OverStitch

OverStitch™ Endoscopic Suturing System

The OverStitch Endoscopic Suturing System enables advanced endoscopic surgery by allowing physicians to place full-thickness sutures through a flexible endoscope. With this new technology, you can provide secure approximation of tissue endoscopically. The OverStitchSystem is enabling a wide range of less invasive solutions for your patients.

OverStitch™ Endoscopic Suturing System Overview

OverStitch attaches proximally and distally to an Olympus Dual Channel endoscope allowing for endolumenal suturing in multiple applications. The OverStitch handle, mounted to the endoscope control handle, actuates the needle driver attached at the distal end.

An anchor exchange catheter is placed in one scope channel to manage the passing of the suture, while the secondary channel can be utilized to operate the tissue helix for atraumatic tissue manipulation. Once the suturing pattern is completed, a PEEK Cinch is deployed to provide knotless fixation.

OVESCO Clips

Over The Scope Clipping technology systems have been designed for application via flexible endoscopes in order to provide superior efficiency for clinicians. The OTSC® system consists of an applicator cap, a preloaded clip and a hand wheel. OTSC® technology offers three unique features to users:

  • Larger volume of tissue secured
  • Higher stability at the lesion
  • Minimal strain of surrounding tissue

The OTSC® clip is a super elastic, biocompatible Nitinol® clip which compresses the tissue between its teeth. There are three different versions of the clip available, all with purpose designed teeth. There are three sizes adapted to the cap sizes (11, 12, 14) mm

  • Type A – the atraumatic version with blunt teeth for tissue compression in easily mobilised tissue
  • Type T – the traumatic version with pointed teeth featuring increased anchoring capabilities in fibrotic tissueOTSC Clips
  • Type GC – the gastric closure clip has larger teeth for closing gastric perforations and stomach lesions

HaemoCer PLUS

HaemoCer™ PLUS Absorbable Polysaccharide Haemostat (APH) is a proprietary patent pending technology created via BioCers Polysacchidaride Ultra-hydrophilic Resorbable Engineering (PURE) process.

HaemoCer™ PLUS APH incorporates a sophisticated, plant-based polymer crosslinking that creates ultra-hydrophilic, biocompatible particles. Upon contact with blood HaemoCer™ PLUS enhances the natural clotting cascade by rapidly dehydrating the blood and accelerating the concentration of platelets, red blood cells and coagulation proteins at the bleeding site. HaemoCer™ PLUS also on blood interaction rapidly produces a gelled matrix that adheres to and forms a mechanical barrier with the bleeding tissue.

 

HaemoCer™ PLUS APH exhibits all the key features required by surgical professionals, namely:HAEMOCER PLUS BOX

Natural:

  • Plant based
  • Contains no animal or human components
  • Normally complete resorption

Safe:

  • Rapid resorption minimizes risks of foreign body reaction and granuloma formation
  • Reduction of homologous transfusions and blood donations
  • Support and product training

Effective:

  • Double enhanced absorption capacity
  • Compact packaging reducing storage volume
  • Rapid off-the-shelf deployment, no special storage or defrosting needed

EndoRings

ENDORINGS

 

 

The EndoRings™ Distal Attachment is an endoscopic add-on device made from silicone, a flexible polymer. EndoRings™ is designed to fit a variety of endoscopes. The EndoRings™ Distal Attachment has a short tube-like core with several layers of flexible circular rings. EndoRings™ device is provided sterile and for single use only.

 

When advancing a scope into the colon, the EndoRings™ Distal Attachment provides only negligible resistance as the EndoRings™ circular rings easily fold backwards to open the colon. During scope withdrawal and colon screening, the rings centre the scope and smooth the colon folds, enhancing the scope’s field of view, and improving visualisation and screening.
