LASER CATHETER FOR TREATMENT OF GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX
DESCRIPTION ( Investigator's Abstract): The goal of this research is the
development of a highly maneuverable, self-propelled gastrointestinal
intervention system. The technology developed under this program is
intended to greatly expand the range of diagnostic and therapeutic
procedures that can be performed endoscopically, permit access to the
entire small bowel, and reduce patient discomfort.
PROPOSED COMMERCIAL APPLICATION:
The commercial applications of the technology developed under this program are
significant. The number of endoscopic procedures continues to grow at a rapid
rate due to heightened interest in minimally-invasive procedures and the current
climate of cost containment.
