Laparoscopic minimally invasive bariatric procedures, like the gastric sleeve and the gastric bypass, require specialist imaging and therapeutic/hemostatic devices.
The versatility and unique hybrid energy of the Olympus THUNDERBEAT instrument allows the surgeon to achieve superior hemostasis of different vessels, like the mesentery artery and the short gastric vessels, as well as optimal dissection capability during stomach mobilisation. These advantages reduce the need to exchange instruments, increasing the efficiency of the procedures. Olympus can offer surgeons the best solution to provide the best outcome for the patient.
The Olympus VISERA ELITE II system enables surgeons to operate in 3D as they would in 2D, using a 30° videoscope with 75° image rotation, allowing them to suture, grasp tissues and vessels with the highest precision and safety in obese patients without any learning curve.
With the VISERA ELITE II platform, Olympus offers the combination of the high-level 3D Endoeye, as well as the Camera Head solution with IR (infrared fluorescence imaging) visualisation for easier detection of the perfusion and anastomosis after, for example, a gastrojejunostomy.
With the VISERA UHD 4K system, Olympus is now striving to make laparoscopic visibility even better than open surgery, allowing surgeons to have great resolution and colour contrast in order to help them better differentiate tissue boundaries, such as fat, nerves and blood vessels, and better visualise lesions.
