IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Endologix, Inc. (Nasdaq:ELGX), developer and marketer of innovative treatments for aortic disorders, announced today the presentation of positive 3-year clinical data from the Ovation European Post Market Registry at the 2017 Leipzig Interventional Course (LINC Symposium) in Leipzig, Germany. The results were presented by Patrick Peeters, MD, Chief, Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Imelda Hospital, Bonheiden, Belgium and investigator for the study.
The Ovation European Post Market Registry included a total of 501 patients, enrolled across 30 European centers from May 2011 to December 2013. Through three years of follow-up, key highlights of the study results included:
- Broadest range of patient applicability on IFU of all commercially available infrarenal endovascular AAA devices
- 99% freedom from aneurysm-related mortality
- 99% freedom from migration, rupture, and conversion
- 97% freedom from Type I/III endoleak
- Excellent freedom from secondary intervention for occlusion (97%), Type I endoleak (97%) and Type II endoleak (95%)
Professor Dierk Scheinert, MD, study Principal Investigator and Chairman of the LINC Symposium commented, "This study confirms the ability of the Ovation platform to successfully
treat a broad array of patient anatomies with a high rate of treatment success and freedom from secondary intervention through mid-term follow-up. We are pleased to have revealed these impressive results at our scientific symposium this year."
John McDermott, Chief Executive Officer of Endologix, said, "The addition of these European results continue to validate the excellent clinical results and durability of the ultra-low profile Ovation platform, further confirming the recently announced 5-year Ovation IDE study results with real-world commercial data. We would like to thank Dr. Scheinert, Dr. Peeters, and all of the investigators for their participation in this important clinical study and congratulate them for their outstanding results."
The LEIPZIG INTERVENTIONAL COURSE is strongly committed to contribute to a systematic scientific evaluation and interdisciplinary discussion of new methods, allowing conclusions for daily interventional practice. LINC is an interdisciplinary live course, designed to provide a global platform, permitting the discussion of the vascular patients by integrating colleagues of different specialties who are performing endovascular interventions. http://www.leipzig-interventional-course.com/
Endologix, Inc. develops and manufactures minimally invasive treatments for aortic disorders. The Company's focus is endovascular stent grafts for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). AAA is a weakening of the wall of the aorta, the largest artery in the body, resulting in a balloon-like enlargement. Once AAA develops, it continues to enlarge and, if left untreated, becomes increasingly susceptible to rupture. The overall patient mortality rate for ruptured AAA is approximately 80%, making it a leading cause of death in the United States.
