What is a WATS 3D Biopsy?

A hernia can occur at any time. It occurs when fatty tissue or an organ pushes through a weak spot in the neighboring connective tissue or muscle wall. Unfortunately, hernias usually don’t get better on their own -- they get bigger. In rare cases, they can be life-threatening. For example, strangulated hernias can cut off the blood supply to the small intestine. If you think you may have a hernia, it’s always best to seek medical advice. Some hernias may need repair and doctors often recommend surgery. However, not every hernia needs immediate treatment – it will depend on the size and the symptoms.


How Is the WATS3D Biopsy Performed?

The WATS3D Biopsy device is passed through a channel in the endoscope. Then the brush is passed through the channel. The brush is then used to collect the cellular material and retracted. The specimen is then transferred and analyzed.
