Nitinol retrieval baskets are used during an endoscopic procedure to grip, guide and remove stones. They are mainly used in urology but can also be made for the application in otorhinolaryngology and ophthalmology.
In Urology, we offer different types of Nitinol retrieval baskets for endourological stone therapy. While baskets with tip are used in the ureter with rigid or semi-rigid endoscopes, baskets without a tip are used in the flexible ureterorenoscope for the extraction of kidney stones directly in the kidney. Baskets with an open-ended structure facilitate the user’s work whenever stones are difficult to grasp. Various user-friendly French/Charrière sizes (FR/CH) are available.
The retrieval baskets are individually packed (sterile) or packed in larger bundles (non-sterile), depending on the customer’s requirements. Our sterile retrieval baskets are CE- certified for urology applications.
Many years of experience and competence in development and producing these systems have enabled ENDOSMART® to place several patents for these product lines.
