ICC-200 Cautions and Tips on Use
  Haemostasis Soft Coag., 50 W ●The colon wall is thin and delayed perforation may occur if a wide area of the muscle layer is grasped. Try to grasp only a small point on the blood vessel itself as precisely as possible.
●If it is necessary to grasp the muscle layer, it should be grasped in such a way that you are grasping only the inner circular muscle. The muscle  layer should be lifted slightly toward the inner side of the intestinal tract before activation. The most important thing with the colon and rectum is to avoid excessive activation.
●A scope with a water jet function is also essential in colorectal ESD to confirm the bleeding site and remove blood.

VIO-300D Cautions and Tips on Use
  Haemostasis Soft Coag., Effect 5, 50 W ●After rinsing the bleeding point with water and confirming its position, grasp the blood vessel, holding it at a single point.
●Grasp only the blood vessel, not the muscle layer. Lift the vessel slightly before activation.

VIO-300D Cautions and Tips on Use
  Haemostasis Soft Coag., Effect 5, 50 W

It is important to avoid excessive activation of the muscle layer as this could result in delayed perforation.
●Identify the bleeding point clearly, grasp the blood vessel at a single point, pull and apply intermittent activation for haemostasis. Avoid excessive activation of the muscle layer. Stop activation when the tissue around the bleeding point becomes white. When performing haemostasis on a perforator that penetrates to the muscle layer, restrict activation at a point before tissue whitening reaches the muscle layer.

Basic Operation of Coagrasper

1 Push the slider to open the cups.

2 Rotate the entire handle to adjust the orientation of the grasping forceps (clockwise rotation is smoother than counterclockwise rotation).

3 Guide the grasping forceps to the target region and grasp it. Lift the grasped tissue gently and supply high-frequency current.

Applicable forceps channel diameters

The Coagrasper for upper gastrointestinal applications (FD-410LR) can be used with a scope that has a channel diameter of 2.8 mm or more. The Coagrasper for colorectal use (FD-411QR/UR) should be used with a scope that has a channel diameter of 3.2 mm or more.

Why the applicable channel diameters are different

The Coagrasper for colorectal use (FD-411QR/UR) has a long working length. When it is inserted into a colonoscope while it is angulated, heavy pressure applied to the proximal end will cause deflection of the sheath. To prevent this, the proximal end of the sheath is coated with a reinforcing sheath, which increases the outer diameter of this part of the Coagrasper.
