AUSTIN, TX, USA, May 27, 2018 / -- HyGIeaCare today announced that HyGIeaCare® Prep is highlighted in the Third Edition of Clinical Gastrointestinal Endoscopy authored by Vinay Chandrasekhara, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, B. Joseph Elmunzer, Peter B. Cotton Chair for Endoscopic Innovation, Associate Professor, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina, Mouen Khashab, Associate Professor, Department of Medicine-Gastroenterology, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland and V. Raman Muthusamy, Clinical Professor, Division of Digestive Disease, University of California at Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California, published by Elsevier (Hardcover ISBN: 9780323415095; eBook ISBN: 780323547925; eBook ISBN: 9780323547932).
HyGIeaCare® Prep is highlighted in Chapter 9 - Bowel Preparation for Colonoscopy by Parth J. Parekh MD, Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Tulane University, New Orleans LA, Edward C. Oldfield MD, Department of Internal Medicine, Eastern Virginia Medical School, Norfolk, VA and David A. Johnson MD, MACG, FASGE, FACP, Professor of Medicine and Chief of Gastroenterology, Eastern VA Medical School Norfolk VA.
The section described as “Future Direction of Bowel Preparation” states that Hygieacare Preparation provides an FDA-cleared colon lavage system to replace the traditional oral prep. Furthermore, it is stated that the HygieaCare Prep is private, uses low-pressure flow of warm water, is odorless, and effective. The patient undergoes their scheduled colonoscopy immediately after undergoing their prep, which offers a novel alternative to the traditional preparation overcoming several barriers to effective colonoscopy preparation (e.g. intolerance of large-volume oral purgatives).
“HyGIeaCare has set its target on creating a new standard of care for preparing patients for colonoscopy, and over 8,000 patients have chosen HyGIeaCare® Prep for their colonoscopy with 97% adequacy of prep and 95% patient willingness to repeat – with zero severe adverse events.” said Gavriel (Gabi) Meron, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, HyGIeaCare Inc. "Inclusion in the Third Edition of Clinical Gastrointestinal Endoscopy is a significant endorsement of this novel alternative.”
