One of the most common complaints faced by both primary care physicians and gastroenterologists is constipation, affecting up to 60 million of the general population in the US. At an individual level, constipation can have a dramatic impact on the patient’s overall well-being, including anxiety, depression, somatization, sexual dysfunction, and time lost off work. A national survey, which included 10,030 respondents found that up to 72% of patients with constipation felt that their constipation was very to extremely bothersome. At the macro level, studies have found a recent surge of emergency department visits for constipation-related issues, with an increase in more than 40% over a 5-year period with an associated 120% increase in aggregate national costs over the same timeframe with an aggregate cost in excess of $1.6 billion dollars. Estimates suggest that upwards of $800 million dollars are spent annually on over-the-counter laxatives. For severe constipation, it is expected that HygieaCare relief is an easier, safer and significantly less expensive alternative to gastrograffin enemas, which are routinely performed by radiologists with an X-ray. Healthcare providers feel the frustration as well, and many health care providers perceive inadequate treatment in the majority of their patients.

The HyGIeaCare® System may provide relief to chronic constipation via a multi-faceted approach by (1) cleansing the bowel without the need for aggressive medical therapy or manual and/or surgical intervention, and (2) theoretically altering the microbiome with the hopes of repopulating a more favorable microbial profile. The primary endpoint of the procedure in the study was successful passage of stool during colonic irrigation with secondary endpoints being patient satisfaction and a favorable side effect profile. The results of the study show that the HyGIeaCare® System cleansing was successfully completed in all 175 patients. 100% of these patients had solid stool excrement and displayed a definitive removal of fecal obstructing debris compared to traditional therapy. HyGIeaCare® Relief may have a lasting effect that goes beyond immediate relief. Recent studies have demonstrated that alterations in the microbiome could result in or propagate chronic constipation. Thus, high volume irrigation may alter the microbiome in ways that could potentially promote growth of more favorable bacteria resulting in longer lasting relief. Future studies are needed to study the longevity of response duration.
