Delivering Meaningful Innovation
Improving Operational Efficiency. Growth in our Endoscopy business is supported by the launch of the next-generation SpyGlass™ DS Direct Visualization System. This single-use, single-operator digital cholangioscope enables physicians to see color images from inside the tiny biliary, hepatic and pancreatic ducts. When used with the SpyBite™ miniature forceps, physicians can take targeted biopsies of strictures to diagnose diseases such as cholangiocarcinoma or pancreatic cancer. When used with EHL or laser fibers, physicians can effectively and efficiently treat bile duct stones and gallstones.
New Treatment Alternatives. The AXIOS™ Stent and Electrocautery Enhanced Delivery System offers a new endoscopic alternative to surgery for transgastric or transduodenal drainage of symptomatic pancreatic pseudocysts and certain types of walled-off necrosis* – two serious complications of pancreatitis. Endoscopic solutions may offer a less invasive treatment option associated with shorter hospital stays, better physical and mental health of patients, as well as lower costs.**
