We were one of the first companies to have a three-stage balloon device that is indicated for use in the gastrointestinal tract. We’ve taken our proven technology one step further by creating the Hercules 100 Transnasal Esophageal Balloon–the first balloon designed for transnasal esophageal dilations.
A modification of the Hercules 3 Stage Balloon, that allows for transnasal and transoral esophageal dilation. The balloon is known for its P.E.T. Flex™ material, which combines strength and flexibility for accurate dilations without conforming to strictures.
The first balloon designed for transnasal esophageal dilations. These dilations can be performed in-office and the benefits may include decreased post-procedure recovery times, fewer complications, and potentially lower out-of-pocket expenses.*
With a transnasal indication and a 100 cm catheter length that is comparable to most transnasal endoscopes, this device was created to meet the specific needs of ENTs and the transnasal esophagoscopy (TNE) procedures they perform.
