Common Causes:

  • Improper care & handling, such as distal tip being dropped, can cause the distal to crack or chip.
  • Improper or inadequate storage areas.
  • Insufficient cleaning of distal end.

Prevention Methods:

  • Carefully place scopes into storage areas. Impact with hard surfaces will cause damage to distal tip.
  • Use sinks and soak basins large enough to prevent over-coiling.
  • Avoid stacking endoscopes at any time.
  • Maintain control over the distal end, especially during transport and cleaning.
