Spine Surgery

The incidence of spinal disorders has undergone a drastic increase in recent years and not only in industrial countries. "Back pain" has reached epidemic proportions and is causing major economic loss worldwide. Should surgery be necessary, access and operation sites must be kept as small as possible as the vertebral column constitutes a complex system. To function correctly, the spine relies on the balanced interplay of individual structures. Minimally invasive operative techniques with corresponding visualization ideally fulfill these requirements and optimally combine low traumatization with therapeutic efficiency.

KARL STORZ has, therefore, developed a wide range of products for spine surgery.

The product range comprises of dedicated, access-optimized telescopes and instruments for fully endoscopic procedures such as percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy, percutaneous endoscopic cervical discectomy and thoracoscopy. Furthermore, KARL STORZ offers instrument sets for endoscopically assisted, microsurgical and open procedures in spinal surgery. A high-speed motor system with a wide range of drill handpieces complements the portfolio.

Highlights

Instruments for Thoracic Spine Surgery

Special Features:

  • Specially developed instruments with ergonomic handles
  • High-resolution KARL STORZ FULL HD technology enables clear and distinct differentiation of anatomic structures
  • Less invasiveness due to 3 to 4 trocar ports instead of a large abdominal incision
  • À-la-carte concept for efficient compilation of customized instrument set

EasyGO!® II. Generation

Tubular System for Endoscopic Spine Surgery

Special Features:

  • A wide range of applications for treating degenerative spine diseases at the lumbar and cervical levels
  • The second, completely reworked generation provides significantly more working space and application possibilities
  • Specially adapted telescopes and the high-resolution KARL STORZ FULL HD technology enable clear and distinct differentiation of anatomic structures
  • Sequential dilation and the use of smaller trocar sizes can reduce muscle trauma and skin incision length
  • Specially developed malleable drill handpieces for use with all trocar lengths

VITOM® 3D

Innovative Visualization System for Open Spine 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 surgeon can work comfortably via a 3D monitor which allows more freedom of motion and countless positioning options. The most important functions are controlled via the IMAGE1 PILOT, which is mounted on the OR table in the direct vicinity of the surgeon.

  • Ergonomic work – the user is not confined to the eyepiece
  • Improved workflow – the entire OR team has the same view of the site as the surgeon
  • Flexible, diverse application possibilities – from visualization and documentation to education and training
  • Combined application with spine retractors, retractors and tubular trocars such as the EASYGO!® II generation possible
