Infection Prevention Considerations
Trend towards Single-Use Accessories
While proper reprocessing ensures that reusable endoscope accessories meet the required high standards of cleanliness and hygiene, single-use endoscopic components and accessories have also entered the market. These are now recommended as viable alternatives to reusable devices by several guidelines, including those from the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) and the European Society of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy Nurses and Associates (ESGENA) 1 , as well as the British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) 2 .
