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.
