Reduce Scope Repair Costs

Innovative devices that help reduce flexible ureteroscope repair costs.

Protect Your Flexible Ureteroscopes

Unlike traditional flat-tip laser fibers, the ball-shape tip of the Flexiva™ TracTip Single-Use Laser Fiber allows the fiber to pass through a fully deflected scope without damaging the ureteroscope liner or optics.1

Use Flexible Ureteroscopes Less Often

Using an antiretropulsion device such as BackStop™ Gel, which has been proven to prevent stone migration, may prevent the need to switch from a rigid ureteroscope to a flexible ureteroscope during a procedure.
