CURRENT INSUFFLATOR LIMITATIONS

for endolumenal, endoscopic and
robotic surgeries

Insufflator Technology Comparison

Current insufflators that are used for flexible endoscopy are often inadequate for endoscopic surgery as they lack pressure control and depend on the skills of the endoscopist to manually inflate and deflate the operating field. This increases the risk of either poor visualization (over-deflation) or patient comfort/safety (over-inflation).

Limitations include:

  • Does not maintain constent pressure
  • Manual Inflation/Deflation is required
  • Relies on endoscopists skills
  • Risk of poor visualization
  • Can distract from surgical procedure

An alternative, such as the use of a laproscopic insufflator is not suitable due to its pulsatile flow/pressure reading nature which, in the confined endolumenal space, leads to alternating collapsing and inflating movements that are distracting to the surgeon.

These drawbacks are increasingly problematic as interventional endoscopy becomes more surgical in nature – procedures are lasting longer, demand more critical precision and frequently cross the gut wall.
