Foreign Body Removal Devices

The management of ingested foreign bodies and food boluses is a common clinical situation in which endoscopic foreign body removal or surgical intervention is suggested. Oftentimes, long or oddly shaped objects and sharp items risk perforation in the esophagus, while food impactions can cause obstruction of the esophagus and require urgent intervention. A variety of foreign object ingestion devices and techniques are indicated for different situations. STERIS is dedicated to assisting your staff in foreign body management by delivering removal devices to prepare you for emergency retrieval cases. From ROTH NET™ Retrievers and the GUARDUS™ Overtube to the RAPTOR™ Grasping Device, you can rely on our selection of foreign body removal devices for security and peace of mind.
