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.

Direction of View: EndoCAMeleon® with Variable Direction of View

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.
The ENDOCAMELEON® is particularly beneficial for working in tight joint spaces as the all-round view has been greatly enhanced.

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

ARTHROPUMP® Power: The Clever System for Arthroscopic Fluid Management

The ARTHROPUMP® Power is an intelligent double roller pump which ensures a constant balance between inflow and outflow in order to create a clear intraarticular image.
The pump parameters can be set or adjusted intuitively via touch screen.

  • Communicates with the UNIDRIVE® S III ARTHRO shaver system and reacts to changes in pressure and flow parameters
  • The hemostasis and lavage modes assure clear imaging in the case of bleeding or an increased fluid loss
  • The functions of the pump (hemostasis, lavage) and those of the shaver system can be controlled by a four-pedal footswitch
  • The automatic pressure control ensures optimal patient protection.
