Notable FeaturesOf TP Pivot Pro
TP Pivot Pro was designed with clinicians, for clinicians, to enable a smarter approach to transperineal prostate biopsies.
- Freehand, minimally invasive approach
- Pivoting coaxial needle
- Allows height adjustments without removing coaxial needle from guide or patient
- Use under local or general anesthesia
- Single-use device, no reprocessing required
- Designed to fot range of ultrasound probes
- Secure transducer attachment, no taping required
The transperineal approach is shown to reduce risk of patient infection, improve access to all zones of the prostate, and potentially eliminate the need for antibotics alltogether.6
TP Pivot Pro biopsy guide improves clinician workflow for transperineal prostate biopsies
- Easy height adjustments without removing the needle from the guide or the patient
- Unique pivot feature allows parallel and angling options of the introducer needle while maintaining visualization within the imaging plane
- Secure attachment to the transducer on a range of bioplane probe diameters, without the need to tape a transducer
Improved Clinical AdvantagesOf Transperineal Biopsies
Evidence shows the transperineal approach can lead to improved
outcomes compared to the transrectal approach:
Reduces risk of negative patient outcomes such as infection and rectal bleeding4
Significantly reduces post-biopsy complications without quinolone antibiotics, especially urosepsis3
Greater sampling of the anterior zone of the prostate2
Better detection of clinically significant disease and anterior tumours1
Evidence shows freehand transperineal prostate biopsies may be performed in an office under local anesthesia, reducing overhead costs associated with general anesthesia, operating room and equipment requirements.
