Exciting News: Introducing the Advanced TP Pivot Pro™

We are excited to introduce the TP Pivot Pro™ for transperineal prostate biopsy procedures to UK healthcare professionals. Developed by the dedicated team at CIVCO Medical Solutions, this device enables a smarter approach to prostate biopsies.

Exciting News: Introducing the Advanced TP Pivot Pro™

The TP Pivot Pro is a disposable needle-guide designed to enhance the benefits of the minimally invasive, freehand transperineal biopsy approach. Research suggests that the transperineal approach, as opposed to the transrectal, can lead to reduced risks of infections and may even eliminate the need for antibiotics following these procedures.
The device is designed with a pivoting coaxial needle that can adjust up to 20 degrees upwards and downwards from its initial parallel path, ensuring precise and full access to the prostate. Additionally, it is compatible with the vast majority of ultrasound probes - without the requirement for tape. Furthermore, the needle height can be adjusted without being removed from the guide or the patient, which helps reduce the number of needle insertions.
