PENTAX UK launches new HD enteroscope


VSB-2990i enables detection, demarcation and characterisation of the small bowel

PENTAX UK has developed a new high-resolution enteroscope for detailed visualisation of the small intestine.

The VSB-2990i enteroscope enables the detection, demarcation and characterisation of the small bowel, which can vastly improve the visibility of minute lesions.

It can be applied to push and balloon-guided enteroscopy and is compatible with NaviAid BGE balloon disposables. The 2.8mm instrument channel offers compatibility with a wide range of instruments and enables biopsies and options for further therapeutic interventions. With a 90i control body, the enteroscope has good handling characteristics and exceptional reach, combining unique graduated flexibility with a working length of 2,200mm. The HD+ resolution imaging can be further combined with the PENTAX i-scan image processing technology to further support detection and characterisation of tissue abnormalities. For example, recent research has demonstrated that with i-scan clinicians can experience an increase in overall polyp and adenoma detection rates.

“Here at PENTAX we like to challenge the limits of medical technology,” said David Moore, managing director of PENTAX UK. “Although historically the small bowel has been a very difficult area to examine, we have designed the VSB-2990i enteroscope to provide unparalleled HD+ imaging, alongside exceptional reach, to take the detection and characterisation of tissues abnormalities of the small intestine to another diagnostic level.”
