Use of the FTRD® Marking Probe
Instrument for marking tissue using superficial HF-coagulation in flexible endoscopy.
The FTRD® Marking Probe
The FTRD® Marking Probe is used before endoscopic full-thickness resection with the FTRD®. The FTRD® Marking Probe is a HF-coagulation probe specially developed for the FTRD®. Using this probe, the target lesion is marked prior to FTRD® use. Marking the lesion will facilitate both detection and complete resection of the target tissue.
The FTRD® Marking Probe is included in each FTRD® Set.
