Japan based Olympus Corporation has announced the launch of SIF-H190 single balloon enteroscope, in Japan and in later in Europe, incorporating functions to advance deep into the small intestine with a smoother passage.
The product is a single balloon enteroscope for use in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the small intestine such as obscure gastrointestinal bleeding. By manipulating the angle of the endoscope and the balloon at the tip of the splinting tubeⅰ mounted to the scope, this solution supports access deep into the small intestine that is typically difficult to reach.
The SIFH190 improves manoeuvrability of inserted endo-therapeutic instruments by increasing the diameter of the instrument channelⅱ from 2.8mm of the conventional scopeⅲ to 3.2mm. In addition, incorporating technologies such as Passive Bending and High Force Transmissionⅳ that are equipped with Olympus’ colonoscopes, facilitates smoother passage through acute flexures in the small intestine.
The SIF-H190 launch is part of Olympus’ contribution to safer, more efficient endoscopic diagnosis and treatment as a company that offers total solutions in the field of small intestine diseases, from screening to diagnosis and treatment.
