In 2005 the EsoSure Esophageal Retractor was invented by an EP nurse, Steve Miller, after a patient in his department was diagnosed and treated for an injured esophagus following his AFib Ablation. The patient spent 5 days in the ICU, was followed up aggressively, and was one of the lucky few who survived as the mortality rate for atrial esophageal fistulas is around 80%.
It took ten years of patent work, FDA hurdles, testing on cadavers, two animal studies (at a very famous research facility), researching, redesigning, looking for a manufacturing company to help take the final steps, self inserting 4 more OG tubes and self-testing 16 additional retractors before releasing the first device. The EsoSure has now been available for 5 years and used over 20,000 times to move the esophagus.
If nurse Steve can do this, so can you. Don’t allow limits to be placed on your potential.
