New injection agent designed to enable simpler and safer endoscopic resection procedures
Aquilant, a leading provider of endoscopy equipment has launched the Fujifilm Eleview™ product, a ready-to-use submucosal injection composition that can dramatically improve the lift of polyps, adenomas, early stage cancers or other gastrointestinal mucosal lesions, prior to resection with a snare or endoscopic device. The move further strengthens Fujifilm’s extensive portfolio of cutting-edge endoscopy products and is also a positive development for the UK healthcare market, giving them a solution that can significantly enhance the performance and efficiency of gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures.
Eleview™ is a premixed blue, sterile, clear emulsion designed to enable simpler endoscopic resections through assisting in visualising the margins of the target lesion and elevating the mucosal layer and tissue to be excised. By reducing the risk of damage to the external muscular layer, which can lead to gastrointestinal perforation, Eleview™ also helps improve the safety of gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures. It is particularly effective for challenging polyps, regardless of size, location, or type providing a long-lasting lift cushion that can hold for up to 45 minutes. In addition, Eleview™ is efficient, requiring less injected volume to create cushions and fewer reinjections compared to saline alternatives, which can reduce the time needed to resect a lesion.
Given the growing demand for gastrointestinal endoscopy procedures in the UK, which is expected to increase further over the coming decade, developments such as Eleview™ are crucial. Mathew Tallis, Business Unit Manager at Aquilant explains:
“Clinicians face many challenges when performing endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) procedures, from being able to accurately define the margins of a lesion to effectively isolating the target tissue and reducing the risk of any complications. With Eleview™ we finally have a solution that can effectively assist them during this process. This is paramount, as the safety, efficiency and performance of EMR becomes even more crucial moving forward to meet the growing demand for gastrointestinal endoscopy procedures and the need to improve diagnosis and the treatment of diseases.”
