Endologix Announces FDA Approval of AFX™ Endovascular AAA System
Date:6/15/2011

IRVINE, Calif., June 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Endologix, Inc. (Nasdaq: ELGX), developer and marketer of minimally invasive treatments for aortic disorders, announced today that it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for its next generation product, the AFX™ Endovascular AAA System, for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA).  Endologix is introducing AFX at the Annual Meeting of the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS), which is taking place June 16-18, 2011 in Chicago, IL.  

AFX builds upon Endologix's clinically proven anatomical fixation technology with  a new low profile, highly precise delivery system and a state of the art, proprietary stent graft material (STRATA™).  The key features of the AFX System include:

  • Low profile 17Fr introducer sheath – The entire family of AFX stent grafts, which range in diameter from 13 to 34 millimeters, are delivered through a low profile, hydrophilically-coated 17Fr  introducer sheath – obviating the need for exchanges. Notably, this sheath technology, combined with the System's percutaneous (9Fr) contralateral access, makes AFX the lowest profile device approved in the U.S. for the treatment of the most common AAAs – those with aortic neck diameters of 22 millimeters or larger.
  • Precise delivery and deployment – The AFX delivery system features an ergonomic dial mechanism that provides physicians with precise, controlled stent graft positioning and deployment.  These features were designed with significant input from endovascular specialists globally.  
  • STRATA expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) graft – AFX stent grafts are constructed using Endologix's proprietary new STRATA graft material. STRATA is a durable, highly conformable material featuring enhanced stent graft sealin
