In this episode, Dr. Ravi Srinivasa, Dr. Jeff Chick, and our host Dr. Michael Barraza discuss the SpyGlass Direct Visualization System and its benefits for endoscopic procedures.
The doctors begin with a short introduction to previous single-use endoscopes, noting challenges like limited flexibility and incompatibility with existing hospital infrastructure. The SpyGlass overcomes these obstacles by providing on demand irrigation, four-way flexion, recording capabilities, and its own compatible ancillary devices. Dr. Srinivasa describes his use of the Spyglass in targeted biopsies and lithotripsies.
Dr. Chick emphasizes that any IR can easily access and use this device, whether they are in a private, academic, solo, or hybrid practice. The minimal setup and ideal dimensions of the SpyGlass make it adaptable to many parts of the body. Finally, the doctors discuss upcoming educational content from Boston Scientific that will help IRs learn how to use the device and adapt it to their practices.
