Is Capsule Endoscopy Right for You?
PillCam SB 3 is swallowed by patients, and then it takes as many as 60,000 images before exiting the body. A sensor belt is strapped around a patients waist, with a data recorder in a pouch. This data recorder then stores all the images received by the sensors in real time. Photo: Given Imaging Ltd. The product is expected to be available in October and will mainly help people with small bowel abnormalities, such as Crohns disease. The images will help doctors track any irregularities or changes in a patients GI tract, including ulcers, bleeding, and lesions. According to Given Imaging Ltd ., the inventor of the capsule, PillCam SB 3 weighs less than four grams and is about the size of a vitamin. PillCam SB 3 is the third generation of PillCam SB, which has been on the market since 2001 and administered to over a million patients.This procedure is less invasive than a traditional endoscopy , which comprises a doctor inserting a flexible tube with a camera on the end into the anus (colonoscopy) or esophagus (upper endoscopy) while the patient is sedated. There are several companies now producing imaging capsules for endoscopy. But which procedure is better: the traditional endoscopy or the capsule?
The Use of Capsule Endoscopy
PE involves the use of either an enteroscope or a pediatric colonoscope which is inserted through the patients mouth just as in the EGD, but the scope is pushed past the ligament of Treitz. This allows evaluation of the upper portion of the small intestine. PE has similar risks to upper endoscopy. Both the enteroscope and the pediatric colonoscope are larger than an EGD scope, so the patient may experience an increase in gagging as the scope is inserted. Both scopes are longer than the normal EGD scope and inserted farther into the patients small bowel, so the patient may experience more discomfort than with an EGD. There is also an increased amount of air in the small bowel, so the patient may require more sedation or even the use of propofol to tolerate this procedure. Radiological Methods Used to Visualize the Small Bowel The other most common methods for evaluating obscure GI bleeding are the small bowel radiographic studies. They include small bowel follow-through, abdominal CT scan, and enteroclysis.
Endoscopy Equipment Market worth $37.9 Billion by 2018
The global Endoscopy Equipment Market is categorized into two broad segments - products and applications. Based on products, the endoscopy market comprises endoscopes, visualization equipment, and other instruments and accessories. The endoscopes market is further segmented into rigid endoscopes, flexible endoscopes, surgical endoscopes, and capsule endoscopes. The market for visualization equipment is further segmented into endoscopy cameras, video processors, video convertors, camera heads, light sources, wireless displays and monitors, transmitters and receivers, and others. The market for other instruments is broadly segmented into electronic and mechanical instruments. The electronic instruments segment comprises insufflators, endoscopy fluid management systems, endoscopy ultrasound systems, and others. The mechanical instruments segment comprises biopsy forceps, graspers, snares, trocars and cannulae, endoscopic implants, and others. The report also includes the endoscopic accessories market, which comprises carts/trolleys, cleaning brushes, overtubes, fluid flushing devices, biopsy valves, and others. Over the years, the demand for endoscopy has increased significantly because of the growing preference for minimally invasive surgeries. Apart from being minimally invasive, endoscopic procedures are also cost effective in terms of pre- and post-operation care costs and length of stay at hospitals. The technological advancements and breakthroughs in the field of endoscopy are expected to drive the global Endoscopy Equipment Market in the coming years.
