Hysteroscopic evaluation of the endometrium with biopsy can be performed using different graspers whose terminal ends have specific features. This technical note aims to describe an innovative hysteroscopic grasper, the biopsy snake grasper sec. VITALE (Centrel S.r.l., Ponte San Nicol o, Padua, Italy), which can be used to grasp and cut at the same time. The characteristic features of this grasper are as follows: a sleeve with an opening along the whole width, a flat pointed tip with serrated edges fixed to its end by a U-shaped joint, and 2 sharp-edged jaws that completely encompass the tip when they are clenched. The biopsy snake grasper sec. VITALE, therefore, aims to be a useful innovative tool. It is a robust, easy-to-use instrument compatible with all modern hysteroscopes equipped with a 1.67-mm (5 French) working channel.

Abstract

Hysteroscopic evaluation of the endometrium with biopsy can be performed using different graspers whose terminal ends have specific features. This technical note aims to describe an innovative hysteroscopic grasper, the biopsy snake grasper sec. VITALE (Centrel S.r.l., Ponte San Nicol o, Padua, Italy), which can be used to grasp and cut at the same time. The characteristic features of this grasper are as follows: a sleeve with an opening along the whole width, a flat pointed tip with serrated edges fixed to its end by a U-shaped joint, and 2 sharp-edged jaws that completely encompass the tip when they are clenched. The biopsy snake grasper sec. VITALE, therefore, aims to be a useful innovative tool. It is a robust, easy-to-use instrument compatible with all modern hysteroscopes equipped with a 1.67-mm (5 French) working channel.
