Urology

State-of-the-art urology is inconceivable without the diagnostic and therapeutic techniques of modern endoscopy. Cystoscopy, transurethral resection of the prostate (TUR), and ureterorenoscopy have become routine procedures and are continuously being improved by new technologies.

For all urological procedures, KARL STORZ offers complete solutions that combine sophisticated telescopes and instruments with perfectly compatible innovative and safe devices.

This includes HF surgery devices, devices for laser surgery, lithotripsy devices for destroying stones in the bladder, ureter, and kidney, rigid and flexible telescopes for procedures in the ureter, as well as instruments for gentle kidney stone removal and photodynamic diagnostics (PDD).

Instruments for urological and pediatric urology as well as flexible video endoscopes complete our line of urology products.

Laparoscopy in Surgery, Gynecology, and Urology
Laparoscopy, the inspection of the abdominal cavity using a rigid endoscope, has been used to assess abdominal and pelvic organs for many years. More

Highlights

A Revolution in Transurethral Treatment Concepts Complete System and Diverse Electrodes

The new bipolar concept from KARL STORZ sets new standards in terms of effectiveness, economic efficiency, patient safety and reliability and therefore revolutionizes the treatment of BPS and/or bladder tumors.
The wide range of electrodes from KARL STORZ for bipolar resectoscopes allows individual instrument configurations tailored to the OR situation as well as to the surgeon’s personal preferences for best surgical results. The KARL STORZ product portfolio includes loops for resection, incision, en-bloc resection as well as vaporization and enucleation electrodes for the prostate, bladder and urethra.

  • Real bipolar system: No current backflow via the sheath
  • Maximum efficiency with minimal, controlled current flow: Minimal tissue penetration, significantly reduced Obturator nerve stimulation
  • Precise cutting: Thanks to precise centralization of the necessary current and free choice of loop diameter
  • Initial incision without delay: Due to automatic HF current regulation
  • Use of saline solution: Reduced risk of TUR syndrome, no time limitations during treatment, enhanced Training possibilities without compromising patient safety
  • Techniques in addition to conventional resection: Bipolar enucleation and vaporization

AUTOCON® III 400

New Generation in Bipolar Resection

The new HF generator from KARL STORZ has been further enhanced and optimized, particularly with regard to the performance of bipolar applications. It therefore ideally complements the KARL STORZ systems for bipolar resection. Precise initial cutting and exactly coordinated power regulation enables the unit to deliver optimal energy for bipolar resection and thus leads to perfect results. Consequently, the new bipolar concept from KARL STORZ sets new standards in terms of effectiveness, economic efficiency, patient safety, and system reliability and revolutionizes the treatment of BPS and/or bladder tumors.

Special Features:

  • Controlled cutting function and application of energy to the tissue with pinpoint precision
  • Real bipolar system as current is returned via the electrode
  • The high-performance generator offers the option of additional bipolar techniques such as vaporization and enucleation
  • Maximum user comfort thanks to high-resolution touch display

Operating Cystoscope-Urethroscope for Children

For straightforward and gentle treatment

The operating cysto-urethroscopes with atraumatic tip and excellent gliding properties provide the operating surgeon with enhanced possibilities for diagnosis as well as straightforward and gentle treatment of the patient. The straight working channel and the excellent telescope significantly enhance the efficient performance of various procedures.

Special Features:

  • Atraumatically shaped distal end of sheath with rounded tip
  • Minimal sheath diameter
  • Maximum irrigation due to the large, straight working channel
