PowerSpiral Enteroscopy

PowerSpiral Enteroscopy

Enteroscopy is a type of endoscopy procedure used in the diagnosis and management of different types of digestive conditions. An endoscope is inserted through the mouth and into the upper gastrointestinal tract. The PowerSpiral Enteroscopy allows for fast and gentle access to reach deep into the gastrointestinal tract by pleating the small bowel onto the enteroscope using a spiral segment.

How is it performed?

  • Before the procedure, the patient will be sedated.
  • An endoscope is inserted into the mouth and is slowly moved down into the small intestines.
  • To enable smooth and safe insertion of the scope into the small intestines, the PowerSpiral enteroscope has a spiral overtube that rotates while the scope remains stationary.
  • Once the procedure is complete, the endoscope is removed.
  • An enteroscopy procedure takes about one to two hours to complete.
