The Endoflip™ impedance planimetry system provides real-time assessment of lower esophageal sphincter (LES) geometry and pressure.
The Endoflip™ measurement catheter is designed for use with the Endoflip™ impedance planimetry system and has an integrated pressure sensor for balloon pressure measurement.
The Esoflip™ ES-320 balloon catheter is indicated for use to dilate esophageal strictures due to esophageal surgery, primary gastroesophageal reflux, or radiation therapy. The Esoflip™ ES-330 balloon catheter is indicated for use in a clinical setting to dilate the gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) of a patient with achalasia.
Esoflip™ catheters have a dilation balloon which acts as a functional lumen imaging probe (FLIP) showing dynamic changes in the geometry of the stricture (ES-320) or GEJ (ES-330) in a real-time image. The catheter connects to an Endoflip™ impedance planimetry system, which injects a conductive solution into the dilation balloon placed in the stricture area (ES-320) or the GEJ (ES-330). The balloon contains an array of electrodes that measure voltage. As the balloon inflates under user control, the Endoflip™ system uses these voltages to estimate the diameter along the measurement area.
Do not use the Esoflip catheters on patients with actively-bleeding varices in the esophagus or with active esophageal perforation.
The Endoflip™ System is used in a clinical setting to obtain an estimation of the dimensions and balloon pressure within the alimentary canal.
Flip™ technology uses high-resolution impedance planimetry to measure luminal geometry and pressure during volume-controlled distension. It helps you assess the mechanical properties of the esophageal wall and opening dynamics of the gastroesophageal junction in adults with symptoms consistent with gastrointestinal motility disorders.
