First EndoFLIP cases in Middle East

16th June 2012

This week Crospon took part in a trade mission to the United Arab Emirates where the first cases using EndoFLIP in the Middle East took place. The mission, which was organized by Enterprise Ireland and the Government of Dubai, gave the company an opportunity to meet many key UAE opinion leaders in bariatric surgery. It is striking how sleeve gastrectomy has come to dominate the bariatric surgery landscape in the UAE (>70% procedures).

Two cases took place, using EndoFLIP to evaluate sleeves created during Sleeve Gastrectomy. The first procedure was at Tawam Hospital, Al Ain under the direction of Dr Fawaz Torab, and the second took place under the direction of Dr. Abdul Wahed Al Wahidi at Al Qassimi Hospital, Sharjah.

The company would like to thank Ethiad Airways and the Dubai Government for the support which made this trade mission possible and Al-Nozha Medical for coordinating the surgical meetings.
