US Endoscopy announces full market release of the iSnare® system – Lariat® snare

Mentor, Ohio — February 14, 2017 — US Endoscopy, a world leader in endoscopy device design and manufacturing, is proud to announce the release of the iSnare® system – Lariat® snare. This new device designed for smaller channel endoscopes, joins the existing iSnare® system product family of unique devices ideal for submucosal injection polypectomy procedures including endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) and saline assisted polypectomy (SAP).

Like the original iSnare® system, this new device features an alternating injection needle and polypectomy snare in one catheter. The iSnare® system – Lariat® snare offers three unique snare sizes and shapes (30mm oval, 10mm hexagonal, and 6mm diamond) to help address a variety of polyp types. The multi-functional design helps minimize wasted procedural time by eliminating device exchange throughout the procedure and enabling immediate snaring to avoid cushion or bleb absorption.

“Many of our Customers are looking for an innovative solution to alleviate difficulties faced during advanced polypectomy cases,” says Tony Siracusa, Vice President and General Manager of US Endoscopy. “The new iSnare® system – Lariat® snare incorporates the technology of our multi-stage Lariat® snare with the dual catheter system of the original iSnare® system – optimizing clinical outcomes and helping to simplify complex polypectomy procedures.”
