Optimized ESD with HybridKnife
"HybridKnife® is my preferred choice for the en-bloc resection of lesions in the gastrointestinal tract“, is one of the testimonials in the new brochure for gastroenterology. It was given by Prof. Dr. Alessandro Repici, Clinical Director of the Gastroenterology Humanitas University Milan. Numerous international users have made similar statements about the waterjet-supported EMR, ESD, POEM or ablation of Barrett’s esophagus with Erbe hybrid instruments.
The functions hydrosurgery and electrosurgery are integrated in the patented HybridKnife® and HybridAPC and are a unique characteristic.
For example, in an ESD - endoscopic submucosa dissection - the mucosa is lifted with a water jet before resecting the lesion electrosurgically. "The ESD with HybridKnife® is faster and easier compared with conventional ESD, as fewer instrument changes are necessary" is the statement for yet another advantage confirmed in publications.
