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.
The Endoflip™ impedance planimetry system helps identify motility disorders by providing real-time pressure and dimension measurements in the esophagus, lower esophageal sphincter and pylorus.
The Endoflip™ impedance planimetry system provides real-time assessment of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) myotomy during Heller myotomy or per-oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM) procedures.
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 used in a clinical setting to dilate the gastroesophageal junction (EGJ) to treat 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 or EGJ in a real-time image. The catheter connects to an Endoflip™ system, which injects a conductive solution into the dilation balloon placed in the stricture area or the EGJ. 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.
The Esoflip™ ES-320 catheter is not suitable for diameter measurements and dilation of strictures smaller than 8 mm or greater than 20 mm.
The Esoflip™ ES-330 catheter is not suitable for diameter measurements and dilation of strictures smaller than 8 mm or greater than 30 mm.
The Endoflip™ impedance planimetry system may transform the way you evaluate symptoms consistent with motility disorders and helps you minimize patient discomfort.([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, help you identify major motility disorders.1
Endoflip™ 2.0 impedance planimetry system with Flip™ topography is complementary to high-resolution manometry (HRM) and other diagnostic methods.1
