SAGES 2022 Next Big Thing Session Podium Presentation
BELLEFONTE, Pa. - March 15, 2022 - PRLog -- Dr. Eric M. Pauli and coauthors Joshua S. Winder, MD, and Vamsi V. Alli, MD from the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine will be presenting at the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) 2022 Annual Meeting March 18 in the Next Big Thing Session. Their presentation entitled "Novel Accessory Designed to Facilitate Complex Mucosal Resection" describes a safety study performed with Actuated Medical's GripTract-GI endoscopic tissue manipulator.
"Dr. Pauli is a leading champion for our GripTract-GI device. The study shows the potential for GripTract to improve procedure outcomes and improve clinician learning curves. GripTract, while still in development, may lead to more USA clinicians being trained in endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD), thus expanding that market in the USA," said Maureen L. Mulvihill, Ph.D., President and CEO of Actuated Medical.
The GripTract-GI endoscopic tissue manipulator is a patented, cap-based endoscopic accessory designed to improve visualization during endoscopic procedures. The current model is designed for lower GI endoscopes with a future design directed towards upper GI endoscopes. An FDA premarket submission is planned by the end of 2022 for the Upper GI model. Currently, pending FDA 510(k) clearance, not available for sale in the USA.
