Supporting Faster and More Accurate Surgery 3D Laparoscopy System Launched


Olympus Medical Systems Corp. (President: Akihiro Taguchi) will, starting in late April 2013, progressively commence sales throughout the world of a 3D laparoscopy system capable of presenting three dimensional images of internal organs during surgery, and a 3D laparoscope with world-first deflectable tip.

Laparoscopic surgery is performed using surgical endoscopes (laparoscopes) that are inserted into the body via some of small incisions in the abdomen to allow the surgeon to view inside the abdominal cavity. Because it is less demanding on the patient, the technique has entered widespread use as an alternative to previous open incision procedures. Designed to provide even greater accuracy in laparoscopic surgery, the newly developed products are respectively a 3D laparoscopy system and 3D laparoscope that provide three dimensional images of the tissue being operated on.

Connecting the 3D laparoscope to the system to enable 3D imaging gives greater depth perception of the tissue being operated on, something that was lacking in the flat images provided by previous 2D imaging systems. This supports faster and more accurate laparoscopic surgery.

The new 3D laparoscope is the first in the world to incorporate a deflectable tip. This provides users with view field flexibility as well as operating characteristics that are similar to the 2D products with which they are already familiar.
