Olympus America Inc. introduced a new surgical imaging platform, VISERA ELITE, and a new 5mm HD deflectable videolaparoscope, the ENDOEYE FLEX 5. 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.
