ordinated with HOPKINS® telescopes, ensures the safe locking of the telescope in the sheath.

EndoCAMeleon® with Variable Direction of View

A Revolution in Imaging

ENDOCAMELEON® ARTHRO is a multidirectional arthroscope that combines the existing HOPKINS® technology with a variable direction of view. This guarantees optimal image quality with ideal visualization. The desired direction of view can be adjusted between 15° and 90° during surgery.

Special Features:

  • HOPKINS® telescope with unique rod lens system for optimal brightness and contrast
  • Easy-to-use adjusting knob selects the desired direction of view (15° to 90°)
  • Better visualization of difficult-to-reach anatomical structures
  • Time-saving as portal changeover is reduced

ENDOMAT® SELECT – Meets Your Exact Requirements

ENDOMAT® SELECT for arthroscopy is a roller pump that regulates the irrigation of fluids according to the latest standards. ENDOMAT® SELECT for arthroscopy communicates effectively with the KARL STORZ shaver unit UNIDRIVE® S III Arthro. It also regulates the pressure and the flow rate to provide optimal imaging while maintaining joint distension. An optional feature is the BOOST mode that can be activated at any time. This provides temporary increase in pressure and irrigation inside the joint in order to stop bleeding.

ENDOMAT® SELECT has been designed as an interdisciplinary pump. Depending on individual preferences, the pump can be equipped with various software packages so that the unit can be used for either individual or multiple disciplines.

Benefits at a glance:

  • User-friendly interface and simple handling thanks to tubing set for single hand control
  • Rapid communication with the shaver unit
  • Safe use thanks to tubing set recognition
  • Seamless integration into existing systems
  • Optional software allows further applications to be added at any time
