Avantis Medical Systems Announces Key Addition to Scientific Advisory Board
Date:2/24/2009

of the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.

"The prevalence of colorectal cancer is increasing rapidly in Japan. The number of cancer deaths due to colorectal cancer has already exceeded gastric cancer. It is the most frequent cause of death in the female population. If we can detect cancers or pre-cancerous lesions at an early stage, cancer deaths can be prevented by performing endoscopic resection," said Dr. Yamamoto. "We have a special need for cost-effective preventive medicine technologies such as the Third Eye Retroscope. I look forward to becoming involved with the scientific and clinical aspects of this device, and hope one day to be able to offer it to my patients in Japan."

Colonoscopy is widely regarded as the "gold standard" for detection of abnormalities in the colon. However, research has revealed that 12-24 percent of polyps and a significant number of cancers can be missed during colonoscopy.(1)(2)(3)

A recent multi-center study led by Dr. Jerome Waye of Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York demonstrated that use of the Third Eye Retroscope improved the detection of polyps by 13.0% compared to the colonoscope alone.(4) Another recent study involving more than 10,000 cancer patients showed that standard colonoscopy missed many more polyps and cancers in the right-side of the colon than in the left side.(5) In the Waye study, the Third Eye was shown to be equally effective in detecting polyps on both the right-side and the left-side of the colon, when compared to the colonoscope alone.(6)

The Third Eye Retroscope is indicated for use with colonoscopy to provide the physician with an additional view of the colon for diagnostic and detection purposes. When the Third Eye is deployed through the instrument channel of a standard colonoscope, it provides the physician with a retrograde view of the colon along with the forward (colonoscope) view.
