15 posters featuring EndoFLIP to be presented at DDW in Chicago, IL May 3-6, 2014

5th April 2014

Fifteen posters (five oral) featuring the use of EndoFLIP are to be presented at Digestive Diseases Week to be held in Chicago, IL from May 3-6, 2014. The posters relate to the use of EndoFLIP in the management of such disorders as GERD, Eosiniphilic Esophagitis, and Achalasia. In addition posters are to be presented in newer application areas such as Gastroparesis and Fecal Incontinence. A further poster describes the first human study on safety and efficacy of the use of EsoFLIP for dilation in achalasia.

The following is a list of the posters by category:
