VITOM 3D System Receives Innovative Technology Designation

KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America Inc. has announced that its VITOM 3D system for visualization in microsurgery and open surgical procedures has received a 2017 Innovative Technology designation from Vizient Inc. The designation was based on direct feedback from hospital experts who interacted with the new VITOM 3D system at the Vizient Innovative Technology Exchange in Denver on September 14, 2017.

The VITOM 3D system represents a revolutionary solution for the visualization of microsurgical and open procedures in a range of medical specialties. The compact technology optically magnifies the surgical field, enabling the entire surgical team to directly observe procedures on a 3D monitor. The VITOM 3D system offers a high level of user friendliness owing largely to improved ergonomics. A modular system design helps support efforts to increase efficiency while reducing procedure cost.

With its U.S. release of the VITOM 3D system, KARL STORZ now provides three-dimensional visualization capabilities for performing delicate surgical tasks required for precision surgery. Using the new system, surgeons gain the advantages of enhanced depth perception to better distinguish distances between anatomical structures. Several current Vizient Inc. member hospital organizations were among the first U.S. early adopters of VITOM 3D technology.
