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

EasyGO!® II Generation

Tubular System for Endoscopic Spine

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

SpineTIP – System Optimized for Approaches to Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Decompression

Special Features:

  • One system – three sets optimized for standard approaches:
    Transforaminal, interlaminar and posterolateral
  • Brilliant image quality ensures clear visibility during surgery
  • Reusable bipolar electrodes for effective tissue and bone resection
  • Ergonomic DRILLCUT-X® II Spine handpiece with matching single-use burrs for precise and powerful ablation of bone material during fully endoscopic percutaneous surgery
  • Ergonomic and color-coded instruments for use in a safe and controlled manner

VITOM® 3D – 3D Visualization 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 most important functions are controlled via the IMAGE1 PILOT which is mounted to the OR table in close proximity to 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
