EndoGastric Solutions Rewrites Playbook In Bid To Build GERD Business

Executive Summary

Founded in 2001, EndoGastric Solutions Inc., a mature medical device company with $140 million in venture backing, hasn’t been able to secure a reliable source of reimbursement dollars for its EsophyX endoscopic treatment for GERD. Under new management, EGS is recommitting itself to collecting necessary clinical data and operating as a lean start-up as it makes its case for coverage and reimbursement with insurers.

Torax Medical’s Linx System: A New Approach To GERD

Although many companies have fallen short in developing a truly effective minimally invasive device for the treatment of chronic GERD, Torax Medical’s co-founder, president, and CEO Todd Berg believes the company’s new Linx Reflux Management System will find success because it is fundamentally unlike anything else that has come before. In an interview with Medtech Insight, Berg discussed the Linx device, the GERD market, and the company’s strategies for success.

Mederi Therapeutics Inc.

Two distinct and effective radiofrequency medical devices to treat two prevalent digestive system disorders have been resurrected in an improved configuration, after the bankruptcy of their original manufacturer. Stretta for gastroesophageal reflux disease and Secca for bowel incontinence were first launched by Curon Medical, which went out of business in 2006. Mederi Therapeutics Inc. acquired the assets and is once again offering these two clinically proven therapies using a new RF generator and redesigned disposables.
