About EndologixEndologix, Inc. develops and manufactures minimally invasive treatments for aortic disorders.  The Company's flagship product is the Powerlink® System, which is an endovascular stent graft 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 75%, making it a leading cause of death in the U.S.  Additional information can be found on Endologix's Web site at
