  • gastrointestinal endoscopes
  • It was they who introduced the new range of gastrointestinal endoscopes that have enabled clinicians directly to examine virtually the entire alimentary tract, as well as making it possible to visualize, with associated radiological techniques, organs such as the pancreas , which had until then been examined only by a major operation involving the opening of the alimentary tract.
