Apollo Endosurgery Demonstrates Clinical Functionality of the Newly Launched OverStitch™ Endoscopic Suturing System in Bariatric Repairs and GI Therapy
Date:1/11/2011

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Apollo Endosurgery, Inc. announced preliminary results from their GEMINI suturing registry. These results confirm the procedure enabling capability of their newly-launched OveStitch™EndoscopicSuturing System in a variety of clinical cases in the esophagus, stomach and colon.

A unique device that mimics the way physicians deploy sutures by hand, the OverStitch system enables full-thickness endoscopic suturing on a flexible platform -- delivering a surgical standard of care through the flexible endoscope.

While preliminary results will be presented at the upcoming SAGES and DDW meetings, the company is reporting the successful completion of more than 60 procedures in the esophagus, stomach and colon over the last several weeks. These cases include stoma reductions, GI bleeds, repairs of fistulas, ulcers and other small defects.

Early procedures have been performed in several thought leading institutions including: Legacy Health Systems, Portland, OR; Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN; University of California San Diego, San Diego, CA; Johns Hopkins, Baltimore, MD; Brigham and Women's, Boston, MA; California Pacific Medical Center, San Francisco, CA. Dr. Christopher Thompson of Brigham and Women's Hospital noted: "The versatility of OverStitch is incredible--- it has allowed me the increased flexibility in these recent procedures to obtain results that in many cases would have been impossible to achieve without laparoscopic or open surgical intervention."

Dennis McWilliams, CEO and President for Apollo, states, "The OverStitch Endoscopic Suturing System has enabled many procedures that previously may have required more invasive treatment.  The OverStitch system's utility and breadth of clinical applications in endoscopic tissue apposition are a result of the control and simplicity of use demonstrated during these early cases. The system shows
