This document includes published peer-reviewed studies on contaminated duodenoscopes, infectious outbreaks, clinical performance and health economics. All studies support claims related to the Ambu® aScope™ Duodeno single-use duodenoscope.
Multiple published studies provide evidence that gastrointestinal endoscopes can be contaminated even after proper reprocessing and that highly contaminated endoscopes increase the risk of patient-to-patient infections. We present data from the literature illustrating that the problem is also present in Europe, thus increased focus and transition to innovative technologies and designs is recommended.
A 1-page summary of the studies to date demonstrating the evidence of persistent bacterial contamination on clean duodenoscopes
More healthcare-associated infections are related to contaminated endoscopes than to any other medical device. Despite the availability of international, national and local endoscope reprocessing guidelines, contamination and transmission of microorganisms continue to occur. Besides, the rise of multidrug-resistant organisms is linked to increasing numbers of duodenoscope related infection outbreaks, resulting in a substantial financial burden to healthcare systems across the world.
