Recent Patient Series Demonstrates Spirus Medical's Power Spiral Endoscope Enables Unprecedented Access to GI Tract
Date:10/15/2010

STOUGHTON, Mass., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Spirus Medical, Inc. (www.spirusmed.com), a leading developer of diagnostic and therapeutic advancement systems for gastroenterology announces a series of pan-endoscopies in an average time of 60 minutes, using a flexible endoscope with an integral drive to power a single use spiral component. The initial clinical series, which was conducted outside the U.S., showed unparalleled ability to navigate the intestinal tract.

In the clinical studies, procedures were performed from a combined anal and oral route. Of the series of ten pan-endoscopies, one examined the entire small bowel from the oral route in 24 minutes; another examined the entire small bowel from the anal route in 30 minutes. Current endoscopic modalities rarely accomplish complete GI examinations and often require several hours when they do.

"The power spiral endoscope is a truly game-changing technology that has immediate applications in how gastroenterologists evaluate intestinal disorders, with an additional range of potential applications in patients with surgically-altered anatomy—e.g., bariatric surgery," said Dr. Oleh Haluszka, Director, GI Endoscopy at Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia. Using the powered scope for the first time, Dr. Haluszka was able to negotiate the GI tract from mouth to colon in 24 minutes.

Spirus Medical has developed the Endo-Ease® line of devices aimed at revolutionizing GI endoscopy which are extensively used today to access remote areas in the small bowel and in the colon. The power spiral endoscope is the latest innovation of the technology which integrates the spiral mechanism directly into a flexible scope. In the study, powered spiral endoscopy demonstrated rapid and complete GI access and could give physicians the ability to diagnose and treat immediately as compared to having the patient return for multiple diagnostic and/or therape
