A compact hysteroscope with a slim outer diameter enhances patient's comfort, without sacrificing the physician's visibility or treatment options.

The Richard Wolf compact hysteroscope boasts an outer diameter of only 3.8 mm, but at the same time offers an integrated 1.67 mm straight working channel, which expands the physician's options to include polyp removal, foreign body removal, and even sterilization device implantation; the slimmer profile also means the patient experiences less discomfort during the procedure. Since the compact hysteroscope also features separate inflow and outflow channels, visibility can be maintained, potentially shortening procedure times.

The integrated straight working channel provides maximum protection for instruments and potentially increases the life of semirigid graspers and scissors. The all-in-one design allows for easier setup and reprocessing, while the separate inflow and outflow channels maintain visibility throughout the case, potentially decreasing procedure time. The unique blend of a smaller outer diameter and straight working channel in a one-piece design increases the life of the endoscope and ensures long-term, optimal image quality. The Richard Wolf compact hysteroscope is a product of Richard Wolf Medical Instruments (Vernon Hills, IL, USA).

“We are excited about the launch of this product because it is truly unique,” said Monica Sanders, corporate director of marketing for Richard Wolf. “It has a tiny outer diameter of only 3.8 mm but still maintains a large 5 French working channel. It really is the perfect blend of comfort for the patient and efficiency for the physician.”
