Most surgical procedures for pathologies of the lower gastrointestinal tract, such as colon cancer or inflammatory diseases, can be treated through a surgical minimally invasive laparoscopic approach, conferring a number of benefits such as a superior cosmetic result and reduced pain.
For minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery, both quality imaging and the use of a reliable energy device is necessary for clear visualisation of the surgical field during the procedure and for secure vessel sealing and dissection.
The unique THUNDERBEAT hybrid technology enables secure vessel sealing and precise dissection, allowing surgeons the correct identification of the different anatomical planes. These features can contribute to greater surgical precision, reducing the risk of potential damage to adjacent structures.
Olympus imaging systems provide optimal visibility. The Olympus 3D VISERA ELITE II system with 30° image rotation enables a more natural 3D perception and realistic vision, even in the narrow area of deep rectum. With the VISERA ELITE II platform, Olympus offers the combination of the high level 3D Endoeye as well as the Camera Head solution with IR (infrared fluorescence imaging) visualisation for easier detection of the perfusion and anastomosis during a colon resection.
With the VISERA UHD 4K system, Olympus is now striving to make laparoscopic visibility even better than open surgery, allowing surgeons an easier determination of tissue boundaries such as fat, nerves, and blood vessels, as well as a better visualisation of lesions.
