Hybrid basket, grabber provides capture, release of multiple stone sizes
Marlborough, MA—Boston Scientific has announced the U.S. and European launch of the Dakota Nitinol Stone Retrieval Device with OpenSure Handle, a kidney stone retrieval device that enables physicians to release and capture kidney stones ranging in size from 1 to 10 ml. The OpenSure Handle is designed to release a larger stone, while the nitinol hybrid grasper basket allows a physician to capture, reposition, and remove multiple stones and small fragments in the same procedure. The three-arm nitinol hybrid basket is designed to open and close at full deflection to help physicians reach stones in challenging anatomic locations, according to Boston Scientific. The device was launched at the 34th World Congress of Endourology conference in Cape Town, South Africa.
