The BleedClear™ System

>Products> The BleedClear System






Allows for quicker and more effective removal of coagulated blood masses during upper GI bleed treatments.



Upper GI Bleeds (UGIBs) are normally treated with minimally invasive surgery endoscopically. However, the presence of blood and clots reduces endoscopic visibility and limits diagnosis/treatment of the bleeding site. Actuated Medical developed the BleedClear System to allow clinicians treating UGIBs improved visualization.

Clears Clots for Improved Visibility

An actuated Suction Stem powered by a Handheld Driver inserted through the working channel of a standard endoscope rotates a Shearing Paddle at the Suction Inlet – breaking up the clotted material into fine pieces and aspirating, allowing for faster UGIB visualization and treatment.

In-vitro Efficacy testing using 200 mmHg applied suction pressure. Control: 3.63 mm open channel. N=10 trials/treatment. A) Success rate comparison. A successful trial is defined as the complete clearance of in-vitro porcine blood clot (starting size: ~60g) in 15 minutes or less, p < 0.01, 2 proportion test. B) Comparison of the calculated mean mass removal rate (mass removed/procedure time). Error bars indicate standard error of the mean, p < 0.05, Kruskal-Wallis test.

Key Advantages

The BleedClear System improves UGIB treatments by:

  • Increasing clot removal success.
  • Greater clot removal rate allows for faster visualization of bleed source.
  • Reduced need to withdraw and reinsert endoscope into patient.
