Gastric Band Surgery
The EndoFLIP® system allows a surgeon to set a consistent band stoma diameter at surgery for every patient. Consistent stoma size minimizes the risk of the band being too tight at the completion of surgery, and allows a surgeon to assess if sufficient peri-gastric fat has been removed to create an adequate stoma size. The system permits a surgeon to assess stoma size for patients where previous band-fill history is not available.

Gastric Imbrication / Gastric Plication
The EF-620 catheter will be available in March 2011. It has a 16cm long imaging field for measuring sleeves created during sleeve gastrectomy and vertical gastroplasty. The EndoFLIP® system is particularly suited to measuring sleeves created by a new experimental procedure, gastric imbrication, since the diameter of the sleeve can be observed changing in real time as successive plications are performed.
