A Gastro Health-Alabama affiliate in Birmingham, is using Ambu’s single-use duodenoscope, the platform announced Feb. 10.
Gastro Health is using the duodenoscope for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography procedures. Kenneth Sigman, MD, believes he is the first physician in the state to use the single-use device.
The FDA approved Ambu’s single-use device in July 2020.
Single-use duodenoscopes are gaining popularity due to contamination issues common with reusable duodenoscopes.
