FDA Clears Video-Based Cystoscopy Line

January 8, 2008 - Vision-Sciences Inc. received FDA 510(k) clearance to market its new advanced digital, video-based flexible Cystoscope, used in conjunction with an integrated "built-in" light source, eliminating the need for a separate camera head, light guide cable and optical coupler.

The Cystoscope is the third in the series of advanced digital endoscopy platforms introduced by Vision-Sciences. The lightweight videoscopes facilitate diagnostic and therapeutic procedures with the introduction a diameter videoscope insertion tube containing a high-resolution, miniature CCD (charge coupled device) camera at the tip of the insertion tube, offering a sharp, high definition full screen image.

The Vision-Science' scopes are used in combination with the company's patented, disposable, sterile Slide-On EndoSheath technology that covers the entire scope. The proprietary EndoSheath technology not only isolates the endoscope from the patient, but contains a disposable operative channel. This prevents instrumentation and patient tissue biopsies from coming in contact with the reusable scope, unlike when passed through the built-in channel of conventional scopes from other manufacturers. The EndoSheath Technology eliminates the need for elaborate high-level disinfection between procedures, leading to rapid equipment turnover, limiting capital investment for additional scope inventory, reducing staff exposure to toxic chemicals, and dramatically lowering repair and maintenance costs.
