Three new published papers describe the use of EndoFLIP to characterize ano-rectal physiology

26th November 2012

To date, the prime use of EndoFLIP has been in the esophagus and stomach. EndoFLIP is uniquely suited to assessment of anorectal physiology, where sphincter incompetence is a prime cause fecal incontinence.

Three new papers have been recently published which describe the use of EndoFLIP to assess the anal canal in normal subjects, and in subjects with fecal incontinence. This work, and ongoing work, will lead to EndoFLIP being used to support colorectal surgeons performing repair of the anal sphincters, much in the same manner as it has been used in surgical repair of the lower esophageal sphincter in GERD and achalasia.

The three papers are as follows :

  1. Evaluation of anal sphincter resistance and distensibility in healthy controls using EndoFLIP
