Auxiliary instruments: The diagnostic devices can be used for the process of disinfecting, cleaning, or sterilizing. They are used for the purposes of diagnosis and therapy to look deep in the body by the way of opening such as anus and mouth. This process is known as endoscopy. It may include insertion tubes, illuminated optical, typically slender, and tubular instruments. Fiberoptic Endoscopic Examinations may allow direct visualization of the body system which can’t be accomplished by other means, with the help of light around corners, twists, and bends.
Endoscopic Devices or endoscopic accessories may include rat-tooth forceps, biliary dilatation balloon, Cook Endoscopy, and polypectomy snare, etc. Endoscopes use only a few millimeters thick tubes that transfer illumination and high-resolution images side by side. For non-medical purposes instruments that are used are called borescopes. Electronic borescopes are widely advertised as endoscopes. There are different types of endoscopic instruments that perform different tasks. For example, Encephaloscope which looks into to brain, Laryngoscope, Esophagoscope, and Angioscope, etc. are some of its types.
Usage of therapeutic endoscopy:
l The therapeutic endoscopy devices allow to diagnose and treat neoplastic lesions but also other chronic diseases such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and obesity. l Radiofrequency ablation, Transoral incisionless fundoplication Obesity, and another chronic disease can be treated by the usage of these auxiliary instruments.
- Endoscopic techniques can include biopsy, sclerotherapy, foreign body retrieval, visualization.
- These instruments assist the surgeon to look deep into the hollow organs that cause troubles.
