Simultaneously, Lumendi has filed for 510(k) clearance with the US Food and Drug Administration for a second device, named DiLumen C¹, which is designed to facilitate the complex resection of polyps in the colon. C¹’s design offers a single working channel that accommodates an atraumatic forceps, allowing for more direct tissue manipulation and traction. C¹ and Grasper will improve in block dissection of precancerous, non-invasive cancerous polyps, a procedure known as endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). After many years of feedback from leading clinicians, Lumendi believes that inadequate tissue manipulation and traction, combined with ineffective cutting, dissection and cauterization, continues to be a major challenge for many therapeutic procedures. in the digestive tract. These are the ninth and tenth devices developed by Lumendi, as the company continues to advance minimally invasive endoluminal therapies.
Lumendi is also pleased to announce that to date, clinicians in the United States, in several EU countries, including Germany, France, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom, as well as the Chinese University of Hong Kong, have performed over 3,000 procedures with the commercially available DiLumen EZ Glide.
“These new products, along with the strong market adoption of DiLumen EZ Glide, will help accelerate Lumendi’s continued vision to migrate many invasive gastrointestinal surgeries that require hospital stays, increased risk of infection high and longer recoveries to much less invasive endoluminal procedures with low complication rates, no hospital stays and very minimal recovery times. says Dr. Johann. “Additionally, based on our success in impacting therapeutic procedures in the colon and using our current technology, we recently initiated an upper gastrointestinal intervention development program that we believe will lead to less invasive and less expensive procedures with equal or better results.
The DiLumen EZ¹ and C¹ are part of a growing platform of accessories that work in conjunction with endoscopes and gastroscopes used in the large intestine that facilitate access to navigation, optical visualization, diagnosis and treatment endotherapeutic.
