Knives, Surgical, Urinary Tract, Ureter, Endoscopic
Definition : Urinary tract surgical knives designed to cut the anatomical structures of the upper urinary tract (i.e., ureters) during endoscopic procedures. These knives typically consist of manual handheld instruments with a handle and a long shaft finished in a cutting end at the distal tip. These knives are usually intended for use through the working channels of urinary tract ureteroscopes and urinary tract endoscopes. Endoscopic ureter surgery knives are used in a variety of endoscopic minimal-access surgical procedures performed in the upper urinary tract (e.g., the treatment of strictures and resection of tumors).
