Tech Tips

How Rigid Endoscopes Get Damaged?

Arthroscopes:

  • Arthroscopes generally have 6 rod lenses.
  • The actual working distance of an arthroscope is approx. 5 – 10 mm, therefore shavers and other sharp instruments are always very close to the distal end of the scope.

 

Damage is usually caused by:

  • Rotating shaver coming in contact with the distal end of the scope
  • Bending of the lens tubing
  • Dropping
  • Improper sterilization procedures

Most common repairs:

  • Cleaning of the lens system
  • Replacing broken rod lenses
  • Replacing the objective lens system
  • Replacing the fiber optic light bundle

Cystoscopes:

  • Cystoscopes usually have 10 rod lenses.
  • These scopes are much longer than arthroscopes and tend to bend easier.

 

Damage is usually caused by:

  • Laser burns to the objective lens, lens tubing, and fiber optic light
  • Electro cautery burns
  • Bending of the lens tubing
  • Dropping
  • Improper sterilization procedures

Most common repairs:

  • Cleaning of the lens system
  • Replacing broken rod lenses
  • Replacing the objective lens system
  • Replacing the fiber optic light bundle
