Slater Endoscopy's Monopolar Ensizor Endoscopic Scissors received FDA approval.
Here's what you should know:
1. The scissors have both cauterizing and rotational functionality.
2. Slater Endoscopy designed them to cut and dissect tissue, cauterize tissue, cut sutures and cut non-metallic materials during endoscopic procedures.
3. The scissors can be used with any endoscope with a 2.8mm or larger working channel.
4. Slater Endoscopy released the Ensizor non-cautery scissors in October 2015. The newly approved scissors are the first to cut tissue and sutures.
5. Slater Endoscopy CEO and President Charles Slater said, "With advances in endoscopic procedures emerging as a leading option to treat multiple GI conditions, the launch of the Ensizor monopolar scissors comes at a particularly critical time. Ensizor scissors can be used in a significant number of existing procedures from the management of obtrusive ulcer generating non-absorbable suture tails and free loops, to cutting gastrointestinal tissues as part of the surgical procedure itself.
