Synmed introduce the Ovesco FTRD (Full-thickness Resection Device) System
Synmed introduce the Ovesco FTRD (Full-thickness Resection Device) System as the first interventional device for combined full-thickness resection of colonic lesions with closure and cutting of tissue in one integrated procedure.
The new device is an instrument system for endoscopic Full-Thickness Resection (eFTR) and diagnostic tissue acquisition through removal of suitable lesions in the colorectum.
The FTRD® System Set is a novel tool for diagnostic and therapeutic full-thickness resection via the flexible endoscope in the colon and rectum. The technology is based on the well-established OTSC® System, enabling the endoscopist to resect all layers of suitable lesions including serosa.
The design of the FTRD® System ensures that the transaction of the tissue happens only after the defect has been closed completely. At no time will the abdominal cavity and bowel lumen be in contact.
