Food Impactions Made Simple

  • Piranha GI connects to the aspiration system in the treatment room and uses the pressure to core through the food impaction while pulling the food through the catheter an away from the patient.
  • The reduced surface area of the impaction allows it to evacuate normally through the esophagus and clear the field.

Design and Functionality

  • Custom molded handle for ease of handling that interfaces with the vacuum
  • Proximal 5” of shaft to add stiffness and push ability
  • Internal liner is Teflon coated providing a lubricious surface to facilitate food suction
  • Custom tip with beveled edges and increased stiffness aides in coring through the impaction
  • Non-Sterile, single patient use
