Foreign Body Removal Devices

The management of ingested foreign bodies and food boluses is a common clinical situation in which endoscopic foreign body removal or surgical intervention is suggested. Often times, long or oddly shaped objects and sharp items risk perforation in the esophagus while food impactions can cause obstruction of the esophagus and require urgent intervention. A variety of foreign object ingestion devices and techniques are indicated for different situations. STERIS is dedicated to assisting your staff in foreign body management by delivering removal devices to better prepare you for emergency retrieval cases. From Roth Net® Retrievers and the Guardus® Overtube to the Raptor® Grasping Device, you can rely on our essential selection of foreign body removal devices for security and peace of mind.


Raptor® Grasping Device

  • Hybrid jaw configuration combines alligator and rat tooth forceps capabilities into one, increasing the gripping ability for a stronger hold
  • Distal rat tooth forceps teeth are designed to fully close around foreign bodies
  • Available in three sizes, including a rotatable hybrid grasping forceps and a smaller option for ultra-slim endoscopes

Roth Net Retriever

Roth Net® Retrievers

  • The Roth Net Retriever and Roth Net Platinum Retrievers are ideal for food impaction and foreign body extraction such as coins or marbles past the cricopharyngeus. The octagonal design of the Roth Net Platinum retriever features a spring-like action and is designed to open to maximum capacity while maintaining its shape within the esophagus, even after multiple passes. The large-capacity, reinforced retrieval net also provides strength and security, especially when removing round, blunt objects that are hard to grasp and hold during foreign body retrieval.

The overtube system features an exclusive tapered tip design to protect against mucosal damage, while its insufflation cap helps maintain insufflation and guard against leakage of body fluids.
