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 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 to accommodate various needs.

Polypectomy Snares

  • Reduces polyp “fly away” from the resection site, making it possible to collect specimens for pathology
CoinTip Snare
  • Features a thin distal tip for precise hot and cold polyp removal capabilities
  • Double catheter supports force transfer during tissue resection
  • Offers three shapes (deltoid, hexagonal, and diamond) and multiple size options (20mm, 10mm, and 6mm in width) to resect various types and sizes of polyps
Lariat Snare
  • Features three distinct shapes and snare loop sizes reducing the need to exchange snares
