INJECTABLE BULKING AGENT FOR GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX DISEASEe (GERD)
Durasphere GR injectable bulking agent, is indicated for endoscopic injection into the lower esophageal sphincter for the treatment GERD in men and women. These injections should only be initiated in patients who have documented symptoms of GERD. Durasphere GR is composed of pyrolytic carbon-coated beads suspended in a water-based gel.
HOW IT WORKS
Durasphere can be injected into your lower esophagus in a comparable way as having an endoscopic procedure. When Durasphere GR Injectable Bulking agent is injected, the body forms a tissue layer around the carbon-coated beads in hopes of reducing the backflow of stomach content that cause symptoms of heartburn.
