“The true benefit of the device is that it allowed a rigid cystoscope sheath to be held in position aligned with the ureteral orifice and facilitated placement of the ureteral access sheath when the sheath was previously buckling in the bladder and could not be advanced even over a super stiff wire.”
"I was able to use the cystoscope sheath to access the ureter without dilating and it was easy to get in and out of the ureter"
“With cystoscope sheath in the bladder, the bladder is kept empty, preventing over distention during a longer ureteroscopic case.”
“With a large prostate gland, maintaining the scope sheath in a static position avoids its movement and prevents it rubbing on the bladder neck which can cause troublesome bleeding and obscure vision.”
“During stent placement, I was able to stand further away from the image intensifier and fluoroscopy source, reducing my exposure to radiation.”
“CystoAssist facilitates passage of the stent without an assistant as I could hold the working wire and advance the stent without having to have a hand on the cystoscope sheath.”
