Advanced Bionics wins FDA nod for HiFocus Slimj cochlear implant electrode
Advanced Bionics said late last week it won FDA approval for its HiFocus SlimJ electrode designed for use with the company’s HiRes Ultra cochlear implant. The Valencia, Calif.-based company touts the new electrode as featuring a thin, straight design for easier insertion during procedures and a slim profile to protect the delicate structures of the cochlea during insertion. “The HiFocus SlimJ electrode addresses the surgeon need for an alternate type of electrode whilst still offering full spectrum coverage and maintaining the performance potential of the individual. And surgeons have commented that it is easy ...

Is There Hope for an Endologix Comeback?
A year ago, Endologix CEO John McDermott walked into the VEITHsymposium at the New York Hilton-Midtown, saw the look on the face of his head of regulatory and clinical affairs as he approached the Endologix booth, and knew something was wrong. Sure enough, FDA had just asked Endologix to provide two-year patient follow-up data from its EVAS-FORWARD study of the Nellix endovascular aneurysm sealing (EVAS) system. "So that night we worked through the night to get out our press release first thing the next morning to inform the world that there was going to be pushback in the timeline and the clinical requirements,&...

Danny ’s journey to a biventricular heart
The first hint that something wasn’t quite right with Danny Sanchez-Garcia’s heart came at his mom’s six-month prenatal visit. “There was a little blip on the ultrasound, but then it was gone on the next one, so they didn’t think it was anything and I didn’t worry any more about it,” says Danny’s mom, Cynthia. Cynthia was overjoyed when Danny was born at her local hospital seeming perfectly healthy. But as the hospital staff monitored Danny overnight, they noticed his oxygen level was lower than normal and decided to run more tests. His doctors believed the tests pointed to a...

Stryker wins FDA HDE nod or Neuroform Atlas wide-neck aneurysm stent
Stryker (NYSE:SYK) said today it won humanitarian device exemption from the FDA for its Neuroform Atlas stent system designed to be used with neurovascular embolic coils to treat wide neck, intracranial, saccular aneurysms. The newly HDE-cleared Neuroform Atlas is a nitinol stent designed to be used with metal coils to pack aneurysms in the brain. The system is positioned through a small tube and delivered across the neck of the aneurysm to support and pack it, the company said. Wide neck aneurysms are estimated to represent less than 10% of unruptured aneurysms treated. “The Neuroform Atlas Stent System is...
