[VIDEO] Dr. Todd Baron Assesses the aScope Duodeno for ERCP

Dr. Baron is a therapeutic endoscopist who has performed more than 20,000 endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) procedures. He offers a clinician’s assessment of Ambu’s new fully disposable aScope Duodeno, from its functionality to its impact on patient safety, productivity and capital investment.

Sterile. Single-use. Problem solved.

Sterile straight from the pack, the Ambu® aScope™ Duodeno is a fully disposable, single-use duodenoscope for ERCP procedures. Based on the latest conventional duodenoscopes, the aScope Duodeno is familiar in form and function, delivering reliable performance for you.

At Ambu, we take pride in specializing in manufacturing of single-use endoscopes. In fact, our single-use endoscopes are used in more than 3,800 hospitals every year. And we’re excited to now bring our expertise and know-how to endoscopists in gastroenterology.

Duodeno Clinical Trial

With the launch of the aScope Duodeno, we’re bringing more than a decade of single-use endoscopy expertise to the GI Suite. This also marks the start of the largest clinical trial in Ambu’s history — a study that will include more than 500 patients at 9 institutions with 16 hospitals participating. The aScope Duodeno’s performance will be assessed by 20 physicians serving as principal or sub-investigators. Our clinical findings will be published in a white paper upon completion. 



Finally address concerns about patient cross-contamination.

For decades, interventional endoscopists have used duodenoscopes to perform lifesaving ERCP procedures. There is, however, growing concern that even with the most stringent cleaning procedures, patient cross-contamination can occur with reusable duodenoscopes.

With the aScope Duodeno, you have a brand new sterile, single-use duodenoscope straight from the pack every time, and there is no risk of patient cross-contamination. What’s more, there’s no need for costly reprocessing or repairs.

Dr. Frank Gress
"From a technical point of view, aScope Duodeno hits the mark. I think the future of endoscopy is going to be single-use. We saw this happen with accessory instruments in the late 1990s and early 2000s, converting from reusable devices like snares to single-use devices. Now, I believe endoscopes are the next step in that evolution."

FDA Study
In a study required by the FDA, conventional duodenoscope manufacturers reported more than 1 in 20 reusable duodenoscopes were contaminated with highly concerning organisms. This was despite proper cleaning and adherence to established protocols.
