DiLumen EZ Glide

Datasheet Brochure Journal


Introducing DiLumen‘s newest innovation: EZ Glide

EZ Glide is an innovative, proprietary, hydrophilic coating applied to DiLumen’s inner sheath. Activated by simply water or saline, EZ Glide reduces the need for messy accessory lubricants. The result is an easier, faster and cleaner preparation, with a marked improvement in endoscopic stability, visibility, and control.

DiLumen EZ Glide provides decisive advantages to GI professionals who perform endoluminal procedures.
  • Improved endoscopic performance: stabilise the endoscope tip and the nearby anatomy.
  • Gentle anatomic control: safely straighten and penetrate tortuous anatomy for faster access and improved control.
  • Cleaner preparation and improved visibility: reduce the need for messy gels or oils during preparation and improve intraoperative visibility.
  • Conduit: enable safe and repeated access, and efficient exchange of tools and tissue removal.

“EZ Glide represents a huge improvement in usability of DiLumen technology. The enhanced ease of use has prompted me to use DiLumen more often for complex colonic polypectomies.”

Dr. David Diehl Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, PA

“The new DiLumen EZ Glide improved our ability to remove four cecal polyps in a recent case.”

Dr. Stuart Gordon Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Lebanon, NH

Endoluminal Interventional Platform (EIP) with hydrophilic EZ Glide coating


A randomized prospective study evaluates the economic efficiency of the endoluminal double-balloon platform DiLumen for colorectal endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD)

Presented at UEG Week 2020 and ACG 2020 by Dr. S. Kantsevoy, Director of Therapeutic Endoscopy, Mercy Medical Center, Baltimore, USA

The results at a glance:

  • 49% less time spent on ESD
  • 37% less time required for the entire procedure
  • En bloc resection in 97% vs. 86% in the comparison group


DiLumen® EIP consists of a soft flexible sheath that fits over standard and small diameter endoscopes. The platform employs two balloons, one behind the bending section of the endoscope and the second in front of the tip of the endoscope. When both balloons are deployed and inflated the area in between is stabilised. This Therapeutic Zone (TZ) facilitates stabilisation, insufflation, and manipulation of the tissue thus allowing the clinician to more effectively treat the target area. Once the therapy is completed the balloons are simply deflated and removed along with the endoscope.

Complex Polypectomy Benefits

Superior manipulation of colon

  • Aids in colon straightening and shortening
  • Navigate challenging sections of the colon
  • Easier access to lesions
  • Reduce fatigue from excess torque and manipulation of endoscope

Stabilisation of the endoscope tip in relation to the intestinal wall

  • Therapeutic Zone™ (TZ) stabilises colon, endoscope, and tools
  • Better control of endoscope, tools, and tissue

Conduit to therapeutic site

  • Scope exchange without loss of position
  • Instrument stabilisation and exchange, when necessary
  • Quick return to the therapeutic site

Visualization is enhanced, especially around flexures and folds

  • Manipulation of colon wall and improved positioning of lesions
  • Facilitate defect closure
  • Expose polyps hidden behind folds

Dynamic retraction of mucosal tissue during procedures

  • New suture loops enhance visualisation of mucosal planes with Dynamic Retraction +DR™ capabilities
