Looping is a common occurrence during colonoscopy.
Loop resolution is important to enable rapid completion of colonoscopies and precisely control endoscope movements during therapeutic procedures.
Sometimes the loop resolution can take a long time and the colonoscopy can be prolonged or even incomplete.
Magnetic Balloon Technology
The solution for challenging looping
• No setup costs
• Compatible with standard colonoscopes
• On demand usage and no need of preloading
Endorail Balloon Guide is a single use balloon catheter.
It can be inserted in the colonoscope tool channel and filled with Endorail Ferromagnetic Fluid.
Endorail Ferromagnetic Fluid is a water dispersion of biocompatible iron powder.
It can be easily injected inside the catheter for filling the balloon.
Endorail Handpiece contains a permanent magnet.
Its design allows to easily modulate the intensity of the magnetic field.
Endorail Cart contains Endorail Handpiece for its storage.
Its compact design allows to keep it in the endoscopic room ready for use.
Easy and quick procedure!
Sometimes solving loops is challenging.
Endorail Balloon Guide is inserted in the colonoscope tool channel.
The balloon is filled with Endorail Ferromagnetic Fluid.
Endorail Handpiece is placed over the patient’s abdomen.
The balloon is magnetically anchored.
The endoscopist pulls and rotates the colonoscope for solving the loop.
The balloon is deflated and removed and colonoscopy is completed with standard technique.
