The MAGUS team has developed a medical device that allows endoscopic septotomy in a simple and safe way.
This device combines two magnets and a self-retractable wire to perform a progressive septotomy by compression of the tissues.
The article describes the concept of the device, preclinical studies and the first clinical use of the device for the treatment of symptomatic epiphratic esophageal diverticuum (EED).
In conclusion, this new system provides a way of performing endoluminal septotomy in a single procedure. It appears to be effective and safe for managing symptomatic EED.
Further clinical applications where this type of remodeling of the GI tract could be beneficial are under investigation.
