Helping Patients with Esophageal Cancer in East Africa

Helping Patients with Esophageal Cancer in East Africa

By combining a relentless dedication to developing less-invasive endoscopy technologies with a spirit of collaboration with healthcare professionals, we’re reducing the total cost of patient care and making a meaningful and lasting impact on patients’ lives.

Delivering Meaningful Innovation

Improving Outcomes. The SpyGlass™ DS Direct Visualization System, a single-use, single-operator digital cholangioscope, enables physicians to see high resolution images from inside the biliary, hepatic and pancreatic ducts during ERCP. When used with the SpyBite™ Biopsy Forceps, physicians can take targeted biopsies of strictures to diagnose diseases such as cholangiocarcinoma or pancreatic cancer. When used with EHL or laser lithotripsy, physicians can effectively and efficiently treat pancreaticobiliary stones. We also offer a range of solutions for scope repair, infection prevention, and community wellness.

Less-invasive Treatment Alternatives. The AXIOS™ Stent and Electrocautery Enhanced Delivery System offers an endoscopic alternative for transgastric or transduodenal drainage of symptomatic pancreatic pseudocysts and certain types of walled-off necrosis - two serious complications of pancreatitis.

Providing Services and Solutions. Boston Scientific offers a range of services and solutions that provide specialized support for endoscopy clinicians. We offer a pathology lab focused solely on the diagnosis of GI diseases, scope repair services, and a range of products and solutions for infection prevention in the endoscopy suite.1
