About Type II Intestinal Failure and Chyme Reinfusion Therapy
Type II intestinal failure is the inability of the gut to absorb necessary water, macronutrients, micronutrients, and electrolytes to sufficiently sustain life without intravenous supplementation or replacement. This can be due to malabsorption (small bowel mucosal disease), surgical resection (short bowel syndrome), fistulae, dysmotility, or mechanical obstruction. Under the standard care pathway, patients recovering from colorectal surgery often have an enterostomy created to divert intestinal contents (chyme) away from the surgical site as it heals. The enterostomy is typically left open for 6-12 months, and during this time the chyme that is collected is disposed of, which can result in intestinal failure and other complications. The Insides System is a purpose-built medical device for performing chyme reinfusion therapy. Chyme reinfusion is a practice in the management of patients with high-output enterocutaneous fistulas, and high-output enterostomies.
Théradial diversified itself over the past 25 years with the goal to offer innovative and differentiating medical technology and products to French patients. Théradial is guided by its mission: "Commitment to care" which is rooted in these 4 values: conviviality, listening, perseverance and innovation.
