IMP was formed in 2006 by 31 physicians from 13 different practices and has grown to 100 physicians treating patients at nearly 50 sites in the New York metro area. Dr. Kathleen L. Latino, IMP medical director and urologist, sees the adoption of single-use as a step forward for physicians and patients, citing the potential of single-use cystoscopy to improve efficiency and workflow in their clinics while providing a better patient experience.

“We are thrilled to partner with Ambu, the most innovative single-use endoscopy company,” said Dr. Latino. “IMP is constantly on the lookout for new innovations and technologies that allow us to become more efficient and provide better patient care. We have been very impressed with the performance of Ambu’s disruptive, high-quality single-use cystoscope platform. This allows us to eliminate costly repairs, tedious and tedious rework, and helps improve workflow efficiency.

Flexible cystoscopes were recently classified as high-risk flexible endoscopes by the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation® (AAMI), with the recommendation to sterilize reusable devices between patient uses, when possible.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced in April 2021 that it was investigating “numerous” medical device reports (MDRs) describing patient infections and other contamination issues possibly associated with reprocessed urological endoscopes, including cystoscopes.

As reprocessing guidelines become increasingly comprehensive and stringent, single-use cystoscopy is an attractive and cost-effective alternative for office and hospital clinics.

“We are delighted that IMP has adopted Ambu’s sterile, single-use aScope 4 Cysto and has already used it successfully on many patients,” said Ambu President Steven Block. “We continue to see rapid adoption of the aScope 4 Cysto in healthcare facilities across the United States and are excited to see the positive impact for hospitals, clinics, physicians and staff.”

The aScope™ 4 Cysto and aView 2 Advance are under contract with all major US Purchasing Groups (GPOs).
