HyGIeaCare® Prep Offers Effective Same-day Salvage Prep for Patients with Poor Oral Prep – Poster at DDW 2018

Salvage HyGIeaCare® Prep Allows Patients to Complete Colonoscopy as Scheduled, Benefiting the Patient, the Endoscopist, and the Health Care Payers.

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, May 14, 2018 / -- HyGIeaCare today announced the presentation of a poster with data from a study that included 25 consecutive patients who presented for colonoscopy but were unable to complete their prescribed preparation or reported a poor response to their traditional oral preparation or failed to adhere to their prescribed oral preparation.

These patients preferred the HyGIeaCare® colonic irrigation alternative to rescheduling their procedure for another day. Each patient underwent a salvage HyGIeaCare colon irrigation prep within 2-3 hours of their scheduled colonoscopy.
Patient satisfaction was high, noting that 100% of the patients reported that they would choose HyGIeaCare® colonic irrigation for their next colonoscopy preparation.

Salvage HyGIeaCare® colonic irrigation allows for the patient to undergo their colonoscopy as scheduled, thus mitigating the burden of rescheduling colonoscopy due to failed oral prep - otherwise incurred to the individual patient, the endoscopist, and the health care system.

The Poster, submitted by Richard Sperling MD, Parth J. Parekh MD, Dawn Burleson RN, David A. Johnson MD MACG FASGE FACP, will be presented at Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) that will take place June 2 – 5, 2018, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center – Washington, DC.

“Over 8,000 patients have chosen HyGIeaCare® Prep for their colonoscopy with 97% adequacy of prep and 95% patient willingness to repeat – with zero severe adverse events.” said Gavriel (Gabi) Meron, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, HyGIeaCare Inc. "This poster highlights the additional benefit that our partners and patients enjoy, allowing those patients who chose oral prep and then found on the day of colonoscopy that they are inadequately prepped – to perform same day salvage pep at the HyGIeaCare® Center.”
