Take a Closer Look at Blue Light
Cystoscopy Technology

Explore in-depth resources on Blue Light Cystoscopy with Cysview® (BLC™ with Cysview®), the KARL STORZ D-Light C Photodynamic Diagnostic (PDD) system and more.

BLC with Cysview Resources

KARL STORZ

Cysview is used with the KARL STORZ D-Light C Photodynamic Diagnostic (PDD) system to perform cystoscopy with the blue light setting (Mode 2) as an adjunct to the white light setting (Mode 1).16 Cysview is the only FDA-approved imaging agent for use with blue light cystoscopy.

 Watch the video below to learn more about the PDD system and this innovative technology.

 

VA Standard Operating
Procedure (VA SOP)

If you provide care at a VA facility, please download the VA SOP guidelines and step-by-step instructions for the reconstitution and instillation of Cysview.

Prescribing Information

Cysview is an optical imaging agent indicated for use in the cystoscopic detection of carcinoma of the bladder, including carcinoma in situ (CIS), among patients suspected or known to have lesion(s) on the basis of a prior cystoscopy, or in patients undergoing surveillance cystoscopy for carcinoma of the bladder. Cysview is used with the KARL STORZ D-Light C Photodynamic Diagnostic (PDD) system to perform Blue Light Cystoscopy (BLCTM) as an adjunct to the white light cystoscopy.

Important Safety Information About Cysview® (hexaminolevulinate HCl)

Cysview is not a replacement for random bladder biopsies or other procedures used in the detection of bladder cancer. 

Anaphylactoid shock, hypersensitivity reactions, bladder pain, cystitis, and abnormal urinalysis have been reported after administration of Cysview. The most common adverse reactions seen in clinical trials were bladder spasm, dysuria, hematuria, and bladder pain. 

Cysview should not be used in patients with porphyria, gross hematuria, or with known hypersensitivity to hexaminolevulinate or any derivative of aminolevulinic acid. Cysview may fail to detect some malignant lesions. False-positive fluorescence may occur due to inflammation, cystoscopic trauma, scar tissue, previous bladder biopsy and recent BCG therapy or intravesical chemotherapy. No specific drug interaction studies have been performed. 

Safety and effectiveness have not been established in pediatric patients. There are no available data on Cysview use in pregnant women. Adequate reproductive and developmental toxicity studies in animals have not been performed. Systemic absorption following administration of Cysview is expected to be minimal. There are no data on the presence of hexaminolevulinate in human or animal milk, the effects on a breastfed infant, or the effects on milk production. The development and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother’s clinical need for Cysview and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed infant from Cysview or from the underlying maternal condition. 

Cysview is approved for use with the KARL STORZ D-Light C Photodynamic Diagnostic (PDD) system. For system set up and general information for the safe use of the PDD system, please refer to the KARL STORZ instruction manuals for each of the components. 

Prior to Cysview administration, read the Full Prescribing Information and follow the preparation and reconstitution instructions.
