RX Biliary System™

The Benefits of Physician-Controlled Wireguided Cannulation

Physician-controlled wireguided cannulation (WGC) facilitates deep biliary duct cannulation without the standard contrast-assisted cannulation technique.

Designed to facilitate access and control during endoscopic retrograde colangiopancreatography (ERCP), the RX Biliary System:

  • Puts the physician in control of the guidewire.
  • Secures the guidewire to maintain access during exchanges.
  • Provides a tactile feel while manipulating the guidewire.

"I’ve been practicing ERCP for 20 plus years so the less fluoro time the better. That’s a concern for everybody in the room. The less radiation exposure for staff and patients the better it is."

"RX really does improve your time of cannulation. We used to intubate patients for ERCP. Now the majority of my cases in otherwise healthy patients are done under conscious sedation. You’ve just reduced an operating-room level procedure to a routine endoscopy. Recovery time is shorter and patients don’t complain of a sore throat."

– Niraj Jani, M.D., Chief division of Gastroenterology
