Karl Storz 11272CU1 Flexible Cystoscope

Introducing the Karl Storz 11272CU1 Flexible Cystoscope for sale.

Flexible cystoscopes, unlike the rigid ones, combine both the optical system and the working / irrigation channel into a single unit. The optical system is composed of a bundle of optical fibers that are responsible for the transmission of images and two similar fascicles responsible for transmitting light. The optical fibers are isolated, parallel, can transmit light (the image) even if bent, and are connected to a lens system that serves to magnify and focus the image. Because of the way the optical fibers are arranged, a small space remains between them, causing the granular, “honeycomb” aspect of the image. However, this drawback has been corrected in the last-generation cystoscopes. Similar to rigid cystoscopes, the optical system features a mark in the visual field (often located at 12 o’clock) that is meant to facilitate orientation during cystoscopy.

Karl Storz 11272CU1 Flexible Cystoscope Features

  • Large angle of view and movable distal tip for better orientation
  • 7 Fr diameter instrument channel
  • Waterproof, fully cleanable, resistant to soaking and gas sterilizable
  • Fits all Karl Storz systems without the need for adapters
  • First class optical quality of both objective lens system and fiber optic image transmitting bundle
  • Superior life-span due to robust mechanical design

Connecting the video camera to the Karl Storz 11272CU1 Flexible Cystoscope’s telescope allows viewing the exploration on a TV monitor (video-cystoscopy). This modality of performing cystoscopy has been adopted virtually by all urologists. Video-cystoscopy has multiple advantages:

  • Increased comfort for the physician
  • Binocular vision
  • Reduced infectious contamination (the physician avoiding contact with the patient’s urine)
  • Documentation of procedure results by recording the video images and, implicitly, monitoring bladder changes over time (follow-up)
  • Useful in the training of resident doctors
  • Patient education
