Slim DEC™ Duodenoscope – A Slimmer ERCP Solution
The new Slim DEC™ Duodenoscope ED32-i10 uniquely serves pediatric patients and those with narrow anatomies. Both ERCP solutions deliver a consistent therapeutic performance while ensuring a reduced risk of cross-contamination and outstanding visualisation in an accessible, semi-disposable option.
Disposable Elevator Cap ("DEC™")
The elevator area of a duodenoscope is one of the most difficult components to clean. The development of the disposable elevator cap ("DEC™") design makes hygiene in this area a lot easier by integrating the elevator into the disposable distal end cap of the duodenoscope.
Benefits of the Slim DEC™ Duodenoscope
Consistent Therapeutic Performance
A consistent therapeutic performance is supported by a combination of a narrow insertion tube and a narrow rigid distal width while maintaining a working channel suitably sized to support the delivery of therapeutic intervention.
The Slim DEC™ Duodenoscope delivers outstanding visualisation supported by a combination of HD imaging, a 15° retroflexed view, and a more flexible insertion tube for proper positioning to cannulate during ERCP in narrow anatomies.
Reduced Risk of Cross-Contamination
The Disposable Elevator Cap (DEC™) ensures a reduced risk of cross-contamination through better surface access for cleaning of the distal end, without compromising the therapeutic performance.
