xBar- Exero’s Solution
Converting Healing into Tangible Data
Exero Sensing Technology
xBar’s sensor array continuously records inflammation and motility markers to monitor healing. Here’s how.
Inflammation marker change (normalized to control electrode)
The tissue’s electrical properties can sense local inflammation.
Electrical inflammation markers indicate if there is mild, local inflammation, normal for properly healing tissue OR severe inflammation, possibly leading to a leak.
Motility markers indicate local hypoxia.
Motility markers are disrupted in hypoxic and ischemic conditions typical to a leak.
Accurate early diagnosis of a gastrointestinal anastomotic leak remains a challenge. When an anastomotic leak develops, the electrical properties of the tissue undergoing inflammatory processes change, resulting from the extravasation of inflammatory fluid and cellular infiltration.
Introduction: Postoperative abdominal sepsis is often a catastrophic event with huge clinical, organizational and economic impact.
Verification of adequate perfusion is essential to ensure anastomosis integrity following colonic resections. Perfusion monitoring intra and postoperatively is challenging, and existing methods are unable to provide reliable perfusion metrics over time.
