Urology

Extensive research and development at Olympus lead to an up to date line of products for urology with the award winning OES Pro Resectoscope.

Application-specific Procedures

Bladder

The procedure Bladder is discribed by Narrow Band Imaging (NBI), Photodynamic Diagnosis (PDD) and TURis-B.

To Procedure

Prostate - Plasma Vaporization

The TURis plasma vaporization electrode is a new addition to complement the established Olympus TURis system (transurethral resection in saline). Unlike conventional vaporization techniques, it is therefore not a monopolar but a modern bipolar system. By using physiological saline solution as the irrigation fluid and a locally restricted current flow (avoidance of an external neutral electrode) surrounding tissue and nerves are protected, tissue denaturisation is minimized and TUR syndrome is avoided. Using bipolar technology further increases the safety of the operation.

Stone Management

Ureteroscopy is the treatment of choice for small and large kidney stones due to its clear clinical advantages that meet the financial goals of your practice. Olympus' innovative total procedure solutions consisting of flexible and rigid ureteroscopes as well as stone management disposables enable greater clinical success such as high stone freeness rates in a single procedure and improved patient safety.

To Procedure

Laparoscopy - Prostatectomy

Endoscopic extraperitoneal radical prostatectomy (EERPE) is a novel laparoscopy technique for prostate cancer surgery developed by Professor Stolzenburg and colleagues at the University of Leipzig, Germany. In EERPE, the surgeon avoids the peritoneal cavity and creates a pre-peritoneal space from which to access the prostate. This differs from the transperitoneal approach used in laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (LRP), and may help reduce intraperitoneal complications.

To Procedure

LESS Nephrectomy

Laparo-Endoscopic Single-Site surgery – known as LESS surgery – is a new form of minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery. It is improving outcomes in a variety of surgical applications, including kidney surgery. LESS nephrectomy allows the removal of the kidney via a single incision in the umbilicus. This results in an improved cosmetic outcome for the patient and a potential reduction in postoperative pain.
