Suture Units, Endoscopic, Lower Esophageal Sphincter

Definition : Endoscopic automated suture units designed for mounting on an endoscope used to suture the tissues in the lower esophageal sphincter during endoluminal gastroplication procedures. The devices typically consist of a suture-delivery mechanism, frequently including a capsule chamber that contains needles, a suture-carrier accessory, and a handle to manipulate the equipment and control the suture delivery. The devices place the stitches and create pleats in the lower esophageal sphincter. Lower esophageal sphincter endoscopic suture units are mainly used to tighten the lower esophageal sphincter to reduce acid reflux for patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease.
