USGI medical tissue anchors show durability beyond 1 year
Date:9/13/2010

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (September 13, 2010) USGI Medical, Inc., the Incisionless Surgery company, today announced that updated multi-center results confirm durability of the company's Expandable Tissue Anchors up to a year or more in a variety of incisionless gastrointestinal (GI) procedures, including use of a ROSE procedure (Repair of Surgery, Endolumenal) to repair dilated tissue after gastric bypass.

These findings, which demonstrate long-term, secure tissue approximation with this scarless "through the mouth" approach in the largest cohort of patients ever reported, underscore the utility of the company's Incisionless Operating Platform (IOP) and these anchors for durably suturing GI tissue.

Surgeon Peter Denk, MD presented the results to an international audience as part of the scientific program at IFSO 2010, the annual meeting of the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders, which took place in Long Beach, Calif. from September 3 to 7.

"Stomach tissue is extremely resistant to change and showing long-term durability of procedures utilizing endoscopic sutures or staples has proven difficult," said Dr. Denk, who operates out of the Lehigh Regional Medical Center in Fort Myers, Florida. "A special suture design that spreads forces and can adapt with the patient's anatomy is necessary when anchoring tissue from inside the stomach or GI tract. These results demonstrate durability of these expandable tissue anchors for over a year, offering surgeons a feasible approach when performing numerous incisionless GI procedures through the mouth."

Surgeons across the U.S. and in the European Union are using the IOP to perform ROSE in a number of applications, including repair of dilated stomach pouches and stomas after gastric bypass surgery, repair of gastro-gastric fistulas (a common complication that arises after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass), and slipped Nissen fundoplications for GERD.
