Description

BIOFILMS & ENDOSCOPY

  • Growth of biofilms inside endoscope channels can result in failure of endoscope reprocessing and is an important factor in the pathogenesis of endoscopy-related infections. 
  • Microbial surveillance to monitor endoscopes after reprocessing has been recommended by a majority of organizations (ASGE, ESGE, ESGENA, GESA).
  • Countries with systematic endoscope monitoring confirm high contamination rates.

WHY WORRY ABOUT ENDOSCOPES?

10 to 30% of patient-ready endoscopes are contaminated with microorganisms. ¹
  • If contaminated scopes are used, investigators noted high rates of transmission.²More outbreaks are linked to contaminated endoscopes than to any other medical device.³
  • Endoscopes not sterilized, hence reprocessing has narrow margin of safety. Any slight deviation can lead to survival of microorganisms.
  • Endoscopes are significant vectors for nosocomial transmission of microorganisms as a result of scope contamination from the patient or from the inanimate environment (e.g. automated endoscope reprocessing devices).
