Entellus Medical launches PathAssist LED Light Fiber
Sep 20, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Entellus Medical, a manufacturer of tools for treating patients with chronic and recurrent sinusitis, has launched its PathAssist LED Light Fiber.
Used in conjunction with the XprESS LoProfile Multi-Sinus Dilation Tool when a physician performs balloon sinus dilation, the battery-powered device increases user convenience by eliminating the need for extra light sources, light cables and adapters, while also providing enhanced visualization of the XprESS tip.
The design of the XprESS LoProfile with PathAssist LED Light Fiber differentiates it from other sinus dilation tools in the market by combining into a single tool, balloon sinus dilation, a shapeable sinus seeker, suction and irrigation, and multiple tip location methods including the use of high-intensity, red-colored LED trans-illumination to confirm tool location in a sinus.
"By using LED technology, which is seen today in a growing number of applications from high intensity auto headlamps to energy efficient household lighting, Entellus is leading the way in providing ENT physicians a highly convenient and innovative tool to guide the placement of the XprESS balloon sinus dilation device during balloon treatment of obstructed sinuses. In particular, the red LED light used in the PathAssist LED Light Fiber provides ENT physicians exceptionally bright trans-illumination of diseased sinuses even in the presence of blood. With a miniature, self-contained LED light source, physicians can now perform sinus dilation procedures without the hassle of a light cable hanging off the back of the sinus dilation device. This is particularly useful for balloon sinus dilation procedures performed in the physician's office," said Brian Farley, CEO of Entellus Medical.
