Cook Medical has developed a tool that helps urologists diagnose tumours in patients with suspicious urethral or kidney lesions.
The BIGopsy Backloading Biopsy Forceps is used to obtain renal or urethral tissue specimens up to 4mm3 for cancer diagnosis.
Larger samples are thought to provide more conclusive results and help produce biopsy results without the need for repeat tissue-sampling procedures.
The device was designed in collaboration with practicing endourologists.
The device has a removable, replaceable handle allowing it to be backloaded through the working channel of an endoscope to accommodate the 4mm3 cup size.
The BIGopsy also includes a small working shaft that improves flow, which can help the urologist’s field of vision.
