US Endoscopy announces full market release of the Oracle™ EUS balloon

Mentor, Ohio — February 6, 2013 — US Endoscopy, a world leader in endoscopy device design and manufacturing, is proud to announce the release of the Oracle™ EUS balloon. The Oracle™ balloon is a simplified solution for endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) procedures.

Traditional EUS balloons on the market contain latex material and frequently tear during application and use. Balloons can also be difficult for medical staff to apply to the endoscope and may require an additional applicator. The new Oracle™ balloon is a simplified solution – made of a durable silicone material it offers superior tear resistance and easy application.

“Nurses and technicians experience many frustrations with EUS balloons,” says Gulam Khan, US Endoscopy President. “The Oracle™ EUS balloon is a safe, convenient option that minimizes waste, saves money for facilities and helps eliminate exposure to latex.”
