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.

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. To optimally structure our comprehensive product range for the benefit of our customers, we offer a total of three sets for foreign body removal in children. 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. 

Sets:

  • Set 1: Age group 0-6 months
  • Set 2: Age group 6 months – 6 years
  • Set 3: Age group 6-14 years 

Optical Forceps for Rigid Bronchoscopy

The KARL STORZ product range offers a large selection of rigid bronchoscopes with matching instruments. This includes optical forceps. Six model series in various lengths and sizes cover a wide variety of applications. With our new, patented sheath design and the modified handle with force limitation, KARL STORZ now offers an even more attractive product. 


Special Features:

  • Simplified cleaning due to new, patented design
  • Improved tactile feedback when grasping soft foreign bodies
  • Force limitation to protect from jaw fracture

  • Switching between the white light and ICG modes possible at any time
  • Optimal illumination and contrast enhancement
  • Multidisciplinary applications, e.g., thoracic surgery, general and visceral surgery, gynecology, urology as well as reconstructive surgery
