A comprehensive review and analysis of adverse event reports involving flexible endoscopes filed with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration shows a marked increase for six types of scopes from 2014 through 2021. The analysis was undertaken by Dr. Larry Muscarella, president of LFM Healthcare Solutions and an independent safety expert who advises ho…
 
A storm dumped three to five inches of rain in the Detroit metro area one day in June 2021, and a major flood forced a Michigan urology clinic to close. Urologists with Henry Ford Health System were forced to quickly pivot and take all their patients coming in for clinic appointments and procedures and push them to a downtown Detroit campus. Single…
 
A micro-cost analysis published in Urology broke down per-procedural costs for cystoscopy and explored how single-use cystoscopes might provide a cost-effective option for providers. One of the authors of that study, Dr. Yair Lotan, is our guest on the newest episode of Endoscopy Insights and he walks us through his findings. Factors such as capita…
 
Improving workflows to better meet your patients where they are — whether they find themselves in an ICU bed or at a satellite clinic — is something all patients and providers can be happy about. As we learn from two clinicians in this episode, when they have equipment that is portable, easily deployed, and does not require sterilization between us…
 
Dr. Marybeth Spanarkel loved the “immediate gratification” in performing a colonoscopy or upper GI endoscopy and getting an immediate answer to a medical question. Unfortunately, she had to step away from the field after 28 years in private practice in Durham, North Carolina, after a career-ending neck injury that caused sudden paralysis in her rig…
 
Hospitals that perform bronchoscopies can reduce readmission rates by over half, and potentially lower costs, by adopting single-use flexible bronchoscopes. That’s according to a new abstract that was submitted and presented at the recently completed CHEST 2021 annual meeting. The study examined the health outcomes of more than 14,000 patients who …
 
A recent study conducted at Duke University Hospital and published in the Journal of Endourology found that a new single-use cystoscope demonstrated superior flexion and comparable optics to the reusable scopes already being used in a hospital urology department. Dr. Michael Lipkin, a urologist in Durham, North Carolina, and one of the study’s auth…
 
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration revealed in a letter to healthcare providers that it’s investigating numerous medical device reports describing patient infections and other possible contamination issues potentially associated with reprocessed urological endoscopes. Dr. Larry Muscarella delves into more detail on reprocessing best practices an…
 
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is investigating “numerous” medical device reports (MDRs) describing patient infections and other possible contamination issues possibly associated with reprocessed urological endoscopes. Dr. Larry Muscarella, an independent safety expert who advises hospitals, manufacturers and the public about medical device …
 
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently updated a safety communication on reprocessing flexible bronchoscopes. In that update, the FDA recommends, among other things, that healthcare providers consider using single-use bronchoscopes when there is increased risk of spreading infection and when treating COVID-19 patients. To break down this an…
 
What are the challenges, and potential missteps, when it comes to reprocessing bronchoscopes, GI endoscopes and ureteroscopes? How have guidelines and standards evolved? And how has COVID-19 flipped the script when it comes to pursuing evidence-based strategies to eliminate infections related to endoscopes? We explore these questions and more with …
