Study presented at DDW 2008 Confirms that New Device Significantly Improves Detection of Polyps in the Colon
Date:5/21/2008

-established from previous research that lesions may be missed, especially on the proximal aspect of haustral folds and flexures or behind the ileocecal valve," said Dr. Waye.

Used during colonoscopy, the Third Eye Retroscope is an auxiliary imaging device that provides retrograde illumination and visualization of the colon for diagnostic purposes. Developed by Avantis Medical Systems, Inc. of Sunnyvale, Calif., this innovative new endoscopic device is passed through the instrument channel of a standard colonoscope until it extends beyond the tip of the colonoscope. As it emerges, the device automatically turns around 180 degrees to provide a continuous retrograde view while the colonoscope is being withdrawn.

Colonoscopy is widely regarded as the "gold standard" for detection of abnormalities in the colon. However, previous research has revealed that 12-24% of polyps and a significant number of cancers can be missed during colonoscopy, especially if they lie behind folds in the colon wall. [1],[2], [3] This new device is designed to solve this problem by allowing the physician to view the opposite side of those folds during the procedure.

The study (which is still active) has found that, in combination with a standard colonoscope, the Third Eye Retroscope detected 13.3% additional polyps, and 12.4% additional adenomas, compared with the colonoscope alone. Polyps detected with the Third Eye were comparable in size to those seen with the colonoscope.

"Our investigators are finding that the Third Eye Retroscope is a promising new technology for improving visualization during colonoscopy," continued Dr. Waye. "During the study, the Third Eye revealed areas that are often hidden from the forward-viewing colonoscope, and it allowed a significant increase in detection of adenomas and other polyps."

In the 214 patients studied to date, 203 polyps were identified with the standard colonoscope. With the Third Eye Retroscope, an additional 2
