Vision-Sciences, a developer of endoscopic products, today unveiled its FDA-cleared, video-based endoscopes at the American Academy of Otolaryngology (AAO), Head and Neck Surgery Foundation annual meeting in Washington D.C.
The AAO includes more than 12,000 otolaryngologists, physicians and surgeons from more than 75 countries.
The ear, nose and throat (ENT) and transnasal esophagoscopy (TNE) videoscopes are the first two in the series of digital endoscopy platforms to be launched. The ENT-5000 and TNE-5000 scopes are made with a built-in LED light source, said Vision Sciences.
The Orangeburg, N.Y.-based developer said that the fiberoptic flexible laryngoscopes and esophagoscopes will be promoted at the exhibit session by distribution partner Medtronic ENT, which exclusively sells the ENT EndoSheath product line as well as Vision-Sciences' ENT fiberscopes.
