Endoscopy is a medical procedure that allows healthcare professionals to view and examine the body's internal organs using a device called an endoscope. This device is a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to its end. For the procedure to be effective and safe, several key accessories are used:
- Biopsy Forceps: Biopsy forceps are essential tools in the endoscopy process. These are used to extract tissue samples from the patient's internal organs for further examination. The samples can provide crucial insights into the patient's health and help identify issues like inflammation, infection, or even cancer.
- Polypectomy Snares: These are critical for the removal of polyps or abnormal tissue during the endoscopy procedure. Polypectomy snares are wire loops that can be controlled to tighten around a polyp, allowing for its removal. This tool is especially important in procedures like colonoscopy where the removal of polyps can help prevent the progression of colon cancer.
- Cleaning Brushes: Maintaining the cleanliness and integrity of the endoscope is vital to patient safety and the effectiveness of the procedure. Cleaning brushes are specially designed tools used to thoroughly clean the endoscope. This ensures that the device is free from biological debris and reduces the risk of infection. One option MFI Medical recommends is the ConMed Reusable Cleaning Brush. This brush features a controllable ring handle and teflon-coated spring sheath designed for multiple uses.
These three accessories play significant roles in conducting endoscopic procedures. They each contribute to different stages of the process, from diagnosing conditions with biopsy forceps, treating conditions with polypectomy snares, to ensuring safety and cleanliness with the cleaning brushes.
