Frost & Sullivan European Gastroenterology Technology Implementation of the Year Award Bestowed on Crospon
Date:7/1/2009

LONDON, July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The Frost & Sullivan "2009 European Gastroenterology Technology Implementation of the Year Award," is presented to Ireland-based Crospon for successfully using the impedance planimetry technique in its novel EndoFLIP(R) (endoluminal functional lumen imaging probe) imaging system.

"With EndoFLIP(R), Crospon has addressed the urgent need for a clinically acceptable diagnostic platform targeting gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)," states Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Prasanna Vadhana Kannan. "This integrated solution facilitates real-time imaging of the lower oesophageal sphincter in less than ten minutes."

The system uses a simple technique - impedance planimetry - that transforms an impedance measurement into an area measurement. It, therefore, provides a more physiologically relevant diagnostic test for GERD.

The EndoFLIP(R) system also assists surgeons in the assessment of the degree of surgical tightening of the sphincter region during surgery. The evaluation of the gastroesophageal junction by EndoFLIP(R), in tandem with direct endoscopic visualisation, heralds the emergence of a novel paradigm of diagnostic assessment known as functional endoscopy.

"Crospon's solution is easy to deploy and is also cost-effective," states Kannan. "Moreover, the components of the imaging tool enable precise measurement of the distensibility and functional diameter of the sphincter region, thereby serving as an indispensable tool for gastroenterologists."

Crospon has submitted an application to the FDA for EndoFLIP(R)'s clearance in the US market. It has already received CE mark certification from the National Standards Authority of Ireland.
