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 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

Headlight KS70

Special Features:

  • Long service life with a battery lifespan of up to 18 hours facilitates use in the OR
  • Optimal wearing comfort due to balanced, lightweight design and ergonomic headband
  • High-performance LED in combination with liquid lens technology for optimal depth illumination
  • Luminous field can be focused using the focus ring – adjustable from 30-150 mm at a working distance of 400 mm
  • Light intensity in maximum mode is 32,000 Lux (working distance 400 mm / illuminated field diameter 30 mm)

VITOM® 3D

3D Visualization for Open Heart Surgery

The VITOM® 3D system provides many surgical disciplines with a revolutionary solution for the visualization of microsurgical and open surgical interventions. Application possibilities are similar to that of the operating microscope. The most important functions are controlled via the IMAGE1 PILOT which is mounted to the OR table in close proximity to the surgeon.

  • Small, light and compact
  • Lower acquisition costs and creates synergistic effects with endoscopy by using the same video tower
  • Ergonomic work
  • Improved workflow – the OR team can view the procedure in the same image quality as the surgeon
