OverStitch™ Endoscopic Suturing System
The OverStitch™ Endoscopic Suturing System enables advanced endoscopic surgery by allowing physicians to place full-thickness sutures through a flexible endoscope. With this new technology, you can provide secure approximation of tissue endoscopically. The OverStitch™System is enabling a wide range of less invasive solutions for your patients.
OverStitch™ Endoscopic Suturing System Overview
OverStitch™ attaches proximally and distally to an Olympus Dual Channel endoscope allowing for endolumenal suturing in multiple applications. The OverStitch™ handle, mounted to the endoscope control handle, actuates the needle driver attached at the distal end.
An anchor exchange catheter is placed in one scope channel to manage the passing of the suture, while the secondary channel can be utilized to operate the tissue helix for atraumatic tissue manipulation. Once the suturing pattern is completed, a PEEK Cinch is deployed to provide knotless fixation.
