Stryker Laparoscope

Laparoscopy has reached a level where single-incision and robotics are applied during surgery. Surgery with minimally invasive techniques continues to change daily; with computerized designs and microchipped safety features, laparoscopic surgeons are dependent on the equipment, including Stryker camera systems. Surgeons are required to understand the electromechanical function of the instruments. The essential equipment for laparoendoscopic procedures includes a camera, endoscope, light, video monitor, trocars, insufflator, and surgical instruments.

The Stryker laparoscope is an endoscoping video camera that offers documentation of procedures and visualization. It expands the capacity for arthroscopy and other rigid endoscopy procedures. The digital camera features various ranges of analog and digital outputs. A Stryker 30Linsufflator mobile cart and a tube-based or a flat-screen monitor are also included.

The telescope comes in various sizes ranging from 2mm to 12mm. Commonly used in gynecology is the10mm size. It comes with an angle view ranging from 0 to 45. In an Angled-view scope, the direction of vision is away from the light source attachment. The 0 telescope gives a forward view corresponding to the natural approach; it is a favorite for gynecologists. It is handy when there is a less-experienced assistant in surgery. The 30 degrees telescope rotates to enlarge the view field and is beneficial for complicated cases. The 45 degrees telescope is excellent for single incision laparoscopies. The laparoscope engraved number by the eyepiece shows the viewing angle.

Reusable or Disposable High-Definition Endoscopy Camera System

Regarding cost-effectiveness, there is a debate on reusable versus disposable instruments; the choice of devices is multifactorial and depends on reliability, function, and cost. During laparoscopic procedures, several reusable and disposable devices are used. Disposable instruments include scissors and trocars, while reusable instruments include hook and needle drivers, coagulation hooks, and graspers.

Energy Devices

Energy sources include bipolar, monopolar, harmonic, advanced bipolar, combined, and morcellator devices. Monopolar devices are used to incise the vaginal cuff in hysterectomy and endometriosis resection. Various Monopolar spatula and hooks are available, with most scissors having an attachment that connects Monopolar lead.

Bipolar devices have a continuous waveform electrical current found in the forceps’ jaws and reduce the chances of damage to nearby tissue. They achieve hemostasis and tissue sealing through thermal coagulation, though they cannot cut. The surgical evolution of energy devices with advanced bipolar features is critical in the exponential growth of laparoscopic procedures. The devices have gained popularity to the point that they are used in vaginal and open surgery. Bipolar devices provide a low voltage and have impedance-based feedback, which modifies the delivered energy and tissue temperature below 100 degrees.

Harmonic devices have a crystal in their handpiece that changes the electrical energy to ultrasonic energy. The energy is delivered to the blade on the instrument’s tip, causing it to vibrate. The tip then cuts with a degree of collateral thermal coagulation needed for hemostasis. The benefit of harmonic devices is the lower temperature compared to other energy devices. This causes minor charring and reduced thermal spread. The mechanical vibrations in lower density tissue the intercellular water vaporize at low temperature, which helps dissection by separating tissue layers. Even though the harmonic device operates at low temperatures, the active blade heats up and remains hot for a while, and it might hurt the user or the patient.
