Cook Medical launches Ascend single-use ureteroscope in U.S., Canada

Cook Medical this week launched its Ascend Single-Use Flexible Ureteroscope in the U.S. and Canada.

The launch allows the company to better serve more urology customers with a complete portfolio of stone management products.

Bloomington, Indiana-based Cook Medical designed Ascend to always be ready to use. It eliminates common issues in reusable ureteroscopes, including scope fatigue, reprocessing and missing or broken parts.

“The Ascend ureteroscope makes Cook a single destination for stone management disposables. As a single-use scope, Ascend is the perfect complement to our portfolio. Physicians can complete procedures faster because they won’t have to wait for scopes to be reprocessed; Ascend is always ready,” Johan Lowinger, director of product management for Cook’s Urology specialty, said in a news release.
