Cardiovascular Surgery

Endoscopes are a valuable tool for reducing access trauma in cardiac surgery. In the areas of documentation and demonstrations for (continued) medical education, the options and advantages of endoscopy are increasingly being recognized as well. In recent years, minimally invasive cardiac surgery has made enormous progress, and in many areas, it now represents an alternative to so-called open procedures. Advantages such as maintenance of thoracic stability thanks to the elimination of the sternotomy, faster mobilization, reduced wound healing problems as well as far better cosmetic results are powerful arguments in favor of this method.

The product range developed by KARL STORZ goes beyond endoscopy, and in addition to endoscopes and instruments for mitral valve surgery, endoscopic atrial ablation, and endoscopic harvesting of the great saphenous vein and radial artery, it also includes modular retractor systems for adults, children, and infants. In vascular surgery, KARL STORZ offers special instruments for laparoscopic, laparoscopic-assisted, and hand-assisted abdominal aorta surgery.

Highlights

IMAGE1 S 3D – A Dimension Ahead

The KARL STORZ 3D system offers the surgeon excellent depth perception. The stereoscopic 3D system is particularly valuable for activities such as suturing and knotting that demand a high degree of spatial perception.

  • Lightweight and ergonomic design
  • Autoclavable endoscope
  • 3D system with video endoscopes in 10 mm diameter and with VITOM® 3D
  • Easy switchover from 3D to 2D
  • Easy integration into the IMAGE1 S platform
  • Three innovative visualization possibilities for easy tissue differentiation: CLARA, CHROMA and SPECTRA – in 2D and 3D

5 mm HOPKINS® Telescopes for Heart Surgery

Imaging systems such as the endoscopy unit are increasingly used to aid cardiovascular surgery. More and more interventions are being performed in a minimally invasive fashion. KARL STORZ offers telescopes with a diameter of 5 mm for this purpose.

  • HOPKINS® rod lens system for best possible image quality
  • Optimal brightness, contrast and detail features
  • Highest imaging fidelity of surface, structure and depth

VITOM®

Visualization System for Open Heart Surgery

The VITOM® system is a complementary solution to OR illumination cameras, loupes and operating microscopes. It offers the possibility to display open surgical procedures in a high quality manner. Moreover, the VITOM® system is an excellent teaching and training aid and is ideally suited for documenting surgical procedures.

  • Optimal application possibilities for heart surgery as well as pediatric heart surgery
  • Visualization with great depth of field and optimal magnification
  • Compact design requiring minimal space in the OR
  • Compatibility with IMAGE1 S camera platform
