ERCP Sphincterotome and Extraction Balloon Catheters Gaining Traction

The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) has recommended the endoscopic approach as the first-line treatment option for pancreatic and bile duct stone retrieval. As per ESGE, ERCP techniques are capable of successful treating 80% to 90% of pancreatic and bile duct stones conditions. Such huge demand and effectiveness of ERCP is expected to drive future demand for sphincterotome and extraction balloon catheters.

Cannulating sphincterotomes are preferred over precut sphincterotomes, owing to less post-ERCP complications and high effectiveness in overall stone retrieval treatment. Among the stone extraction catheters, extraction balloon catheters are superior to extraction basket catheters, due to less chances of pancreatitis and easy retrieval of difficult stones.

Other product types such as stents and lithotripsy devices are being preferred only in 10 to 20% cases to remove difficult stones of the pancreatic and common bile duct. Recently, in 2019, Boston Scientific Corporation received U. S. FDA 510 (k) premarket notification for its class II ERCP sphincterotome - Stonetome Stone Removal Device.
