The first instruments created by Karl Storz in 1945 were for otorhinolaryngology and this field still occupies a prominent position in the company’s product portfolio. Today, approximately 6000 different instruments are on offer, comprising rigid endoscopes in various sizes, flexible fiberscopes and video endoscopes as well as motor systems. An extensive product range for skull base surgery, pituitary gland surgery and otoneurosurgery is also available.
From basic equipment for the ENT practice and outpatient settings to complete sets of endoscopic and surgical instruments through to the high-technology system for video-assisted endoscopy, the medical practitioner receives everything from one source: Perfectly matched endoscopes, instruments and units in excellent quality.

The New TIPCAM®1 S 3D ORL – A Dimension Ahead
The 3D telescope with a diameter of 4 mm
KARL STORZ sets new standards in 3D endoscopy with its brilliant three-dimensional display. As part of the modular camera platform IMAGE1 S, the system can be easily expanded to include 3D.
- Specially suited for convex anatomies and fine structures such as, for example, the sphenoid sinus
- Video endoscope available with 0° and 30° directions of view
- Brilliant, razor-sharp FULL HD images in 2D and 3D
- Easy switchover from 3D to 2D
- Autoclavable for the highest hygiene demands
- Three innovative visualization modes for better tissue differentiation: CLARA, CHROMA and SPECTRA – in 2D and 3D
Sterile Covers for Flexible KARL STORZ Rhino-Pharyngo-Laryngoscopes
For more safety and flexibility in routine use
The sterile covers can be used in endoscopic examinations of the upper respiratory tract, vocal cords, and/or the nasal passages. They protect the flexible endoscopes and feature an innovative vacuum system to ensure that the excellent KARL STORZ image quality is preserved.
- Straightforward leakage testing provides additional patient safety. If the vacuum is still present after the examination, leak-tightness is guaranteed
- The sterile cover does not impair the handling or functionality of the flexible endoscope
- Portability and flexibility are enhanced thanks to the ease of use and disposal of the sterile covers. As a result, videorhino-laryngoscopes are ideally suited for routine use in consultation services, outpatient settings, or at the bedside
à WENGEN Breathe Implant
Titanium implant for improving nasal breathing
- The à WENGEN breathe implant expands the nasal vestibule by spreading the inner nasal valve
- Simplified and standardized procedure for expanding the nasal vestibule in patients with insufficient nasal breathing
- Secure fixation of the implant between triangular cartilage and alar cartilage in an open rhinoplasty procedure
- Six available sizes ensure a correct and secure fit
- To determine the correct implant size, the fit of the titanium implant is measured in situ by placing the sizer onto the cartilage

VITOM® 3D – 3D Visualization for Otorhinolaryngology and Open Surgery
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
Personalized Stapes Instruments with Color Coding
Color is the key!
Particularly in microsurgery performed on the delicate structures in the middle ear, it is important that the correct instrument is passed to the surgeon at all times. However, clear identification of very fine micro instruments is not always possible with the naked eye. The new, customized stapes instruments with color coding now make it easier to pass the correct instrument to the surgeon at the right time. This improves the workflow in the OR and increases efficiency.
Nine colors are available for coding the instrument types. One color can be selected for each instrument and one, two or three color rings can be used to denote instrument sizes. The color red, for example, was selected for 90° ear hooks and sizes 0.1 mm, 0.2 mm and 0.4 mm were denoted with one, two or three color rings on the handle.
