Innovative Procurement

At GI UK Medical, we are constantly seeking to source best in class products and groundbreaking technology. Whether this be a new improved derivative of an old favourite or a new technological advancement, we are always interested in bringing this to our customers in the UK.

Get in touch, we would love to hear from you.

Clinical Training

Training increases the speed and dexterity with which procedures are performed and minimises the errors that lead to complications. Particularly with today’s emphasis on transparency, low complication rates are critical for success. Whether an experienced gastroenterologist, a medical student or surgical nurse, staying current with rapidly developing medical equipment and techniques is a challenge. For patient safety, it is essential to successfully master new procedures using refined or even familiar equipment before reaching the operating room. Trying to squeeze training into your already over-scheduled life is difficult.

Clinical Training

Training increases the speed and dexterity with which procedures are performed and minimises the errors that lead to complications. Particularly with today’s emphasis on transparency, low complication rates are critical for success. Whether an experienced gastroenterologist, a medical student, or a surgical nurse, staying current with rapidly developing medical equipment and techniques is a challenge.

Trying to squeeze training into your already over-scheduled life is difficult.

GI UK Medical are proud to introduce The T(ractus) D(igestives) Box. The TD-Box makes hard- or showcase training easy and professional. For instance, it brings medical training with (animal) models to the next level. With a compact training box equipped with dark and transparent covers, convenient storage facilities, and is compatible with all major electrocautery brands.

The TD Box has been successfully used for the following training modules:

  • Foreign body management
  • Self-expandable metal stents training
  • Bleed arrestment with probes, clips, spray, and argon-plasma coagulation
  • Complication management and fistula closure using large clips
  • Endoscopic submucosal dissection
  • Polypectomy and endoscopic mucosal resection
  • Dilatation and banding in the oesophagus


Foreign Body Management

The ingestion of foreign bodies (FB) is a common clinical problem, and endoscopic removal is usually recommended. Accessories like nets, baskets, overtubes and graspers are continually being developed for the safe and quick removal of foreign bodies. TD-box is designed for extensive and realistic training with all these instruments and therefore is ideal for workshops and “hands-on” sessions.

The two types of covers provide a variety of training options, depending on the target audience and their experience.

The foreign-body kit contains all materials that are most often swallowed like batteries, razor blades, and part of toys. The two sides of the kit, adult, and children, have pre-shaped forms for easy categorising and storing your support materials.

Self-expandable Metal Stenting

Stenting is a routine procedure in most hospitals and indications are increasing for stent insertion in the oesophagus, and various other parts of the GI tract. The number of available “indication-related expandable stents” is rising accordingly. Keeping abreast of new surgical technologies is one of the most challenging aspects of medicine today and as with any other procedure, exhaustive training in stenting is essential for both doctors and preoperative nurses to promote optimal patient outcomes.

The TD-box is designed for the training of all steps involved in most forms of upper GI stenting. Naturally, stenting is performed within the body. Utilising the transparent cover of the TD-Box with dry lab exercises augments comprehension of this procedure.

Bleed & Complication Management

Numerous techniques have been developed to treat bleeding and perforations in the GI tract, the most common are mechanical hemostasis clips, variceal banding, argon plasma coagulation, probes, and injection sclerotherapy.
Mastering techniques for bleeding and complication management is essential to ensure the positive outcome of procedures.
The TD-Box is perfect for professional workshops that will provide invaluable training in complication management. It is designed for the training of all techniques mentioned and in different configurations, with or without electrocautery.

EMR/ESD

Polypectomy, endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR), and endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) treatment have become more effective and less invasive.
To improve cognitive and procedural skills and minimise complication risk, thorough training for physicians and surgical nurses is essential. The TD-Box is designed for all EMR/ESD training configurations (colon/rectum/oesophagus/stomach).
Compatible with all popular electrocautery brands, the TD-Box provides realistic and constructive wet-lab training sessions.

ERCP

Endoscopy departments treat patients daily for bile-duct disorders. A common example is a gallstone obstruction. Plastic or self-expandable stents can be placed to ensure the flow of bile from the bile duct. The techniques of stone extraction, positioning of stents, and the accompanying technical challenges (such as an emergency procedure for Lithotrypsia) can easily be practiced in the safe environment of simulation.

These techniques require specialist knowledge and skills to perform them. even for those experienced in endoscopy, training is required for continually evolving techniques, equipment and procedures before treatment of patients. The TD-Box, the upper-GI model in combination with the biliary-tree kit, are ideal for flexible simulation sessions. Without the odour, hygiene issues and hassles of animal models and more conveniently than heavy, awkward simulation dummies.

The clear upper-GI model is particularly ideal for explaining procedures in group training sessions, everyone can see precisely where the endoscope is placed and how the equipment needs to be manoeuvred. This also brings discussions of possible complications to life, and staff will be able to better explain the procedures to patients.

Suturing/Suture Techniques

Bonding techniques are expanding at a breakneck speed within specialist gastroenterology. By attaching revolutionary systems to an endoscope and/or by the work channels of the endoscopes in advance, gastroenterologists can attach tissue in new and ingenious ways.

Extensive test cases have proven the TD Box in combination with the upper GI models are perfect for training these techniques.

The upper GI model—primarily the “stomach” tissue, can be pierced with the appropriate instruments and then pulled in many directions. This ensures that the stitches can be made, or the specifically designed adhesive materials can be attached to the right place.
