A new dimension in endoscopic grasping: the OTSG Xcavator™
The removal of hard to grasp tissues and foreign bodies from the gastrointestinal tract often represents a challenge in endoscopy. In particular, pancreatic necrosectomy can be frustrating and tedious when using snares, graspers, etc. . Then as an endoscopist, you need a tool for reliable and effective removal of tissue.
The OTSG Xcavator™ now represents a new dimension in endoscopic grasping. The extra-large grasping capacity of the OTSG Xcavator™ allows easy and effective removal of necrotic (pancreatic) tissue, blood clots, food boluses, and foreign bodies. Due to the external control, the working channel remains free for additional suction/irrigation capacity and allows the combination with further instruments (e.g. snares, graspers, etc.).
Professor Meining first presented the instrument at Endoscopy on Air 2020 and Dr. Brand published the first case study in the journal Endoscopy. Just recently, the OTSG Xcavator™ was also demonstrated at Endoskopie Live in Berlin by Professor Faiss, as well as by Dr. Möschler at the congress “Viszeralmedizin NRW”.
