DiLumen Endolumenal Interventional Platform (EIP)

As a new, innovative accessory to an endoscope, DiLumen may facilitate endolumenal therapeutic procedures that otherwise require laparoscopic or open surgery of the colon.

When used as instructed, DiLumen ensures the complete positioning of an endoscope in the large intestine and assists with optical visualization, diagnosis, and endoscopic treatment. An endoscopic approach to treatment in the colon may preserve anatomy, eliminate complications associated with colectomy and reduce costs
