The new Member of the iLESSYS® Family
The iLESSYS® method is an endoscopic minimally invasive surgical procedure, which uses the interlaminar access path to remove disc herniation or treat stenosis. With the new iLESSYS® Pro instrument set, joimax® expands its iLESSYS® system family for the interlaminar endoscopic access. The endoscope and all instruments for access and resection have been optimized for decompression within the spinal channel in collaboration with Dr. Christoph Hofstetter. The new set exhibits excellent properties especially for ipsi- and contralateral intraspinal bony decompression and deherniation. Another focus of development was the aspect of surgical efficiency, streamlining of the procedure and improvement of ergonomics.
Perfect for intraspinal, ipsi- and contralateral decompression and deherniation
The working channel of iLESSYS® Pro LaminoscopeTM is 4.7 mm. This allows the use of large punches, forceps and shaver blades for effective removal of hard tissue like bone or hypertrophic, sclerotized ligamentum flavum. At the same time, the endoscope is still „small enough“ to be perfectly suited for working within the spinal canal. The working length of 150 mm and the 15° direction of view makes it excellent for contralateral procedures without any compromises for optimal ipsilateral application. Due to irrigation in endoscopic procedures the visualization is constantly optimized and not comprimized by bleeding. The instrument set and scope is ideal for treatment of osseous stenosis and disc herniations.
