Is treatment with DiLumen™ right for you?
Like a colonoscopy, endosurgical procedures are performed with an endoscope. There are several proven methods, and they are technically complex for an endoscopist, requiring skill and patience. These procedures successfully performed globally by experienced, specially trained doctors, who use specialized tools to make these procedures faster and more accurate. DiLumen is one type of tool often used in these procedures.
DiLumen™ was specifically developed to reduce the complexity of endoscopic therapy.
DiLumen was developed in the USA and has been in use since 2017, in patients around the world. Many patients are spared a surgical procedure that would result in partial removal of their colon (a hemicolectomy).
What is DiLumen™?
DiLumen™ is an attachment for endoscopes that supports your doctor during the demanding challenges of endosurgery.
- DiLumen helps your doctor more easily treat the polyp.
- Inflatable balloons help to position and stabilize your doctor’s endoscope for polyp removal.
- During removal, DiLumen helps ensure good visibility to facilitate the complete removal of the polyp.
- Complete polyp removal is thought to be the best way to prevent the polyp from growing back and preventing the development of cancer.
