In this respect, KARL STORZ also supports training centres around the world.

Partnership with IRCAD

Training is a prerequisite for every surgeon to use the progress achieved in endoscopy for the well-being of patients. For more than 20 years now, IRCAD has been actively taking part in the evolution and development of minimally invasive surgical techniques.

Since 2004, KARL STORZ appreciates the intensive cooperation we have with IRCAD Strasbourg. At IRCAD the medical curriculum remains in the hands of the medical partners and this is combined with the technical expertise of KARL STORZ as a medical technology partner. This guarantees that both partners can focus on core skills. As an industry partner we are convinced by this training concept and support it whenever possible.

Minilaparoscopy has now become a popular surgical technique as this method – also in hybrid procedures with standard instruments (diameter 5 mm) – represents a flat learning curve for the user and enhanced cosmetic results for the patient.
  • Complete instrument set for minilaparoscopy (diameter 3.5 mm) available (trocars, unipolar and bipolar instruments, suction-irrigation systems, suture and ligature instruments) Modular design: 3-part dismantling instruments for maximum hygiene and variability
  • Diverse combination possibilities thanks to a wide range of jaws with various outer sheaths and CLICKLINE handles
  • Additional stability due to combination with metal outer sheath
  • Rotating bipolar instruments (diameter 3.5 mm)
The IMAGE1 S™ camera platform offers surgeons a single system for all applications. As a modular camera platform, IMAGE1 S™ combines various technologies (e.g., rigid, flexible and 3D endoscopy) in one system and can therefore be adapted to individual customer needs. Furthermore, near infrared (NIR/ICG) for fluorescence imaging, the integration of operating microscopes and the use of VITOM® 3D is possible via the camera platform.
