Articulating HD 3-D Laparoscopic Surgical Video System Improves Speed, Accuracy, Precision of Surgical Procedures
The Olympus Articulating HD 3-D Laparoscopic Surgical Video System delivers value to surgeons and patients by reducing surgical errors and improving the speed, accuracy and precision of surgical tasks such as dissection, grasping and suturing when compared with traditional 2-D surgical systems, based on internal Olympus testing conducted using a simulated surgical model. This is accomplished by restoring natural 3-D vision and depth perception when performing laparoscopic procedures and is independent of a surgeon’s skill level.
Another significant advantage of the new Olympus HD 3-D video platform is its availability as a module that can be easily added to an existing Olympus EVIS EXERA III Universal Imaging System. The modular design reduces the investment necessary to add 3-D capability, and allows the surgeon to choose either 2-D or 3-D visualization from the surgical field. This helps to reduce capital investments and simplify asset management and training.
The video system received FDA 510(k) clearance in April 2013.
