KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America, Inc. Key Developments
KARL Storz Endoscopy-America, Inc. Announces the Availability of Flex-Guard Laser Fiber and Sheath System
Sep 24 15
KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America, Inc. announced the availability of the FLEX-GUARD Laser Fiber and Sheath System, which are used with KARL STORZ FLEX-XC or FLEX-X2 Flexible Ureteroscopes. The system helps to safeguard the scope’s working channel from both mechanical and thermal damage, which are recognized as two causes of significant scope repairs. Used with the KARL STORZ FLEX-XC or FLEX-X2 Flexible Ureteroscopes, the FLEX-GUARD Laser Fiber and Sheath System is designed to facilitate multiple passes of the laser fiber through a deflected scope, simplifying procedures. The new protective technology is being well received within the urology field. The FLEX-GUARD comes preassembled with a ScopeSafe laser fiber and protective sheath. The ScopeSafe laser fibers incorporate patented optical filter technology that helps prevent laser energy from entering the cladding during deflection, insulating the scope channel from thermal damage. The easy-to-use sheath with Micro Adjuster have clear markers to indicate when the sheath is covering the fiber tip and is ready for insertion. This design facilitates multiple passes of the fiber through a deflected scope, simplifying the procedure. The FLEX-GUARD is available in three sizes, and non-sheathed ScopeSafe laser fibers are also available.

KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America, Inc. Launches New Analytics Tool to Improve Operating Room Turnover Efficiency
Jul 17 14
KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America, Inc. announced its release of a new solution to enhance OR workflow, efficiency, and collaboration. In the company's newest release of the Essential NEO OR1(R) integrated operating room system, KARL STORZ demonstrates how image acquisition, image management, surgical informatics, and surgical collaboration represent key pillars for delivering integrated surgical care. In addition, the technology release coincides with a program to support Miracle Flights for Kids(R), which helps children requiring specialized medical care receive the treatment they need from doctors and hospitals. In an era when costs are being driven out of the healthcare model, hospitals are focused on efficiency. One critical efficiency metric that is tracked in hospital operating rooms is Turnover Time, which is the window of time needed to clean and prepare the OR between surgeries. Lower Turnover Times result in higher OR utilization and more patients receiving needed care in a timely manner. To help surgical teams reduce Turnover Time, the latest KARL STORZ Essential NEO OR1 system introduces the industry's first visual TurnOver Measurement System. This new analytical feature is designed to promote faster Turnover Times, allow for improved workflow efficiency, support surgical teamwork, and contribute to safe surgical processes.
