The True Cost of Reusable Duodenoscopes
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.
Watch our video series where Dr. Juan Tejada discusses why his facility fully converted to the single-use Ambu aScope Duodeno. Among the many reasons are the single-use duodenoscope’s ability to prevent complications related to cross-contamination, reprocessing, and supply.
View published peer-reviewed studies on contaminated duodenoscopes infectious outbreaks, clinical performance and health economics in our comprehensive Evidence Dossier. All studies support claims related to the Ambu aScope Duodeno.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) approved a New Technology Add-on Payment (NTAP) for the Ambu aScope Duodeno. CMS provides hospitals with additional device reimbursement when the aScope Duodeno is used for eligible cases in the hospital inpatient setting.
