Date:5/3/2010

NEW ORLEANS, May 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Avantis Medical Systems, Inc., a technology leader in developing novel catheter-mounted digital imaging devices, today announced five new studies confirming that use of the Third Eye® Retroscope® during colonoscopy procedures increases detection of adenomas and polyps.  The studies showed that physicians, even with varying years of experience, were able to detect adenomas of all sizes in elderly and young patients using the Third Eye.  The studies were presented at the Digestive Disease Week® 2010 conference (DDW) taking place in New Orleans, May 1 - 5.  Avantis Medical is exhibiting at booth #647.

"These data confirm that the Third Eye Retroscope improves adenoma detection rates during colonoscopy, the current gold standard for colon cancer screening," said Jack Higgins, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Avantis Medical. "Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death and is easily preventable by removing pre-cancerous polyps, or adenomas, before they develop into cancer. These data, combined with an already large body of well-controlled clinical trial data, validate the Third Eye Retroscope's potential as an essential tool in colorectal cancer screening."  

In a study entitled, "Single-Center Evaluation Of The Third Eye Retroscope: A Back-To-Back Study," (M1513), Dr. Anke Leufkens, Universitair Medisch Centrum-Utrecht, Utrecht, The Netherlands, concluded that colonoscopy with the Third Eye Retroscope detected more polyps compared to colonoscopy alone.
