WHAT DOES STRETTA MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Stretta procedure

Stretta procedure is a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease. A catheter is used to deliver radio frequency energy to the lower esophageal sphincter, muscle and gastric cardia. The use of radiofrequency energy to augment the LES was pioneered by Utley. The Stretta system, manufactured by the California-based company cofounded by Utley, gained Food and Drug Administration approval in 2000. Stretta is an outpatient procedure performed with the patient under intravenous conscious sedation. The radiofrequency energy is delivered by a four-channel generator while impedance and tissue temperature are monitored to avoid mucosal injury. The device shuts down if the impedance is more than 1000 ohms, the muscle temperature exceeds 100°C, or the mucosal temperature exceeds 50°C. The flexible catheter has a 30-Fr bougie tip and a balloon basket assembly with four 22-gauge, 5.5-mm-long, radially placed electrodes. The catheter also has one channel for suction and another for irrigation with cool water to keep mucosal temperature below 50°C.
