The EndoRotor University provides actual surgery examples and is intended for surgeons.
The EndoRotor System Quick Start Guide
This quick start guide is intended as a physician supplement to the EndoRotor System Instructions for Use (IFU). Please consult the IFU for complete details, precautions and troubleshooting.
a. Ensure Catheter Interface on console is in unlock position.
b. Insert catheter’s proximal housing into connection. Ensure hex connection aligns. Gently push catheter’s housing completely inward and rotate locking lever right into locked position.
c. On bottom surface of proximal housing are 2 connected tubing sets. The shorter of the 2 is the specimen trap connection vacuum tube. To load press vacuum release button. Stretch tube and place in to vacuum release valve until seated.
d. Connect vacuum tubing directly to top section of trap and or bypass valve with a press fit until firmly seated. The bottom section of specimen trap/Bypass valve must be connected to vacuum tubing. Remaining tubing will be connected to an over flow canister which will be connected to procedure room or portable vacuum.
e. Use vented spike on irrigation tubing to attach to saline bag. Open irrigation pump by lifting up irrigation pump hood, place irrigation tubing set on top of rollers in pump, with flow from left to right, then close irrigation pump hood.
f. Press prime button. Once primed, amber light turns green and system is ready for use.
The EndoRotor Mucosal Resection System Procedural Guide
This procedural guide is intended as a physician supplement to the EndoRotor System Instructions for Use (IFU). Please consult the IFU for complete details, precautions and troubleshooting.
“The EndoRotor is an exciting and safe invention that would be easier for flat polyp removal when piecemeal removal is necessary. Studies have shown it to be useful for clean up after piecemeal polypectomy.”
—Norio Fukami, MD Advanced Endoscopy Fellowship Director, Mayo Clinic
“EndoRotor is a great adjunct in the treatment of residual/recurrent tissue at prior polypectomy sites that can be difficult to remove with standard techniques. We have had great success with use of this device in this setting. I am even more excited about EndoRotor's use in removing necrotic tissue from pancreatitis related walled-off necrosis collections. Necrosectomy with conventional devices generally takes several discrete endoscopy sessions to complete. I have done several of these procedures using the EndoRotor device and been able to remove all debris in just one session, thereby saving the patient from multiple repeat procedures. I am excited to see future data on EndoRotor's usage in this patient population.”

“EndoRotor is an exciting new addition to our armamentarium in the management of difficult to remove lesions. This includes partially, resected polyps, and lesions in challenging locations, e.g., lesions in the appendiceal orifice, in the diverticula, and in some parts of duodenum. It is also useful in the management of refractory Barrett's esophagus. In addition, we are seeing the EndoRotor as a significant advancement in endoscopic management of walled-off pancreatic necrosis.”
— Kamran Ayub, MD Interventional and Therapeutic Endoscopy, New Lennox, Illinois
“The EndoRotor provides a unique platform to remove unwanted tissues from the foregut, midgut and hindgut by essentially debriding premalignant, non-lifting lesions that have invaded as deep as the sub-mucosa, while capturing fragmented tissues. The process is safe, efficient and without a steep learning curve, offering an alternative to other methods such as endoscopic submucosal dissection.”
