PENTAX Medical introduces SMART Medical’s G-EYE® technology across EMEA for enhanced adenoma detection
Hamburg, 9 March 2017 – PENTAX Medical EMEA announces its continued cooperation with SMART Medical to support the distribution and deployment of SMART’s G-EYE® technology integrated with PENTAX Medical’s HD+ systems to the EMEA market. The G-EYE system employs a permanently-integrated balloon at the tip of the conventional endoscope, which is moderately inflated during endoscope withdrawal and enhances colonoscopy detection capabilities by straightening intestinal folds, centralizing the endoscope optics and eliminating bowel slippage. The result is a significantly improved detection of pre-cancerous polyps (adenomas) and substantial clinical benefit1.
The G-EYE system provides an innovative solution for enhancing adenoma detection rate (ADR), meeting the demand for improved quality in colonoscopy. G-EYE allows increasing ADR and superior stabilization of the endoscope even at difficult locations such as the right colon and tight flexures. Combined with the more controlled withdrawal of the G-EYE system, this provides improved diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities and a faster and more controlled procedure.
Rainer Burkard, President EMEA, PENTAX Medical commented, “Both PENTAX Medical and SMART Medical Systems are committed to the distribution of the G-EYE System to increase ADR across the endoscopy community. At PENTAX Medical, we are pleased to offer the integrated solution of SMART Medical’s G-EYE technology with our innovative HD+ endoscopy systems. We believe it has the capabilities to transform current adenoma detection practices, which is a statement that has been validated through a prospective randomized multi-center study, supported by both companies.”
The study included 1,000 patients enrolled across 14 international centers of expertise to compare the detection rate of the G-EYE system with that of standard HD colonoscopy. Intermediate results of 480 patients presented outstanding ADR results, including a 45.6% increase in ADR and a 96.9% increase in the detection of advanced adenomas1. The system also received excellent clinical feedback throughout the study.
Prof. Ralf Kiesslich, HELIOS Dr. Schmidt Kliniken, Wiesbaden, Germany who is leading the multi-center study commented, “G-EYE detects significantly more adenomas than standard colonoscopy and reduces colonoscopy miss rates. The increased ADR, advanced adenomas, and adenomas per patient will ultimately impact surveillance intervals of patients undergoing colonoscopy.“
Professor Sauid Ishaq, from Russell’s Hall Hospital, Dudley, UK, was one of the clinicians involved in the G-EYE multi-center study. Describing his experience, he said, “…The G-EYE endoscope ensures the colon haustral folds are straightened, the endoscope optics are centered within the lumen, bowel slippage is avoided in difficult positions and the overall visibility is improved. In addition, the balloon can help stabilize the endoscope’s tip in difficult conditions. The clinical results of the G-EYE endoscope, together with the accessibility advantages, provide a solid ground for the G-EYE endoscope delivering a high-end solution for day-to-day routine colonoscopy.”
In combination with Smart Medical’s NaviAid AB™ through-the-channel balloon device, the G-EYE system also offers on-demand two-balloon endoscopy to meet the market requirement for small intestine procedures. Being a unique, complete solution, the G-EYE system in combination with NaviAid AB delivers additional complementary therapeutic and enteroscopic functions.
Gadi Terliuc, CEO, SMART Medical Systems Ltd. added, “While colonoscopy has long been the technique-of-choice for preventing and diagnosing colorectal cancer, it was well known that many adenomas were unfortunately missed during routine colonoscopy. There was a need for a new product or technique that could reveal missed and hard-to-spot lesions, which is where the G-EYE system excels, providing an almost 50% increase in ADR. Our extended partnership with PENTAX Medical, a market leader in the endoscopy field, can make the G-EYE a widely available solution and a new standard of care in colonoscopy.”

PENTAX Medical offers its HD Stroboscopy system for ENT applications across Europe, Middle East & Africa
Hamburg, 2 February 2017 – PENTAX Medical, the leading ENT endoscopic manufacturer, now offers its HD Stroboscopy system for ENT applications across Europe, Middle East and Africa. The HD Strobe system provides a premium solution to optimize voice assessment, affording six times the image detail of standard-definition video to assist in the detection of subtle pathology.
The new PENTAX Medical system (formerly branded KayPENTAX) allows the improved visualization of anatomical structures such as: tongue, base of tongue, uvula, epiglottis, vocal folds, false cords, arytenoids, velleculae and pyriform sinus. Physiologically, the HD Stroboscopy system allows vibration, symmetry, periodicity, amplitude, mucosal wave and closure to be captured in clear HD images.
PENTAX Medical’s HD Stroboscopy system consists of the strobe light source and HD recording module, delivering sharp, vibrant HD 1080i video images and unparalleled stroboscopy. Only PENTAX Medical offers true flashing stroboscopy with a unique pitch tracking dual microphone design.
The HD Stroboscopy system from PENTAX Medical provides a premium solution to optimize voice assessment, affording six times the image detail of standard-definition video
The camera’s CCD element is exposed to the moving image by a pulse of high intensity light that lasts a fraction of a second (0.000005 sec.). This time period represents a very small percentage of the glottal cycle thereby producing a crisp image with good edge detail and a clear picture of vascularity. Superior pitch tracking, throat mic or EGG input for Fo detection ensures the system quickly locks to the voice’s fundamental frequency. The system also includes enhanced recording facilities including easy report generation, still image capture and DVD burning.
PENTAX Medical’s Stroboscopy system is scalable and can be optimized when used in combination with the premium DEFINA system. When used in conjunction with DEFINA, i-scan imaging technology it can further improve the clarity of pathology edges and vascularity, supporting more accurate diagnosis.
“The advanced technology has made us look again at the speed, convenience and reduced cost, and also the ability to carry out advanced procedures that weren’t previously possible, within an out-patient setting. It is inevitable that incremental changes in technology will make procedures even easier to perform in the future and the outpatient procedure clinic will become the mainstay of Laryngology practice in the UK and internationally.” Commented Professor Birchall, Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital, London, UK.
