Percutaneous pyloric knife with knife insert for single use:

  • Optimal cutting every time
  • Integrated ratchet mechanism allows the knife insert to be locked in 8 positions (1.5 mm steps) and extended to the desired length in a controlled manner in order to achieve the required cutting depth.

GEIGER Percutaneous Pyloric Grasper

  • Grasping forceps for stabilizing the pylorus during pyloromyotomy
  • The instrument set for pyloromyotomy also includes various pyloric spreaders and graspers that are suitable for both percutaneous applications and use with a trocar.

E.P.Si.T. – Endoscopic Pilonidal Sinus Treatment

The pilonidal sinus is an acute or chronic inflammatory process in the subcutaneous adipose tissue, often occurring in the sacrococcygeal region1. E.P.Si.T. – Endoscopic Pilonidal Sinus Treatment – proceeds in two phases. In the first – diagnostic – phase, the sinus cavity and the sinus tracts are examined. The aim of the second – therapeutic – phase is to ablate the abscess cavity and to eliminate the fistula2. Both phases are performed under direct endoscopic control.

Special Features:

  • E.P.Si.T. can be performed in an outpatient setting
  • Ablation of the abscess cavity and elimination of the fistula under direct vision
  • High patient satisfaction3
  • Straightforward, safe, effective and reproducible method of treatment3
  • Instruments can also be used to treat anal fistulas (VAAFT technique)
