  1. Viral transmission and fibreoptic endoscopy.

    Article, Congrès - En anglais

    Hospital infection society. International conference. 2. London (GBR), 1990-09-02.

    Fibreoptic endoscopes have been responsible for outbreaks of infection with bacteria although viral transmission has been reported only once.

    The emergence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) has prompted a review of infection control practices in endoscopy units because of the theoretical possibility that HIV might be transmitted at endoscopy.

    Recent studies have shown that bronchoscopes and gastroscopes used on AIDS patients become contaminated with HIV genetic material although cleaning equipment in detergent removes all traces of the virus.
