PENTAX Medical to bolster circulation of SMARTs GEYE innovation over the EMEA advertise NewsMedicalnet

“PENTAX Medical EMEA a
ounces its continued cooperation with SMART Medical to support the distribution and deployment of SMARTu2019s G-EYEu00ae technology integrated with PENTAX Medicalu2019s HD+ systems to the EMEA market. The G-EYE system employs a permanently-integrated balloon at the tip of the conventional endoscope, which is moderately inflated during endoscope withdrawal and enhances colonoscopy detection capabilities by straightening intestinal folds, centralizing the endoscope optics and eliminating bowel slippage. The result is a significantly improved detection of pre-cancerous polyps (adenomas) and substantial clinical benefit.
The G-EYE system provides an i
ovative solution for enhancing adenoma detection rate (ADR), meeting the demand for improved quality in colonoscopy. G-EYE allows increasing ADR and superior stabilization of the endoscope even at difficult locations such as the right colon and tight flexures. Combined with the more controlled withdrawal of the G-EYE system, this provides improved diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities and a faster and more controlled procedure.
Rainer Burkard, President EMEA, PENTAX Medical commented:
Both PENTAX Medical and SMART Medical Systems are committed to the distribution of the G-EYE System to increase ADR across the endoscopy community. At PENTAX Medical, we are pleased to offer the integrated solution of SMART Medicalu2019s G-EYE technology with our i
ovative HD+ endoscopy systems. We believe it has the capabilities to transform current adenoma detection practices, which is a statement that has been validated through a prospective randomized multi-center study, supported by both companies.”
