An endoscopically implantable tubular prosthesis that lines the duodenum
The Trans-Duodenal Barrier is an endoscopically implantable tubular prosthesis made of polyurethane that lines the duodenum and fixes itself to the gastric outlet with two air-filled balloons.
It is inserted during a gastroscopy (gastroscopy) and removed again after 12 months. Similar to bypass surgery, this improves diabetes and reduces weight.
There is a wide gap between the often ineffective conservative treatment through “lifestyle modification” (diet, exercise, nutritional counseling) and the highly invasive and irreversible treatment through bariatric surgery.
Transduodenal Concepts closes this gap in diabetes therapy, the treatment of fatty liver disease and obesity treatment by combining an innovative endoscopic technique with ultra-thin polyurethane balloons.
Following clinical studies, CE certification and multicenter PM studies, we plan to have the Trans-Duodenal Barrier ready for the market in 2027.
A reversible and safe therapy for diabetes patients
We would like to offer those affected who are at an earlier stage of the disease a reversible therapy in which a tube prosthesis is anchored in the stomach and upper small intestine as part of an outpatient gastroscopy.
We want to offer a safe, effective and easy-to-use product that closes the gap between the conservative forms of therapy available to date and irreversible surgery.
