The Endoflip™ impedance planimetry system uses a balloon catheter to display diameter estimates of the measurement area in real-time. It can measure and display diameter estimates at up to 16 points within the balloon. The system can also measure and display balloon pressure.1,2
The FLIP Topography Module displays the FLIPTM data in a larger format to help identify motility disorders3 by providing real-time pressure and dimension measurements in the esophagus, pylorus and anal sphincters.2
The Endoflip™ System is used in a clinical setting to obtain an estimation of the dimensions and balloon pressure within the alimentary canal.1
The EndoflipTM Catheter acts as a Functional Lumen Imaging Probe (FLIP) that shows dynamic changes in the geometry of the measurement area in a real-time image.
The catheter connects to an Endoflip™ System, which injects a conductive solution into the catheter balloon placed in the measurement area. The balloon contains an array of electrodes that measure voltage.
The Endoflip™ System uses these voltages to estimate the diameter along the measurement area.
EsoflipTM ES-310 and ES-320 balloon catheters are indicated for use to dilate esophageal strictures due to esophageal surgery, primary gastro-esophageal reflux and radiation therapy.
The catheters has a 10mm (ES-310) or 20mm (ES-320) diameter dilation balloon which acts as a functional lumen imaging probe (FLIP) showing dynamic changes in the geometry of the stricture in a real-time image.
The catheters are not suitable for diameter measurements and dilation of structures:
The EsoflipTM ES-330 Balloon Dilation Catheter is indicated for use in a clinical setting for dilating the gastroesophageal junction of a patient with Achalasia. The catheter has a 30 mm diameter dilation balloon which acts as a functional lumen imaging probe (flip) showing dynamic changes in the geometry of the gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) in a real-time image
The EsoflipTM ES-330 catheter is not suitable for diameter measurements smaller than 8mm or greater than 30mm.
The Esoflip catheters connects to an EndoflipTM System, which injects a conductive solution into the dilation balloon. The balloon contains an array of electrodes that measure voltage. As the balloon inflates under user control, the EndoflipTM System uses these voltages to estimate the diameters along the measurement area.
The Endoflip™ impedance planimetry system is a well-tolerated method for assessment that may transform the way you evaluate patients with symptoms consistent with motility disorders.([FOOTNOTE=Carlson DA, Kahrilas PJ, Lin Z, Hirano I, Gonsalves N, Listernick Z, Ritter K, Tye M, Ponds FA, Wong I, Pandolfino JE.

This advanced imaging technology provides an internal view of the gastroesophageal junction during endoscopic procedures. Real-time measurements of the pressure and dimensions in the esophagus, and other sphincters of the alimentary canal, may help you identify major motility disorders.1
Endoflip™ impedance planimetry system with Flip™ topography is complementary to high-resolution manometry (HRM) and other diagnostic methods.1
