Direct Visualization System
An Expanding Suite of Compatible Accessories and Applications
- Approximately 10-15% of biliary stone cases are considered difficult and cannot be treated effectively using standard ERCP techniques.2
- Direct visualization stone clearance using EHL has been shown to be clinically effective with demonstrated procedural success, with single-session stone clearance rates of 74.5%1.
- The SpyGlass Retrieval Basket can be used to capture and remove residual biliary and pancreatic stones and stone fragments visualized with the SpyGlass DS System.
- Achieving single session stone clearance and reducing the need for a repeat procedure(s) may deliver greater patient satisfaction and decrease unnecessary procedural costs.
- Performing biopsies under direct visualization using the SpyGlass DS System and SpyBite™ Biopsy Forceps (86% sensitivity)3 may enable faster, more accurate diagnosis of malignancies compared to brush cytology (45% sensitivity)4.
- In a prospective study of 289 patients, diagnostic ERCP with cholangioscopy altered patient management in 85% of patients and had high procedural success and high accuracy in helping to diagnose indeterminate strictures.5
- The new SpyGlass Retrieval Snare is designed to enable efficient capture and removal of foreign bodies in the biliary and pancreatic ducts, such as migrated plastic stents, during an ERCP procedure.
