"ESD is technically challenging to perform"

Dr. Amit Bhatt discusses the challenges of ESD and how the ProdiGITM Traction Wire system can provide an easy and efficient deploy.

Meet the Innovation

ProdiGITM Traction Wire

Hillary Hsuzar, Senior Research Manager at Medtronic, discusses the conceptualization and development of the ProdiGiTM Traction Wire.

Clinical Study

Endoscopic submucosal dissection by using a new traction device

"Patient with a history of gastric ectopic pancreas and epigastric pain. We illustrate the endoscopic submucosal dissection of the ectopic pancreas using a new traction device, the ProdiGi traction wire. Using this device, we were able to resect the lesion en bloc with no adverse events."

The ProdiGI™ traction wire has been purpose-built for ease-of-use — to deliver uninterrupted visualization of the dissection plane — bringing clarity and confidence to your ESD procedures.1 It allows you to hold tissue during dissection procedures and expose the dissection plane.

ESD simplified

In an ex-vivo study comparing against conventional ESD, ProdiGI™ traction wire:

  • Significantly improved endoscopists’ visualization of the submucosal space1
  • Exceeded physician expectations for ease of placement1
  • Significantly improved physician satisfaction with respect to time and traction effect1
  • Can be successfully used in esophageal, gastric and colorectal ESD procedures to provide traction1 in the submucosal plane
Indicated use

The Medtronic ProdiGI™ traction wire is indicated to grasp tissue within the gastrointestinal tract during an endoscopic submucosal dissection procedure.

Detect. Resect. Prevent.

How does Medtronic’s gastrointestinal products fit into the patient pathway?

The Detect, Resect, Protect concept follows the patient pathways from detection with the artificial intelligence system GI Genius™, to resection with the ProdiGI™ ESD product portfolio and to bleeding prevention with Nexpowder™*, a new endoscopic, topical powder.

Clinical Education

The Medtronic GI learning offering is a well-established programme delivered by leading faculties from various European hospitals. 

Delegates will undergo a combination of teaching and learning methods, including online training, lectures, and peer-to-peer discussions.

Detect Early. Treat Early.

Early detection and treatment of chronic GI diseases and cancers can be key to better outcomes.
