Strictures can form nearly anywhere within the GI tract due to many different factors. Endoscopic balloon dilation and stents are used to restore patency to the esophagus, pylorus, or colon when it has become obstructed due to a stricture.
Olympus is committed to bringing innovative technologies to market and has partnered with M.I. Tech to introduce a growing portfolio of flexible metal stents to help address unmet clinical needs.
In addition to luminal stenting, Olympus offers EZDilate, a 3-stage balloon which was developed based on physician feedback to increase precision through all phases on endoscopic balloon dilation in the esophagus, pylorus, papilla and colon.
