Inflation Device

60cc Inflation Device BE-BIG60 USE: Once a BES has been diagnosed and traditionally balloon-dilated, the BE-Tube is placed similarly to a standard esophageal feeding tube (E-Tube) with some technical differences. The owner performs twice daily balloon dilations at home, in their unsedated pet, using predetermined air volumes. This tube can also provide supplementation of food, water and medications. While stricture dilation can be uncomfortable in humans, the initial stricture effacement would occur under the initial anesthetic episode so subsequent dilations would not be expected to be associated with discomfort. In between the daily dilation procedures, the balloon would be self-constrained permitting passage of normal food and liquid boluses. The BE-Tube is typically removed approximately 4-6 weeks later, often under general anesthesia, for repeat esophagoscopy to confirm stricture resolutions. It can also be removed in an awake patient.
