Proctology

Rectoscopy and proctoscopy are established methods for diagnosing and treating rectal disease. The combination with video endoscopic technologies permits extraordinarily good visualization as well as clear documentation of findings and extends the range of indications to complex minimally invasive procedures such as transanal rectal surgery.

For these indications, KARL STORZ offers a wide range of products to hospitals and offices, ranging from instruments for rectal biopsies and polyp removal, optical forceps, and instruments for treating hemorrhoids to video endoscopic instruments for transanal endoscopic operation (TEO) and video-assisted anal fistula treatment (VAAFT).

Highlights

E.P.Si.T. – Endoscopic Pilonidal Sinus Treatment

The pilonidal sinus is an acute or chronic inflammatory process in the subcutaneous adipose tissue, often occurring in the sacrococcygeal region1. E.P.Si.T. – Endoscopic Pilonidal Sinus Treatment – proceeds in two phases. In the first – diagnostic – phase, the sinus cavity and the sinus tracts are examined. The aim of the second – therapeutic – phase is to ablate the abscess cavity and to eliminate the fistula2. Both phases are performed under direct endoscopic control.

Special Features:

  • E.P.Si.T. can be performed in an outpatient setting
  • Ablation of the abscess cavity and elimination of the fistula under direct vision
  • High patient satisfaction3
  • Straightforward, safe, effective and reproducible method of treatment3
  • Instruments can also be used to treat anal fistulas (VAAFT technique)

TEO® – Transanal Endoscopic Operations

The minimally invasive transanal platform for the treatment of rectal neoplasia

Transanal Endoscopic Operations (TEO®) combines the minimal invasiveness of an intervention via a natural body orifice (NOTES) with the precision of resection under endoscopic microsurgery.

Special Features:

  • Available in lengths of 7.5, 15 and 20 cm
  • Compatible with all standard camera systems for laparoscopy
  • Mechanical holding arm enables the platform to be placed in a very stable position

TEO® Platform with Flexible Working Attachment and High-Flow Adaptor – B-PORT

TEO® (Transanal Endoscopic Operations) combines the minimal invasiveness of an intervention via a natural orifice (NOTES) with the precision of resection under visual control. A wide-lumen rectoscope enables precise guidance of operating instruments under endoscopic control. In cooperation with Prof. Luigi Boni, Milan, Italy, it was possible to optimize the TEO® platform for TaTME (Transanal Total Mesorectal Excision).

Special Features:

  • Great freedom of movement thanks to flexible working attachment
  • Instruments up to size 15 mm can be used
  • The high-flow adaptor enables a fast and stable pneumorectum as well as effective smoke evacuation
  • Straight distal end simplifies the placement of an endoscopic purse-string suture
  • Also suitable for TaTME
