IRVINE, Calif. October 24, 2023— Endologix LLC, a privately held, global medical device company dedicated to providing disruptive therapies for the interventional treatment of vascular disease, proudly announces recent awards and nominations for its groundbreaking DETOUR System.
Percutaneous Transmural Arterial Bypass (PTAB) with the DETOUR System offers a novel approach to treating complex PAD, enabling physicians to bypass lesions in the superficial femoral artery, by using conduits routed through the femoral vein via a transmural passage, to restore blood flow to the leg. This approach is effective for patients with long lesions (20cm-46cm in length).
The DETOUR System has recently been nominated for the prestigious Prix Galien USA Award in the category of Best Medical Technology. The Prix Galien USA, since its inception in 2007, has been America’s preeminent accolade celebrating the frontier of scientific innovation in the life sciences.
This nomination follows closely on the heels of Endologix’s win at the Octane OC High Tech Awards in September, where the company was awarded the title of “Best Innovation in Medical Technology.”
“These prestigious awards and nominations underscore our team’s unwavering commitment to patient care through the innovative spirit of Endologix. This recognition highlights our relentless drive to pioneer solutions that make a positive difference for patients with disabling vascular disease.” said Matt Thompson, MD, President, and CEO of Endologix.
