Thread: Peristeen cleared by FDA

  1. #1

    Peristeen cleared by FDA

    According to the FDA website here: http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/SCRIPT...pmn&id=K083770

    it looks to me like Peristeen was approved by the FDA on November 23, 2009.

    When do you think it will be available for use in the United States?

    This could make a tremendous difference in people's lives, right?

    I will try to find out from our Conveen/Convatec rep.

    What does it do? Is it like a enema or something?

    Yes, like an enema, but more like a low-tech (and cheaper) PIEE. Here is a link to some information about it:

    Does this work instantly or is there a wait time like using a suppository? I be all over this if this can cut my bowel procedure to half the time or even less.

    I talked today to the head of marketing for the company, and they said it will probably be available in the USA sometime late this coming summer. Will post more info as I receive it.

    It works at once. It usually takes less than ten minutes to empty.
