Endofresh, empowering endoscopists around the world. Disposable endoscopes are shipped aseptically and do not require decontamination, making them more hygienic. It can reduce patient waiting time, shorten diagnosis and treatment time, and improve diagnosis and treatment efficiency. It is an effective supplement to traditional endoscopy.

110 patients were randomly assigned to the group. The success rate for capturing images of customary anatomic sites was 100% in both groups. The average imaging quality score was significantly lower (37.02 ± 3.09 vs 39.47± 1.92, P < .001) and the operating time significantly longer (P < .001) in the disposable gastroscope group. No significant differences in maneuverability, gastroscopy completion rate, device failure/defect rate, operating time, or safety were found between the 2 groups.

This was a prospective, single-center, noncomparative study. Disposable EGD was used for emergency, bedside, and intraoperative endoscopies in 30 patients. The technical success rate was 100%. The mean image quality score obtained immediately after procedure completion was 3.72 ± 0.56. The mean procedure time was 7.4 ± 7.6min. There were no device malfunctions or failures, device-related adverse events, or overall adverse events.
