38709 Rigid endotherapy electrosurgical forceps, reusable
A rigid endotherapy device, covered with a sheath of electrical insulation, designed to perform through a
compatible endoscope and to be connected to an electrosurgical diathermy or electrocautery generator to
provide electrical current to: 1) obtain tissue samples for histopathological examination; 2) allow for
coagulation so as to prevent bleeding; 3) destroy the residuum of the lesion being biopsied. It is typically
constructed as a long insulated metal instrument whose distal ends are equipped with scissors-like cups
with a cutting edge around their rim which are operated by scissors-like ring handles at the proximal end.
This is a reusable device.
