MENTOR, Ohio—US Endoscopy, a company that focuses on endoscopy-device design and manufacturing, today announced the release of the Oracle EUS balloon. The Oracle balloon is a simplified solution for endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) procedures, according to a STERIS news release.
Traditional EUS balloons on the market contain latex material and frequently tear during application and use. Balloons can also be difficult for medical staff to apply to the endoscope and may require an additional applicator. The new Oracle balloon is made of a durable silicone material and offers superior tear resistance and easy application, the news release continued.
“Nurses and technicians experience many frustrations with EUS balloons," said Gulam Khan, US endoscopy president. “The Oracle EUS balloon is a safe, convenient option that minimizes waste, saves money for facilities and helps eliminate exposure to latex."
US Endoscopy, is a subsidiary of STERIS Corporation.
