Papillotomy with ENDO CUT® I
- Cholelitiasis with biliary obstruction (gallstones with bile duct blockage)
- Benign papillary stenoses
- Narrowing of the minor duodenal papilla with pancreas divisum

ENDO CUT I - cutting stage during papillotomy procedure
When cutting with a papillotome, small arcs ( yellow) are created between the cutting wire of the papillotome and the tissue. In the cutting mode ENDO CUT I, the cutting stage is automatically regulated through the recognition of spark formation.
ENDO CUT I - coagulation during cutting in a papillotomy procedure
The coagulation cycle prepares the tissue for the next cutting cycle to ensure various levels of hemostasis prior to any subsequent cut. The intensity of the coagulation, the so-called coagulation effect, can be modified with ENDO CUT I using four different settings.
