Cook Medical’S Flourish Receives Authorization for Pediatric Esophageal Atresia
May 16 17
Cook Medical announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted the Flourish™ Pediatric Esophageal Atresia device authorization under the Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE) for the treatment of pediatric esophageal atresia. Esophageal atresia is a birth defect of the esophagus, the tubular structure connecting the mouth to the stomach, in which the upper portion of the esophagus does not connect to the lower portion of the esophagus and stomach. Surgery has traditionally been the only treatment option to repair the malformation until Dr. Mario Zaritzky, a pediatric radiologist at the University of Chicago Medical Center, and Cook collaborated on the development of a minimally invasive, magnet-based approach. The Flourish Pediatric Esophageal Atresia device uses rare earth magnets that are inserted into the upper and lower ends of the infant’s esophagus. Over the course of several days, the magnets gradually stretch both ends of the esophagus, after which the tissue connects to form an intact esophagus. To date, 16 patients have been successfully treated with this device. The Flourish Pediatric Esophageal Atresia Device received a Humanitarian Use Device (HUD) designation and was reviewed through the HDE pathway. A HUD treats or diagnoses a disease or condition affecting fewer than 4,000 individuals in the United States per year. In order to receive this type of authorization, a company must demonstrate, among other things, safety and probable benefit, i.e., that the device will not expose patients to an unreasonable or significant risk of illness or injury, and that the probable benefit of the device outweighs the risk of illness or injury. In addition there can be no legally-marketed comparable devices, other than another HDE, available to treat or diagnose the disease or condition.
Cook Medical Introduces New Two-In-One Wire Guide
Jan 5 17
Cook Medical introduced new two-in-one wire guide called Motion hybrid wire guide for urologists. The new wire guide aggregates nitinol access wire guide and Teflon fixed core wire guide in a single device. Motion hybrid wire guide will enable urologists to use two different types of wire guides, including access wire guide and safety wire guide, in a single procedure. The new wire guide will help clinicians to streamline their procedures by reducing multiple wire guide exchanges during a procedure. The company has designed new Motion wire guide to offer access and control during a procedure with one wire. Its kink-resistant nitinol core and flexible nitinol tip with hydrophilic coating will allow to place wire guide to establish access. According to the company, the new wire guide's body is Teflon-coated and constructed with tightly-wound stainless steel to allow passage of instruments and provide control during the procedure.
