Recently, by development of double balloon and capsule endoscopes, small intestinal whole area observation was enabled. However, it is difficult to use these endoscopes in patients with intestinal obstruction and adhesion. We developed a new endoscope that can be used in patients with intestinal obstruction and adhesion; this instrument consists of an ileus tube and an optical fiberscope (diameter, 1.1mm). The complete observation of small intestinal is to be planned by controlling internal pressure of balloon in ileus tube, and pulling the tube out at constant speed. In our previous study, we have developed an internal pressure control device which consists of a balloon of ileus and an industrial cylinder, and we confirmed the utility. In this study, we developed a new control device combined with a general medical syringe, which enables to be sterilized easily and also to give less anxiety to patients. As the results of performance experiment of the device, the control accuracy was within ±0.5% error. Furthermore, in a disturbance response, the pressure fluctuation was limited down to 12%, compared with a case without any control.
