A short while back we published an entry about new video with our Chairman Dr. Peter Johann. In it Dr. Peter Johann talks about Lumendi’s strategie and goals for 2018.
Gastroenterologists face medical and technical challenges each day. They focus on the chances and risks of different medical procedures. Moreover, new technical possibilities are explored before the become a kind of standard.
In this blog entry we outline the advantages and impact the DiLumen platform and its technology will likely have upon medical practice in the gastrointestinal area.
Minimally invasive endoscopic therapies
If we use minimally invasive endoscopic therapies to remove polyps within the digestive tract under direct endoscopic visualization.
Patients recovers faster from this medical procedure. In addition, the risk for possible complications can be significantly reduced. That is an additional bonus from the patient’s point of view.
For health insurers, reduced costs for the procedure and follow-up costs are likely.
DiLumen helps remove limits of traditional endolumenal procedures today
Today endoscopic removal of relatively simple polyps can be done during a medical check-up. In colonoscopy such work has become well established standard (e.g., polypectomy). But during more complex, larger procedures where, for instance, the polyp is already part of the intestinal wall, medical experts and their skills are challenged. It is sometimes nearly impossible to do as well as one might want and have to for the patient’s sake.
Only well trained experts can handle the complex and technologically demanding techniques, such as ESD (Endoscopic Mucosal Resection). ESD is required to remove complex polyps. Humans intestines is very flexible. They therefore represent an unstable environment for grasping and removing any kind of human tissue.
Here Lumendi’s DiLumen Ig™ endolumenal interventional grasper can make a real difference. It makes the area where the operating occurs a stable zone. Moreover, visibility is also drastically improved for the medical expert.
Hence, complex polyps can be removed using endoscopy more easily.
„This is the company that is going to change ESD and make it easier for us“
In clinical use DiLumen’s advantages have been confirmed. For instance, usingDiLumen Ig™ endolumenal interventional grasper improves visivility, stability and traction in the intestine. This results in significantly shortening the time needed for the procedure. As well, to use of anaesthetic can be reduced.
Many advantages for medical experts conducting the procedure. In turn, their patients also benefit: A win-win situation.
