The 3CPM® Company’s Electrogastrogram (EGG) Machine is an analysis system that records, stores, displays and prints the myoelectric signals from the stomach as an aid to diagnosis of various gastric motility disorders. In particular, it allows the doctor to divide disorders of stomach motility into different subtypes based upon the EGG signal. Once the subtypes of disease are known, it is then possible to treat or even cure disorders like gastroparesis in a more personalized manner, ensuring successful treatment.
An EGG is a non-invasive test of gastric myoelectrical activity of the stomach. The EGG reflects the stomach’s pacesetter potential activities, much like the electrocardiogram (ECG) reflects electrical events occurring in the heart. The performance of an EGG does not require pre-medication and has no significant side effects.
The EGG is indicated for patients suffering from:
- Unexplained nausea, bloating, early satiety
- Unexplained dyspepsia
- Chronic GERD
A solution for a better patient outcome
- In the United Sates only, 40 million people suffer from gastroparesis.
- 28% of people suffering from gastroparesis can be cured by a simple endoscopic balloon dilation.
- The 3CPM® Company’s Electrogastrogram (EGG) Machine can predict 93% response to endoscopic pyloric balloon dilation.
