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.

Highlights

Fluorescence Imaging in Thoracic Surgery

OPAL1® technology for NIR/ICG with the IMAGE1 S™ camera platform

For imaging with the fluorescent dye indocyanine green (ICG)*, KARL STORZ offers brilliant FULL HD imaging of the vascular and lymphatic systems for thoracic surgery. The NIR/ICG system offers additional visualization options, especially for anatomical segment resection.

  • 5 and 10 mm telescopes with 0° and 30° directions of view available
  • Xenon-based technology (no laser safety measures necessary)
  • 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

     

*Please verify that the fluorescent dye indocyanine green is approved for the respective indication in your country.

Instruments for Video-assisted Thoracic Surgery

KARL STORZ offers instruments for Video-assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS) that meet the requirements of both hygiene and economic efficiency. All VATS instruments can be disassembled into two or three parts and can therefore be individually combined with various handles. The instruments and jaws have been specifically adapted to the anatomy of the thorax, offering the operating surgeons the best prerequisites for VATS procedures.
The portfolio is expanded to include reusable trocars with flexible cannulas as well as the proven KARL STORZ HOPKINS® telescopes.

Product Overview:

  • HOPKINS® telescopes with various lengths and diameters
  • Flexible and rigid trocars in 6 and 11 mm
