First clinical study with EndoDrill® published
B!BBInstruments completed a clinical pilot study in 2015 including 10 patients examined with the EndoDrill® instrument. The aim was proof-of-concept to see if the method could deliver diagnostic material in patients with submucosal tumors. The EndoDrill® instrument resulted in larger total size biopsies and larger submucosal part of the biopsies than conventional forceps.
The study is peer- reviewed and published in the scientific journal, Surgical Innovation, ”A New Method for Endoscopic Sampling of Submucosal Tissue in the Gastrointestinal Tract”
