Prof Dr Alexander Meining, Department of Interventional and Experimental Endoscopy, University Hospital Ulm, received the Innovation of the Year 2017 Award for the BougieCap within the scope of the ESGE Days 2018 in Budapest (19 to 21 April 2018). Through this award, ESGE seeks to highlight the most inspiring, ground breaking and potentially game changers in terms of both, procedural breakthroughs and new devices.

Ovesco’s new product for endoscopic therapy of gastrointestinal strictures was awarded during the opening ceremony in the Budapest Convention Centre. Prof Dr Alexander Meining presented the advantages of the BougieCap over conventional therapeutic approaches for bouginage / dilation of stenoses and strictures in the gastrointestinal tract; the main benefits include direct visual control and haptic feedback during the dilation. His clinical cases demonstrated safe and effective use of the new device.

Ovesco Endoscopy AG is pleased about this achievement and looks forward to further cooperation with Prof Dr Alexander Meining and his team.
