Food and Drug Administration today issued warning letters to all three duodenoscope
manufacturers for failing to comply with requirements of federal law under which they were ordered to conduct postmarket surveillance studies to assess the effectiveness of reprocessing the devices.
with disposable distal cap under the i10 Series of endoscopes
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared the first duodenoscope
with a disposable distal cap, a new feature that will improve access for cleaning and reprocessing.
The necessary working length of the sheath and forceps for hilar billiary biopsy is nearly 1600 mm which includes 1400 mm of working channel in duodenoscope
and 100 mm of both ends respectively.
During the procedure, a second small-caliber cholangioscope is passed through the working channel of the duodenoscope
and advanced into the bile duct over a wire.
Beyond the reprocessing steps discussed in these recommendations, no validated methods for additional duodenoscope
reprocessing currently exist," the guidelines state.
First, in institutional settings there is the prospect of technologies that will reduce the spread of multidrug resistant organisms: examples include more effective hand hygiene; antibiotic coatings that hinder the spread of bacteria or kill them; and the prevention of duodenoscope
The procedure is used to obtain high resolution images that may not be accessible through other endoscopy devices such as Gastroscope, Colonoscope and Duodenoscope
Through side viewing duodenoscope
under endoscopic vision and fluoroscopic guidence biliary stents are positioned.
These included a TJF240/260 duodenoscope
(Olympus, Japan), an APC300/ICC200EA high-frequency generator (Erbe, Tubingen, Germany), needle knife, papillotome, guide wire, catheter, basket, balloon, nasobiliary drainage tube, plastic stent, UMG20-29R ultrasound probe(Olympus, Japan), cell brush, K-ras and P53 gene mutation detection kit and so on.
To prevent the risk of disease transmission during ERCP, the duodenoscope
intricate internal surfaces require special attention and thorough reprocessing.
SEMS were placed under direct vision with a side-viewing duodenoscope
