Olympus Introduces World's First Autoclavable 5mm HD Deflectable Videolaparoscope
Date:10/25/2011

CENTER VALLEY, Pa., Oct. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Olympus America Inc. introduced a new surgical imaging platform, VISERA ELITE, and a new 5mm HD deflectable videolaparoscope, the ENDOEYE FLEX 5, today at the American College of Surgeons 97th Annual Clinical Congress in San Francisco. The VISERA ELITE platform is equipped with HDTV imaging capability and advanced image processing to provide the best possible image for Olympus surgical scopes across multiple specialties.

The ENDOEYE FLEX 5 offers HD resolution in a 5mm diameter scope. The device uses digital-chip technology to place the camera on the tip of the scope, delivering high-quality, bright images and enabling doctors to see fine details during surgical procedures. Additionally, the scope allows for 100 degree angulation in all directions providing complete visualization of complex anatomical structures. The deflectable tip on the ENDOEYE FLEX 5 offers surgeons the flexibility to change the direction of view giving them a new way to observe the anatomy. It also minimizes potential collisions between instruments, which is common when operating in narrow spaces in procedures like single-site surgery, helping to ensure intra-abdominal triangulation. Finally, the ENDOEYE FLEX 5 is autoclavable which can result in significant reprocessing cost savings for the hospital.

The ENDOEYE FLEX 5 is well-positioned to meet the needs of surgeons adopting advanced surgical techniques in a wide range of bariatric, thoracic, colorectal and other specialties, including the single-site surgery approach. Olympus offers a system solution for single-site surgery, comprised of access, visualization and instrumentation. In Laparo-Endoscopic Single-Site (LESS) surgery, the TriPort+ access system is placed into an umbilical incision allowing single-port access for up to four instruments. The ENDOEYE FLEX 5 allows the surgeon to get the desired view and position the scope away from the instruments. After the procedur
