Abstract

Uncertainty still exists regarding the relative costs and the clinical effectiveness of disposable vs. reusable endoscopic accessories. Intuitively, single-use devices do not pose a risk for transmission of infection. Properly maintained and reprocessed reusable devices remain safe and effective. Both single-use and reusable accessories function well, and the selection of one or another class of devices must be based upon local purchase costs, reprocessing costs and abilities, storage and disposal facilities, and personal preferences.
