The device is designed for better management of necrotizing pancreatitis for endoscopic transmural necrosectomy by improving the suction of necrotic tissue and pancreatic blood fluids.
Piranha LC suctions necrotic tissue and pancreatic blood fluids in the catheter to leave a clear visualization for a gastroenterologist. The closed system design avoids the need for scope suction and its ease of use allows for quick and intuitive procedures. It features a design that uses wall suction and a Teflon coated catheter to maximize necrotic tissue and pancreatic blood fluid removal.
“The Piranha LC is a great tool that gastroenterologists can use to clear areas of necrosis and infection and can also be used to clear blood and blood clots. The device is a closed system which will help reduce risks for the physicians and staff,” inventor of the device Robert Ganz said in a news release. “It should be of great benefit in patient care.”
GI Supply Will provide national sales and marketing support on the behalf of the Piranha Aspiration Catheter in partnership with Biomerics.
