Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) are normally performed for removing polyps and early tumorous in the digestive tract. LeoMed is aim to develop full range EMR/ESD accessories, such as polypectomy snares(hot), hybrid polypectomy snares(hot & cold), endoscopic injection needle (with & without metal tip), which are already launched in the specific market, as well as ESD knife which is under developing.
LeoMed also spends lot of energy on innovative products, to name a few, ligation device, snare probe (ALL IN ONE) and so on.
APPLICATION OF EMR/ESD ACCESSORIES
l ACCESSORIES NEEDED FOR EMR OPERATION INCLUDE INJECTION NEEDLE, POLYPECTOMY SNARES, AND LIGATION DEVICE (IF APPLICABLE)
l SINGLE-USE SNARE PROBE COULD BE USED FOR BOTH EMR AND ESD OPERATIONS, IT ALSO NAMES ALL-IN-ONE DUE TO ITS HYBIRD FUNCTIONS.
l LIGATION DEVICE COULD ASSIST POLYP LIGATE, ALSO USED FOR PURSE-STRING-SUTURE UNDER ENDOSCOPE.
FAQs of EMR/ESD Accessories
What are EMR and ESD?
EMR stands for endoscopic mucosal resection, is an outpatient minimally invasive procedure for removing of cancerous or other abnormal lesions found in the digestive tract.
ESD stands for endoscopic submucosal dissection, is an outpatient minimally invasive procedure using endoscopy to remove deep tumors from gastrointestinal tract.
EMR or ESD, how to determine?
EMR should be the first choice for the below situation:
l superficial lesion in Barrett’s esophagus;
l small gastric lesion <10mm, IIa, difficult position for ESD;
l duodenal lesion;
l colorectal non-granular/non-depressed <20mm or granular lesion.
ESD should be the top choice for:
l squamous cell carcinoma (early) of the esophagus;
l early gastric carcinoma;
l colorectal (non-granular/depressed >20mm) lesion.
