FoodMarble AIRE Shown to Exceed the Performance of ‘Gold Standard’ SIBO Testing in Clinical Trial

SIBO is a very common disorder where there are excessive bacteria present in the small intestine. The true prevalence of SIBO in the general population is largely unknown, with some studies estimating its occurrence in up to 15% of healthy individuals. It is also largely associated with many other common clinical conditions, including irritable bowel syndrome, where 40-80% of IBS patients have SIBO.

Barry Slowey, president of Cook Medical’s Endoscopy division stated, “We’re very excited to launch the Acrobat 2 wire guide. We’ve engineered the Acrobat 2 wire guide to give you the optimal combination of tip flexibility and pushability whether you are facing a routine ERCP or a complex procedure. The Acrobat 2 wire guide gives you the tool you need for reliable access to deliver therapy throughout the biliary and pancreatic ducts.”

Cook Medical’s Endoscopy business unit redefines access with the introduction of their latest wire guide, the next generation Acrobat® 2 Calibrated Tip Wire Guide. The Acrobat 2 provides the tip flexibility needed for ductal navigation.

The Acrobat 2 wire guide gives you the tool you need for reliable access to deliver therapy throughout the biliary and pancreatic ducts.”

Incorporating technology from Cook’s Interventional Radiology business unit to aid in traversing biliary and pancreatic ducts, the Acrobat 2 enables the creation of an alpha loop when navigating strictures, and has at least 35% greater tip flexibility than its major competitors.1

The Acrobat 2 calibrated platinum spring-coil tip is engineered for gentle contact with the tissue of the pancreaticobiliary anatomy and allows for flouroscopic visualization of the tip of the wire guide. The Acrobat 2 has a 5.8 cm hydrophilic coated tip that reduces friction, improving trackability and access of challenging anatomy.

Other important attributes of the Acrobat 2 include:

  • 29% greater pushability than the initial 0.035” version of the Acrobat wire guide.
  • 1:1 torqueability for precise rotation of the wire when needed for selective cannulation and navigation of ducts.
  • The Mark V System® provides high-contrast visualization of movement and depth of insertion.

The Acrobat 2 is available in both 0.025- and 0.035-inch diameters and 205 cm, 260 cm and 450 cm lengths, with both straight and angled tips. The Acrobat 2 can also be used during sphincterotomy.
