Solar GI HRM

High Resolution Manometry for diagnosis of swallowing disorders and esophagus pressure measurement.

Solar GI HRM

- Overview

High Resolution Manometry

The Solar GI HRM is the most advanced HRM system on the market. Latest developments such as the Chicago Classification criteria, QuickView analysis program, 3D Esophageal Pressure Topography (EPT) and new catheter technology make Solar GI HRM:

  • Extremely easy to use
  • Procedures more accurate and reliable
  • Data analysis better, simpler and quicker
  • Procedure costs lower

High Resolution Manometry (HRM) is the latest approach of measuring pressures in the esophagus. The Solar GI HRM system simplifies clinical procedures and offers fast and accurate diagnostic reports. Up to 36 closely spaced pressures, capture the entire esophageal motor function from the pharynx to the stomach. Visual sphincter recognition makes accurate sphincter location so easy that specialized technical training is no longer required.

With Solar GI HRM, studies can be performed with either reusable solid state or single-use/reusable water-perfused catheters. This offers maximum flexibility in system configuration set-up, clinical solution, investment and procedure costs.

+ Benefits

Unique QuickView Software program to make HRM analysis more accurate, fast and easy.

  • All events will be displayed automatically on the screen, providing a quick overview of the study.
  • For each event, HRM results will be automatically calculated.
  • Automatic classification of each swallow, and overall study classification Chicago Classification 3.0.
  • 360 degrees tube view and 3D esophageal pressure topography (EPT) plots for a new perspective on events.

HRM Studies in Less Than 10 Minutes:

  • Easy positioning HRM catheter makes the esophageal manometry examination so simple that consistent high-quality measurements will always be achieved.

Flexible Clinical Solutions:

  • Variety of catheter diameters, to ensure accurate HRM measurement for different patient groups.
  • Single use and reusable catheter solutions (solid-state and water-perfused, both up to 36 pressure channels).
  • Flexible HRM system solutions for every budget.

Extended Functionalities (optional):

  • Synchronized video manometry optional (X-ray, C-Arm, ultrasound).
  • LABORIE offers HRM/HRIM applications covering the whole tract, such as Small Bowel / Antroduodenum (HRSM), Colon (HRCM), and Anal sphincter (HRAM).
  • HRM / HRIM can also be combined with synchronized video recording capabilities

+ Clinical Information

High Resolution Manometry

High Resolution Manometry (HRM) is a new approach of measuring pressures in the esophageal body and presentation of the results. This method consists of measuring multiple pressures simultaneously, allowing detailed assessment of all relevant data for the whole esophagus. HRM solutions for antroduodenum, small bowel and colon are available as well.

Besides the conventional displays, rapid data interpretation via Clouse contour plots can be established. The Clouse contour plot display offers more information than the traditional pressure curves and is still easier to analyze due to the recognition of typical patterns. LABORIE offers 36 pressures solid state and 22 pressure channels water-perfused HRM solutions.

HRM Advantages:

  • Improved understanding of the motility peristaltic pressure waves.
  • Prevent misdiagnosis of achalasia (pseudo relaxation of the LES).
  • Perform UES/LES investigations (also with water-perfused catheters).

Clinical Applications of HRM:

  • High Resolution Esophagus Manometry (HRM)
  • High Resolution Impedance Manometry (HRIM)
  • High Resolution Anorectal Manometry (HRAM)
  • High Resolution Manometry combined with Video

High Resolution Manometry can be used to measure peristalsis in the esophagus (HR(E)M) and to assess the apparatus and defecation provided by the anal sphincter (HRAM). HRM can also be combined with impedance measurement (HRIM) and/or video images and cineloops to view the swallows and bolus movement in the esophagus.

LABORIE is passionate about bringing freedom and dignity to patients suffering from gastroenterological diseases and disorders through innovation in diagnostic and treatment options. We work with leading clinician-researchers and local universities to incorporate the most recent advancements and technical knowledge into our products while reflecting practical realities of the typical GI clinic.
