The TIF 2.0 procedure treats the root cause of GERD
It’s as simple as this: GERD is a progressive disease and PPIs may not be appropriate for all patients. Many may require anatomic alterations to the internal valve (lower esophageal sphincter) – the most important factors in the pathogenesis of GERD.
The TIF 2.0 procedures helps to lengthen, strengthen, and tighten the lower esophageal sphincter by creating a 3 cm 270° esophagogastric fundoplication.
For patients who need a repair of the diaphragmatic crura, TIF 2.0 can be done concomitantly with a hiatal hernia repair (greater than 2cm), also known as cTIF™.
Robust Clinical Data
- 81% of TIF patients no longer use PPIs daily1
- 84% esophagitis healed or improved one grade1
- 78% of TIF patients were satisfied
- 81% significantly improved quality of life scores1
Restores Anatomy to Its Natural State
- Recreates the dynamics of the Angle of HIS1
- Elongates the intra-abdominal esophagus1
- Restores the distal high pressure zone1
- Spares the fundus and the blood supply of the stomach – does not require division of the short gastric vessels1
Reproducible & Standardizable Fundoplication
- Building the GEFV around the EsophyX® device (60 French) provides consistent results1
- Fundoplication is secured with 20+ fasteners to evenly distribute force across the entire circumference of the wrap1
