Polypectomy and Tissue Acquisition Devices

Polypectomy procedures are conducted by gastroenterologists as well as colorectal surgeons and are typically minimally invasive procedures used to remove polyps from inside the colon. Endoscopic tissue acquisition is commonly performed with polypectomy devices such as snares, retrieval nets, and polyp traps. STERIS offers an extensive and unique line of endoscopic tissue acquisition and polypectomy devices including snares and ROTH NET™ Retrievers. From the dynamic COINTIP™ Snare supporting hot and cold cutting capabilities to our clinically proven EXACTO™ Cold Snare, we offer a product solution to accommodate various needs.
