  • Adaptable to the skull thickness
  • Optimal documentation of the procedure

Little LOTTA Neuroendoscope for Intraventricular Procedures

Special Features:

  • The slender endoscope (diameter 3.6 mm) fits into a 4.5 mm sheath and is therefore suitable for treating all patients with a narrow foramen of Monro – in both children and adults, the prepontine cistern can be directly examined through the ventriculostomas
  • The endoscope features an irrigation and suction channel as well as a working channel which can be used with a range of 1.3 mm instruments for performing ventriculostomies, septostomies, tumor biopsies and cyst fenestration
  • The 1.2 mm rod lens telescope provides excellent image quality

LOTTA System for Intracranial Neurosurgery

Special Features:

  • Two unique ventriculoscopes – sheath diameter 4.5 mm and 6.8 mm – for the entire range of endoscopic intracranial procedures
  • 6° angle of view for direct visual control of instruments after exiting the working channel
  • Perfectly coordinated instrument sets for LOTTA® and Little LOTTA®
  • A wide range of support features such as, for example, possibility of rotation in the sheath and instruments with length markings for controlled application

OI HandyPro Pediatric Neuroendoscope

Special Features:

  • Hydrocephalus management, cyst treatment and tumor biopsies
  • Pistol-grip handle design – permits single-handed endoscope guidance while using the other hand for precise instrument control
  • Modular design allows the use of neuronavigation
  • Bipolar and unipolar system-specific instruments

ShuntScope – Endoscopically Assisted Shunt Placement

Special Features:

  • VISUALIZATION: The semirigid fiberscope with a diameter of 1 mm offers good visualization of the anatomy for optimal placement of the ventricular catheter
  • VERSATILITY: The SHUNTSCOPE is compatible with numerous ventricular catheters
  • TRAINING: Physicians can use the SHUNTSCOPE as a training tool for the correct placement of ventricular catheters
  • PRICE-PERFORMANCE RATIO: The SHUNTSCOPE is a reusable telescope without single-use accessories and is an inexpensive solution for assisted shunt placement


Multifunctional High-Speed Motor System for all Indications in Neurosurgery and Spine Surgery

Special Features:

  • Continuously variable high-speed handpieces with up to 100,000 rpm
  • Wide range of specially developed handpieces and shavers for efficient intraoperative applications
  • Clearly arranged menu guidance and rapid program selection thanks to integrated touch screen
  • Easy set-up and fast installation for a smooth OR workflow

Video Neuro-Endoscope for Intracranial Neurosurgery

Special Features:

  • Minimal outer diameter of 2.8 mm with integrated working channel of 1.2 mm
  • Continuously variable 270° deflection (up/down) for intuitive orientation and visualization of the entire ventricular system
  • Excellent image quality thanks to auto focus as well as integrated LED light source – optimal tissue differentiation, even in areas that are difficult to access
  • Video neuro-endoscope is easy to insert and navigate due to high torque stability – direct transmission of hand movements to the distal tip
  • Ergonomic work using only one hand thanks to lightweight handle and integrated LED light source

VITOM 3D – 3D Visualization for Neurosurgery

The VITOM® 3D system provides many surgical disciplines with a revolutionary solution for the visualization of microsurgical and open surgical interventions. Application possibilities are similar to that of the operating microscope. The most important functions are controlled via the IMAGE1 PILOT which is mounted to the OR table in close proximity to the surgeon.

  • Smaller, lighter and more compact than an operating microscope
  • Lower acquisition costs and creates synergistic effects with endoscopy by using the same video tower – thus combining the benefits of endoscopy and microscopy
  • Ergonomic work – the user is not confined to the eyepiece
  • Improved workflow – the OR team can view the procedure in the same image quality as the surgeon
