In brief: Very complete
Most hospitals and endoscopy centers nationwide use a sophisticated and automated multi-step process that ensures all known pathogens are eradicated before the scope is ready for use.
Products and protocols vary, so if you have concerns about the process used at the center at which you will undergo endoscopy, then give them a call and ask to your satisfaction if unsatisfied, go somewhere else.

In brief: Essure
Essyre is a hysteroscopic permanent birth control option for women.
It is an incision free procedure, done under light anesthesia and can be completed in the md's office. The fda currently stated its 5 year clinical failure rate as the lowest of all bc options.
