With the healthcare system facing cost pressures from all sides, Cook Medical knows that creating products that solve clinical problems is only half the battle. We need to be innovative by designing products that help you reduce costs. As a result, many of our recent stone management solutions are designed to meet your clinical and economic needs.
The Flexor® Parallel™ Rapid Release™ Ureteral Access Sheath alters the way in which you achieve and maintain access. Insert the sheath using either the Rapid Release technique, which eliminates the need for a second wire, or the traditional Flexor placement method. Either way, the sheath gives you protected access for your endoscope and other instrumentation.
The NGage® Nitinol Stone Extractor is not just a grasper or stone basket, it’s a combination of the two. This two-in-one device’s patented design enables you to engage, reposition, release, or extract stones in the kidney or the ureter. And as a part of our unprecedented lineup of nitinol extractors, we give you options to fit your preference.
In our expanding capital equipment offering you’ll find the cordless StoneBreaker® Pneumatic Lithotripter. It is designed for ease of use and efficiency in treating stones, it requires fewer shocks to fragment stones, and it reduces retropulsion.1 And with no strings attached (no foot pedals, power cords, consoles, or external gas supplies are required), you can take this lithotripter wherever you need it.
Our innovation isn’t limited to ureteroscopy and PCNL. We’re pioneering in other urological applications as well in order to help you cut costs and achieve better patient outcomes. So, whatever you’re up against in the urinary tract, look to Cook to help you save.
