Indicated Applications

Pulsed Irrigation Evacuation or PIE* is a Class II Medical Device that works with the body to gently and comfortably evacuate stool from the colon. PIE* has become the treatment of choice for non-surgical acute fecal impaction removal from the colon. The PIE* device provides in-home routine bowel activity and maintenance for patients where traditional fecal evacuation programs are problematic or ineffective. The PIE* device has been clinically tested and proven safe and effective for long term use in pediatric as well as elderly patients. The PIE* device is the most advanced method for routinely removing stool from the colon. It provides patients a safe and effective non-surgical solution to their dysfunctional colon issues and offers the patient freedom from home confinement.
