Use of the Traction Polypectomy Snare

Instrument for flexible endoscopy for grasping and removing tissue in the gastrointestinal tract

The Traction Polypectomy Snare

Ovesco’s Traction Polypectomy Snare is a multifilament, serrated snare for endoscopic tissue acquisition procedures such as polypectomy, endoscopic mucosa resection (EMR) or similar techniques. It is a monopolar high-frequency instrument.

Enhanced effectiveness of snare resection:

  • 30% more tissue capture per resection*
  • Solid grip even on flat adenomas
  • Easy re-positioning thanks to easy opening
  • Reduced number of specimens (less piece-meal)
  • Histo-pathological assessment facilitated
