Clinical evaluation of a single-use duodenoscope for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography

In a consecutive case series testing the feasibility, preliminary safety, and performance of a single-use duodenoscope, 60 ERCPs of all four ASGE complexity levels were completed across six sites in the United States for indications including pancreaticobiliary stone clearance, stent placement, exchange and/or removal and balloon dilation.1

 Checkmark, 100%


100% of ERCP procedures were successfully performed

 Checkmark, 96.7%


96.7% of ERCP procedures were completed with EXALT Model D alone and 3.3% with crossover to a reusable duodenoscope

 Checkmark, 9/10


The median overall physician satisfaction for the EXALT Model D Single-Use duodenoscope scope by physicians was 9 out of 10

“We decided to do a trial, even though it wasn’t mandated by the FDA which is fairly unprecedented. We wanted to reassure physicians that EXALT Model D was not going to compromise the quality of the procedure. We had expert clinicians, who know the nuances of the procedure, confirm that EXALT Model D performed as expected. The feedback we received from clinicians as part of this trial was invaluable.”

Equivalent performance of single-use and reusable duodenoscopes in a randomised trial2

This randomised trial of 98 patients compared the performance of the EXALT Model D Single-Use Duodenoscope with reusable duodenoscopes in patients undergoing ERCP.

  • Overall technical performance and safety profile were similar between the EXALT Model D Single-Use Duodenoscope and reusable duodenoscopes.
  • 46 out of 48 patients were successfully cannulated using the EXALT Model D Single-Use Duodenoscope.
  • Median number of attempts to achieve successful cannulation was significantly lower for the EXALT Model D Single-Use Duodenoscope as compared to reusable duodenoscopes.
