摘要

Reprocessing of gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopes and accessories is an essential part of patient safety and quality control in GI endoscopy centers. However, current endoscopic reprocessing guidelines or procedures are not adequate to ensure patient-safe endoscopy. Approximately 5.4 % of the clinically used duodenoscopes remain contaminated with high-concern microorganisms. Thus, the Digestive Endoscopy Society of Taiwan (DEST) sets standards for the reprocessing of GI endoscopes and accessories in endoscopy centers. DEST organized a task force working group using the guideline-revision process. These guidelines contain principles and instructions of step-by-step for endoscope reprocessing. The updated guidelines were established after a thorough review of the existing global and local guidelines, systematic reviews, and health technology assessments of clinical effectiveness. This guideline aims to provide detailed recommendations for endoscope reprocessing to ensure adequate quality control in endoscopy centers.
