Crospon completes first human cases using EsoFLIP dilation technology

Crospon completes first human cases using EsoFLIP dilation technology

The first human cases using Crospon’s EsoFLIP balloon dilation technology on patients being treated for achalasia have taken place this week. EsoFLIP differs from standard esophageal balloon dilators in that it provides integrated measurements of balloon diameter, allowing a gastroenterologist to determine when full balloon effacement has been achieved, without the use of fluoroscopy, reducing both patient and caregiver exposure to radiation. The cases were conducted by Prof Peter Siersema in University Medical Center, Utrecht, The Netherlands. A sample of the image of the gastroesophageal junction during the dilation can be seen in the attached video.
