About Endologix, Inc.
Endologix, Inc. develops and manufactures minimally invasive treatments for aortic disorders. The Company's focus is endovascular stent grafts 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. Approximately 1.7 million Americans have AAA, and the incidence of the condition increases with age.
Endologix is currently marketing the AFX® Endovascular AAA System is available in the U.S., Europe, Latin America and other regions. The Nellix® EndoVascular Aneurysm Sealing System, a novel aneurysm sealing system, is approved for sale in Europe and other markets and for investigational use in the U.S. The Powerlink with IntuiTrak® Delivery System is available in Japan.
The technology is a minimally invasive device, allowing for greater patient comfort and quicker recovery compared to invasive surgical alternatives. Covered by 18 U.S. patents with 393 allowed claims, the technology is designed to overcome the significant shortcomings of first-generation ELGs.
Endologix is a publicly-held company trading on NASDAQ: ELGX. The Company's corporate office is located in Irvine, California.
