Biliary metal stent placement along with Habib™ EndoHPB RF ablation may provide prolonged stent patency1.
Habib™ EndoHPB Catheter and Adaptor is compatible with most electrosurgical generators and potentially eliminates additional capital investment.
Use of the SpyGlass™ DS System for direct visualization before or after ablation with the Habib™ EndoHPB Catheter aid in targeted ablation of the lesion and decompression of biliary ducts and help to confirm efficacy of ablation size and location.

The Habib™ EndoHPB Catheter is the first Radio Frequency (RF) ablation catheter indicated in the U.S. for malignant or benign tissue ablation in the pancreatic and biliary tract.

When surgery is not an option for patients with difficult-to-treat cancers, the Habib™ EndoHPB Catheter enables you to perform:
• Partial or complete ablation of malignant or benign tissue in the pancreatic and biliary tracts.
• Endoscopic biliary drainage or decompression prior to stent placement or afterwards to clear an occluded stent.

Endoscopic biliary RF ablation with the Habib™ EndoHPB Catheter prior to stent placement has been shown to prolong metallic biliary stent patency by an average of 13% (from 8.4 months to 9.5 months)1

Product Details

Device Specification  Intended Benefits 
180cm useable length, 8Fr (2.7mm) diameter Enables biliary access through a 3.2mm working channel duodenoscope
2, 8mm stainless steel ring electrodes Produce ablation depths 3-4mm from the wall of the catheter. Resulting ablation zone is 25mm ± 3mm long by 9mm ± 2mm wide (1)
Compatible with commonly available RF generators and endoscopes with a working channel of 3.2mm or greater Does not require the purchase of dedicated capital equipment
Bipolar RF Device Use of adapter cable enable bipolar RF ablation and avoids the need for electrode grounding pads

Features and Benefits

  • Treatment alternative that may prolong patency and restore biliary drainage1
  • The Habib EndoHPB Catheter may provide an option to restore biliary drainage in patients who may outlive the patency of their metallic biliary stents.2
  • Clinical data from one study suggests that RFA with the Habib EndoHPB Catheter for occluded SEMS may improve mean stent patency time compared to plastic stent insertion.2

Minimal Capital Investment

The Habib™ EndoHPB Catheter is compatible with many commonly available electrosurgical generators and endoscopes with a working channel of 3.2mm or greater, eliminating the unique capital expenditure. There is also no need for electrode grounding pads when using our adaptor cable.
