EndoGastric Solutions is a medical device company that specializes in developing and commercializing innovative, minimally invasive solutions for gastrointestinal diseases. The company was founded in 2003 and is headquartered in Redmond, Washington.
EndoGastric Solutions is best known for its Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF) procedure, which is used to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). GERD is a common digestive disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. It occurs when stomach acid flows back into the esophagus, causing symptoms such as heartburn, chest pain, and difficulty swallowing.
The TIF procedure is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional GERD surgery, which involves making incisions in the abdomen or chest. During the TIF procedure, a device called the EsophyX is inserted into the mouth and advanced into the stomach. The device creates a fold of tissue at the junction of the esophagus and stomach, which helps to prevent acid reflux. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes less than an hour to complete.

1 – EsophyX®
EsophyX® is a medical device used in a procedure called transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF) to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The device is inserted through the mouth and used to create a new valve at the base of the esophagus, which helps prevent stomach acid from flowing back into the esophagus. The procedure is typically performed under sedation and is less invasive than traditional surgical methods for treating GERD.
2 – EsophyX® Z+
EsophyX® Z+ is a medical device used in the Transoral Incisionless Fundoplication (TIF)® procedure for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
This device is inserted through the mouth and advanced into the stomach, where it creates a fold of tissue at the junction of the esophagus and stomach. This helps to prevent the backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus, reducing GERD symptoms.
The EsophyX Z+ device is an updated version of the original EsophyX device, with improved features such as better visualization and control of tissue manipulation. The device is designed to allow for more precise placement of the tissue folds, resulting in a more effective and long-lasting treatment for GERD.
