e-Stella innovation: precision, efficiency, reliability


E-Stella is a scoring tool to help decision making during a liver harvesting. With the support of Artificial Intelligence (AI), our technology allows to classify and measure with precision the steatosis rate of a liver, which is essential during a liver transplantation.

To date, E-Stella is available to provide a trust index to surgeons in order to facilitate decision making during liver transplantation*.

 

A future version is currently at the clinical evaluation phase, in cooperation with 3 AP-HP institutes: Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital, Paul-Brousse Hospital and Beaujon Hospital.

Because the safety and performance of our technologies are at the heart of our concerns, a pilot study is driven by five surgeons: Prof. Olivier Scatton, Dr. Claire Goumard, Prof. Eric Vibert, Dr. Nicolas Golse, and Prof. Olivier Soubrane.

E-Stella is also undergoing certification for CE and FDA marking as a Class IIa medical device under the new Regulation (EU) 2017/745 on medical devices.

Why choose e-Stella ?

For surgical teams

Provides a trust index on the reliability of the liver graft in real time.

Save time and efficiency by optimizing the work of the transplant teams.

Detects “marginal” transplantable livers, thus reducing the number of undiagnosed viable grafts.

For the health care facilities

Avoids expensive and risky travels for surgical teams and organ transporters. They will no longer have to travel without knowing the viability of the liver graft.

First scoring technology to support surgeons’ decision-making.

Avoids expensive and invasive procedures.

For the patients

Each patient waiting for a liver transplant can ask his or her surgeon to perform an evaluation of his or her future graft with E-Stella, in order to secure and maximize his or her post-operative recover.

Increases the number of transplants and grafts available.

To ensure transparent and ethical business conduct, Stella Surgical has collaborated with public research teams and world-renowned hospitals to provide conclusive scientific publications.

*E-Stella provides answers to the needs of healthcare teams, but is not currently considered as a medical device. Therefore, it is necessary to confirm the steatosis grade by performing a liver biopsy.
