Inventors: Philip Carullo, MD and Youngjae Chun, PhD Esophocclude Esophocclude is for patients requiring surgical care who have not had the opportunity to fast prior to receiving anesthesia, and therefore, at risk of aspiration. Aspiration during surgery can result in pneumonia, lung damage and inflammation. Esophocclude is an easily-administered oral device and unlike competing alternatives, is less invasive, faster-acting, and easier to administer.
