Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy will be assessed by comparing NaviAid™ BGE Device performances to a reference Enteroscopy procedure in terms of depth of small intestine advancement and visualization. [ Time Frame: Within 6 months of completion of the trial ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety of the NaviAid™ BGE Device will be assessed by reporting adverse events, and by comparing to a reference Enteroscopy procedure. [ Time Frame: Within 6 months of completion of the trial ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Detailed Description:

Smart Medical Systems has developed the NaviAid™ Balloon Guided Endoscopy (BGE) Device, an innovative medical device for the GI tract diagnosis and treatment. The Balloon Guided Endoscopy (BGE) is a procedure intended for the examination of the small intestine, which utilizes the NaviAid™ BGE Device in conjunction with a standard endoscope.

The objectives of this prospective controlled study are to evaluate the safety and efficacy of using the NaviAid™ BGE device in the examination of the small intestine in conjunction with a standard endoscope.

Efficacy will be assessed by comparing NaviAid™ BGE Device performances to a reference Enteroscopy procedure.
