Evidence

In October 2017 The Journal of Endourology published a study assessing the ‘‘body mass index’’ (BMI) (weight and length) of 12 flexible ureteroscopes (digital and fiber optic) along with the light cables and camera heads, to make the best use of our instruments.

The study shows that newer more versatile digital endoscopes were lighter than their traditional fiber optic counterparts in their entirety, with disposable endoscope having a clear advantage over other reusable ureteroscopes.

In September 2017, The Journal of Endourology published micro-costing analysis demonstrates comparable costs for LithoVue versus reusable flexible ureteroscopy use.

In June 2017, The American Journal of Infection Control published a study evaluating the effectiveness of sterilization for flexible ureteroscopes.

In June 2016, The Journal of Endourology published Comparison of New Single-Use Digital Flexible Ureteroscope Versus Nondisposable Fiber Optic and Digital Ureteroscope in a Cadaveric Model.

In October 2015 at the World Congress of Endourology, we presented the LithoVue™ System Single-Use Digital Flexible Ureteroscope. You can access WCE abstracts about LithoVue and other endourology advancements online.
