Abstract

Data supporting the preferential use of disposable endoscopic accessories is limited. These devices have been widely disseminated without careful evaluation of their impact on the environment and medical costs. In addition, current facility reimbursement for endoscopic procedures does not adequately cover the costs of these accessories. Re-use of accessories labelled "for single use only" as a potential means to reduce costs has not been carefully evaluated. More prospective data comparing the efficacy, safety, and cost effectiveness of disposable versus reusable accessories is needed.
