Dr Liu’s research assessed patient experience, device performance and resulting clinical outcomes for high-output ileostomates, using The Insides® System to perform the automated process of chyme reinfusion.
The Insides® System is a purposed-built chyme reinfusion solution developed and provided by The Insides® Company.
The Scientific Award is presented at each CIRTA conference to researchers that have submitted abstracts of a high merit.
The Insides® Company would also like to congratulate the other winners: Mathias Clarysse; Cate Fraser-Irwin; Daniela Gattini; Natascha Silva Sandy; and Leandro Emmanuel Vecchio Dezillio, for their outstanding contributions to the research field of intestinal rehabilitation and transplantation.
Dr Liu said “I would like to thank the IRTA committee for the opportunity to present this presentation. I hope that this technology will be used more widely to help future patients with intestinal failure. I would also like thank The Insides Company, Emma Ludlow and my supervisors Professor Ian Bissett and Professor Greg O’Grady for facilitating this research. Lastly, thank you to the patients for taking the time to participate in the research. I look forward to contributing to more evidence in this field through the randomized clinical trial that we are currently conducting in loop ileostomy patients”
The Insides® Company sends its warmest congratulations to Dr Liu on receiving this internationally recognized award.
