The OTSC® System Set
The OTSC® System Set consists of an applicator cap with a mounted OTSC® clip, thread, thread retriever and a hand wheel for clip release.
The OTSC® clip is delivered by means of an applicator cap mounted to the tip of gastroscopes or colonoscopes. The clip is released by tightening the thread with the hand wheel.

Due to its smart material properties, OTSC® clip delivers constant force at the implantation site securing the therapeutic effect. The OTSC® clip is made of a biocompatible and MR conditional material and can remain in the body as a longterm implant.
