Endoflip™ impedance planimetry system provides an internal view of the esophagus and the gastroesophageal junction during endoscopic and surgical procedures. Performed during endoscopy, results may complement or eliminate the need for manometry.1
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™ impedance planimetry system with Flip™ topography is complementary to high-resolution manometry (HRM) and other diagnostic methods.1
There are many types of motility disorders, and pinpointing the underlying cause of the patients symptoms can bechallenging.5
Endoflip™ impedance planimetry system can provide information that may lead you to a therapeutic direction you are looking for.
Endoflip™ 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 various esophageal diseases.

Endoflip™ 1.0 and 2.0 impedance planimetry system
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, pylorus, and anal sphincters.
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.6
Endoflip™ measurement catheter
The Endoflip™ measurement catheter is designed for use with the Endoflip™ impedance planimetry system and has an integrated pressure sensor for balloon pressure measurement.
Esoflip™ dilation catheter
The Esoflip™ ES-310 and ES-320 balloon catheters are 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.
The Esoflip™ ES-310 catheter is not suitable for diameter measurements and dilation of strictures smaller than 6 mm or greater than 10 mm.
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.
