Endoscopy means looking inside and typically refers to looking inside the body for medical reasons using an endoscope, an instrument used to examine the interior of a hollow organ or cavity of the body. Unlike most other medical imaging techniques, endoscopes are inserted directly into the organ. Basically, the trend generating seems to reduce the risk factor by a massive ratio which makes it more effective and persuasive. Nobody would like to get operated if there is an alternative treatment that does not involve incision methodology. In endoscopy, the tools provide a better image of the body from the inside which allows to diagnose the disease.
There are many different types of endoscope, and depending on the site in the body and the type of procedure, endoscopy may be performed by a doctor or a surgeon, and the patient may be fully conscious or anesthetized. Most often the term endoscopy is used to refer to an examination of the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract, known as an esophagogastroduodenoscopy. For non-medical use, similar instruments are called borescopes.
Instruments used in the procedure are a combination of mechanical and electronics integration. The mechanical part represents the front of the instrument, whereas the electronics behind the instrument provide power and control to the instrument.
Endoscopy cables and cable systems can, thanks to the use of biocompatible materials, individual designs or structures with extremely small diameters, contribute to enhancing patient comfort and achieving lasting sterility of flexible endoscopes.
Benefits of Endoscopy Cables
- Durable and sustainable with endoscopy systems that are sterilizable using the most common methods: our cable systems are resistant to chemicals and heat, and are, for example, autoclavable for up to 1,000 cycles.
- Use of biocompatible materials up to USP Class VI and DIN ISO 10993: alongside silicone.
Endoscopy cables are electromagnetically compatible and low noise, highly flexible, tension resistant and have no reset force.
