Speed dating – experience speed in a new way

In addition to established methods for the treatment of benign prostatic hyerplasia (BPH), new methods are becoming increasingly important in endourology and a trend towards endoscopic enucleation of the prostate (EEP) can be observed in recent years. This is also reflected in the current EAU Guidelines (2018). In the current guidelines EEP is cited as the first choice for treatment of BPH for prostate glands > 80 ml.

Richard Wolf offers the user a variety of products in the field of laser surgery and in the field of HF surgery, so that the endourologist can obtain his complete set of instruments, including a high-power laser, from Richard Wolf, regardless of his preferred surgical technique.


The SHARK resectoscope line has the right instrument for every deployment. As a highly efficient morcellation system the PIRANHA product line completes the package for EEP and guarantees fast and precise morcellation of tissue sections, thanks to a specially developed technology.

Together SHARK and PIRANHA reduce surgical times and provide greater safety for the patient.


With PIRANHA at maximum speed to shorter surgical times

Via the PIRANHA Vmax blade, at a speed of 1500 rpm a cutting capacity can be achieved that is 93 % greater than that of a standard morcellator blade.

Voices and opinions

"Again and again I am impressed with the speed and the safety of the new PIRANHA morcellation system, which is even increased though the new Vmax blades. A morcellator that sets the course: removal of a 120 g prostrate gland in less than 10 minutes makes the enucleation procedure a very fast and competitive method."
