Operating Room Laryngology

In the world of laryngoscopy, Olympus has a wide range of specialised nasopharyngoscopes as well as rigid laryngoscopes. The quality of the image is and has always been the primary focus of the company. Olympus offers a wide range of imaging systems, from full-HD resolution to 4K/UHD . All the latest imaging systems have built-in Narrow Band Imaging (NBI). NBI is an optical image enhancement technology that improves the visibility of vessels and other tissues on the mucosal surface. Olympus also offers a full line of surgical instruments, scopes, and equipment for the OR in addition to its well-known outpatient products.

Outpatient Laser Treatment of RRP

Outpatient treatment of Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis (RRP) with a blue laser fibre and a channeled 4-way endoscope for optimal visualisation, including the use of NBI to enhance the typical vascular patterns. An alternative to the surgical microlaryngoscopy approach in the OR.

TransOral UltraSonic Surgery (TOUSS)

What is TOUSS?

TOUSS (TransOral UltraSonic Surgery) is a minimally invasive, endoscopic approach for benign and malignant lesions in the upper aerodigestive tract. It is mainly based on the ultrasonic scalpel as resection tool and bipolar energy as hemostatic tool that improves the safety of the procedure. THUNDERBEAT is the only instrument that incorporates both ultrasound and bipolar energy in one device, thus allowing for fast and effective tissue dissection and safe and reliable hemostasis at the same time. TOUSS uses technology available to most institutions and has arisen as an alternative to TransOral Robotic Surgery (TORS), offering all its advantages while avoiding the elevated costs of acquiring and maintaining a robotic surgical platform. TOUSS has been developed by Dr. Mario Fernandez, Department Chief of Otorhinolaryngology at Hospital Universitario in Henares, Coslada, Madrid.

Benefits of TOUSS

The advantage of this technique in comparison with open techniques is avoiding the morbidity of external approaches, limiting the surgery strictly to the lesion and its surgical margin. For this reason, the technique is especially intended for patients previously treated with chemoradiotherapy, where open approaches have a more marked morbidity.

Compared to other transoral approaches such as laser microscopic surgery, TOUSS presents the benefits of the endoscopic approach, which:

  • Allows a greater magnification of the focused surgical field (unlike the microscope, which only has a single, extremely zoomed-in plane of focus above everything)
  • Is not dependent on adequate external exposure for its realisation

Exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO)

Often misdiagnosed as asthma, a breathing disorder known as exercise-induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO) can affect all kinds of people. In order to aid clinicians in making the correct diagnosis, the CLE test was introduced — a continuous laryngoscopy test.

The CLE test is the gold standard in diagnosing EILO. It provides a real time evaluation of the larynx during exercise (patient is running on a treadmill or riding on a bike). The portfolio of flexible laryngoscopes from Olympus can help physicians to make the correct diagnosis, enabling them to recommend the appropriate therapy.
