Use of LiftUp®

LiftUp® serves as an injection agent for endoscopic resection techniques such as ESD, EMR and POEM. It gels thermoreversibly at body temperature and forms a stable and long-lasting cushion in the submucosa. It optimally supplements the resection techniques EMR+ and ESD+.

The LiftUp®

The new injection agent LiftUp® – for safe and simple1 EMR and ESD – offers many advantages:

• Creates a permanent cushion in the submucosa even after mucosa incision2
• Time saving due to fewer post injections3
• Separates and exposes layers and structures

Marking of the lesion with the snare tip

Injection of LiftUp® into the submucosa

Circumferential incision with the snare tip

Elevation of the lesion with  FTRD® Grasper
or OTSC® Anchor and snare closure

Push-back* of the OTSC® Anchor or FTRD® Grasper while snare stays closed and subsequent resection

*Note: Anchor needles must not be captured with the snare during the push-back move. If in doubt, the anchor needles can be closed to avoid a short circuit.
