Instrument Set for Endoscopic Middle Ear Surgery

The key aspect of endoscopic middle ear surgery is the rediscovery of the ear canal as a natural and direct approach to the middle ear. The wide view provided by the endoscope allows a minimally invasive approach to the tympanum and a comprehensive view of the structures to be targeted in middle ear surgery. The endoscope can be used to treat a variety of middle ear pathologies.

  • Minimally invasive approach
  • Allows a complete examination of the middle ear with the help of angled telescopes
  • Photo and video documentation

VITOM® 3D – 3D Visualization for Microsurgery and Open Surgery

The VITOM® 3D system provides many surgical disciplines with a 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 on the OR table in the direct vicinity of the surgeon.

  • Smaller, lighter and more compact than an operating microscope
  • Lower acquisition costs and creates synergistic effects with endoscopy by using the same video tower – thus combining the benefits of endoscopy and microscopy
  • Ergonomic work – the user is not confined to the eyepiece
  • Improved workflow – the OR team can view the procedure in the same image quality as the surgeon

Contact Endoscopes from KARL STORZ for Laryngoscopy

For intraoperative, early detection of abnormal tissue

Contact endoscopes make it possible to better visualize the tissue structures of mucosa thanks to 60 or 150x magnification which can be adjusted via the rotating wheel on the contact endoscope. This allows a more precise evaluation of benign or malignant lesions.

  • Contact endoscopes available in 4 different models
  • More precise optical evaluation of malignant or benign lesions
  • Efficient use of contact endoscopes in combination with IMAGE1 S™ visualization modes
  • Use of the vital dye methylene blue no longer mandatory thanks to IMAGE1 S™ visualization modes

Instruments for Transoral Microlaryngoscopy

Contact endoscopy is mainly used in the field of transoral microlaryngoscopy. KARL STORZ offers a wide range of instruments for this indication which, combined with contact endoscopes, enables appropriate treatment.

IMAGE1 S™ 4U – mORe than a camera

The IMAGE1 S™ 4U camera system allows the operating surgeon to make optimal use of the benefits offered by 4K technology. A notable feature is the image quality: High image brightness, impressive colors, greater richness of detail and a significantly improved depth effect characterize this system. Thanks to the system’s modularity, 4U components can be easily integrated into the existing IMAGE1 S™ camera platform. Consequently, the system is still compatible with existing technologies (e.g., rigid, flexible, fluorescence and 3D endoscopy) and can be adapted to meet individual customer needs.

  • IMAGE1 S™ 4U impresses with outstanding, razor-sharp images
    • Excellent image brightness
    • First-rate color rendition
    • Greater richness of detail
  • Three innovative visualization technologies for tissue differentiation:
    • CLARA: Homogeneous illumination
    • CHROMA: Contrast enhancement
    • SPECTRA*: Spectral color shift and switch
  • Easy integration into the IMAGE1 S™ camera platform

Endoscopes and Instruments for Minimally Invasive Transnasal Skull Base Surgery

The use of an endoscope in transnasal skull base surgery offers several advantages. These include a wide field of vision and improved light intensity which provide a clear visualization of deep-lying structures. Moreover, HOPKINS® rod lens telescopes with an angled direction of view (e.g., 30°, 45°) offer the possibility of a direct view of otherwise invisible areas, thus facilitating a surgical procedure under visual control.

The introduction of 4K video technology and 3D endoscopy provides good image quality in order to perform the procedure.

Management of Bleeding

Bleeding in the operative field impairs the view of the operation site and can, depending on the extent of bleeding, pose a risk to the health of the patient. Only successful hemostasis – Surgical Bleeding Management – makes it possible to continue surgery and to prevent complications caused by poor visibility.

NAV1® SinusTracker™

The innovative planning software for new routes in FESS surgery

The NAV1® SINUSTRACKER™ planning software enhances the KARL STORZ NAV1® ELECTROMAGNETIC system with the automatic planning of access paths in paranasal sinus and skull base surgery. On the basis of a preoperatively set starting and destination point in the patient’s radiological data, the software allows the surgeon to determine a precise access path that is specially adapted to the individual anatomic structures of the patient.
The physician then reviews and modifies the suggested access path at his/her discretion. Intraoperatively, the selected route is visualized on the navigation screen so that the actual position in the site is under constant control.
