Ovesco is proud to announce that LiftUp® has received market approval in Europe. It is a new injection agent for endoscopic resection techniques such as ESD, EMR and POEM. Due to its thermoreversible properties it becomes a gel at body temperature and forms a stable and long-lasting cushion in the submucosa.
Preclinical evaluation shows that LiftUp is an effective alternative to common injection solutions1 and could fasten up endoscopic resection because of its long-lasting and pronounced lifting effect2. Together with our procedural concepts EMR+ and ESD+ it delivers an optimized endoscopic resection technique.
