Thorax

Diagnosis and therapy in the thoracic region would be inconceivable without endoscopy today. Originally only used for diagnosing pleural disorders, the endoscope is now an integral component, even in major surgical procedures. Taking advantage of autofluorescence, bronchoscopy is useful for the early detection of lung tumors. Distending mediastinoscopes are used to perform extensive lymph node dissection with therapeutic intent.

The range of products available from KARL STORZ for thoracic endoscopy comprises endoscopes and instruments for endoscopic or endoscopically assisted thoracic surgery, medical thoracoscopy, mediastinoscopy as well as rigid and flexible bronchoscopy, including procedures performed with fluorescence imaging.

CleverCurve – Sophisticated Design

Sliding sheath instruments for thoracic surgery

In the video-assisted technique, instruments are needed to replace manual palpation in open surgery because tumors and other pathologies are not always easy to identify visually. If the object in question is located deep in the tissue, for instance, palpation is critical. Hence, in VATS, appropriately designed instruments must be used to compensate for the advantages of open surgery.

For this purpose, we have added the new CLEVERCURVE line to our portfolio. These instruments are designed using sliding sheath technology, which features a passive, stationary element as well as an active, movable element. The resulting direct force transmission from the handle to the jaw achieves good tactile feedback.

Altogether, the line consists of seven instruments with various jaw types, some featuring a surgical ratchet.

Bronchoscopy Instruments for Children

A practical set classification for the clinical routine

KARL STORZ offers instruments for pediatric bronchoscopy that are customized to the anatomy of children. This includes bronchoscopes in various sizes and lengths as well as optical forceps and accessories.

They are organized by age and corresponding tracheal diameter. Each set includes the appropriate bronchoscope sizes with a compatible telescope, optical forceps, and accessories. The instrument sets therefore offer everything needed for foreign body removal.
