Exacto cold snare

Exacto cold snare

The unique snare design offers more control for placement around diminutive polyps and a precise, clean cut.

Supporting the cold snaring technique, the Exacto® cold snare:

  • Enables a clean cut, with a braided snare wire that is 33% thinner than traditional braided wires
  • Features a unique design that is smaller than any available mini snare, providing more control for placement and resection
  • May help reduce polyp "fly away" from the resection site, due to the thinner snare wire diameter

Cold Snaring

US Endoscopy offers an extensive line of polypectomy devices. With growing evidence to support that cold snare polypectomy (CSP) is safe and effective for resection of small colonic polyps, there is an increased demand for cold snare devices. US Endoscopy is proud to offer the Exacto® cold snare, a purpose-built cold endoscopic snare.

Advantages of Cold Snaring

90% of polypectomies are performed on polyps less than 9mm in size. There are various devices available for the removal of diminutive polyps, including hot biopsy forceps, cold biopsy forceps, hot snares, and hot/cold snares. Hot polypectomy techniques have been associated with an increased risk of complications, while a significant body of clinical evidence has established that the cold snare polypectomy technique is frequently superior for removing small colonic polyps.

  • The cold snare technique is safe for removing diminutive polyps up to 9mm
  • Cold snare polypectomy achieves a significantly higher rate of complete resection compared with cold and hot biopsy forceps
  • Cold snare polypectomy reduces the risk of complications caused by electrocautery, such as perforations and other post-polypectomy symptoms
  • Cold snaring is the preferred method for resecting small polyps in anticoagulated patients
  • Cold snare polyp removal reduces procedure time and the need for an electrosurgical unit or generator

4 Reasons to Choose the Exacto® Cold Snare

The Exacto® cold snare has been built specifically for the cold resection of polyps in the gastrointestinal tract. In fact, it’s clinically proven to safely and effectively remove small colonic polyps. Multiple studies show that using the Exacto® cold snare results in a higher complete resection rate compared to traditional braided wire snares.

  • Unique shield shape that is smaller than any other mini snares provides more control for placement and cold snare resection
  • 33% thinner wire diameter than traditional braided wires enables a clean cut and full circumferential resection of polyps
  • Thinner cold snare wire diameter may help reduce polyp "fly away" from the resection site, making it easier to collect specimen for pathology
  • Stiff catheter that helps aid in resection to support accurate positioning

Cold Forceps vs Cold Snare

Many studies have shown there are clinical benefits of using a cold snare versus a cold forceps.

Cold Forceps

Cold forceps biopsy may not provide complete removal of polyps and is associated with higher rates of incomplete resection and residual tissue, even after multiple “bites”.

Cold Snare

Cold snare polypectomy provides a safer and more effective way to resect diminutive polyps in a single piece, with a margin of normal tissue, to ensure complete removal.
