A clinical trial of the Aer-O-Scope colonoscope system is currently underway in Tel-Aviv Sourasky Medical center. Results so far demonstrated that the operation of the colonoscope is safe and very similar to conventional colonoscope. The system requires minimal training. Visualization is excellent enabling physicians to see larger areas of the colon mucosa in one view. 

For more information on the clinical trial, please contact us. 

”The current configuration of the Aer-O-Scope Colonoscope System allows for therapeutic interventions with high quality and efficacy. The operation of the system is very convenient.  We did not see any technical problems and my general impression is excellent, including subjects with challenging anatomy and polypectomy.”

Clinical and Pre-Clinical Trial Results
Previous Self-Propelled Version of the Aer-O-Scope System

A clinical evaluation of the Aer-O-Scope was conducted in 2013 at a Tel Aviv hospital to determine the safety and cecal intubation rate of success.

A clinical evaluation of the Aer-O-Scope was conducted in 2013 at a Tel Aviv hospital to determine the safety and cecal intubation rate of success.

 

 
Highlights
  • Prospective patients presenting for colorectal cancer screening underwent Self-Propelled Disposable Colonoscope immediately followed by Conventional Colonoscope

  • Excellent results were achieved in the trial

  • FDA clearance obtained September 2014

PRE-CLINICAL

2014 randomized in vivo Visualization Study in Swine

 

 
Highlights
  • Beads surgically implanted to mimic pathologies in 12 swine

  • Training to operate the Aer-O-Scope System and visualize pathologies completed in half a day

  • Two physicians performed three Aer-O-Scope colonoscopies and two conventional colonoscopies randomly on each subject

  • Two additional physicians performed video reviews of all procedures.

  • Randomization of all study parameters (swine, number and size of beads per swine, order of procedures, procedure rooms, physicians)

  • No difficulty in reading procedure videos on the Aer-O-Scope System display was reported
