The OTSC (Over-The-Scope Clip) System from Ovesco
The OTSC (Over-The-Scope Clip) System from Ovesco represents a new class of endoscopic clips for the treatment of gastrointestinal hemorrhage and endoscopic digestive organ wall closure, providing significantly more strength and better tissue capture compared to conventional clips delivered through the working channel of the flexible endoscope.
The OTSC System stands for superior efficacy in flexible endoscopy for:
- Acute bleeding
- Full thickness wall closure
- Compression as well as approximation of tissue
- Management of complications after endoscopic or surgical interventions
The OTSC System is a new innovative clipping system to be applied via flexible endoscopes and offers the physician three unique features superior to any other device:
- Larger volume of tissue secured
- Higher stability at the lesion site
- Minimal strain on surrounding tissue
The exceptional features and therapeutic functions of the system are based on its unique material and design: the superelastic Nitinol is biocompatible and, if needed, even suited to be applied as a long term implant.
The use of the OTSC System is intuitive and easy, very similar to other devices based on the application cap principle. It is compatible with all commercially available endoscopes with a variety of different sizes and types available. All OTSC products are disposable and designed for single patient use.
In addition, for precise and easy closure of even larger lesions several application aids are available: the OTSC Anchor and the OTSC Twin Grasper assist you in approximating tissue in treating perforations, fistulae etc.
The OTSC System is contraindicated in oesophageal or fundic varices.
