Innovations in endoscopy
Pancreatic and biliary: Take a look at our advanced biliary portfolio, including the improved Zilver 635® Biliary Self-Expanding Stent with 10 cm and 12 cm lengths, and the Acrobat® 2 Calibrated Tip Wire Guide, which demonstrates a 35% greater tip flexibility than major competitors.*
Endoscopic ultrasound: Discover the EchoTip ProCore® HD Ultrasound Biopsy 20 gauge needle, designed to help you obtain core biopsies even in the most difficult anatomical positions. Learn more about a recent randomized controlled study which reported a technical success rate of 99% in EUS-FNB cases using the 20 gauge needle.**
Hemostasis: When facing any GI bleed, the more simple and effective treatment options you have, the better your patient outcomes can be. Be sure to try your hand at deploying the Hemospray® Endoscopic Hemostat and the Instinct™ Endoscopic Hemoclip.
