FoodMarble AIRE Shown to Exceed the Performance of ‘Gold Standard’ SIBO Testing in Clinical Trial

SIBO is a very common disorder where there are excessive bacteria present in the small intestine. The true prevalence of SIBO in the general population is largely unknown, with some studies estimating its occurrence in up to 15% of healthy individuals. It is also largely associated with many other common clinical conditions, including irritable bowel syndrome, where 40-80% of IBS patients have SIBO.

 

Portfolio of endovascular stent graft systems, Altura® and Aorfix™ announced at London, United Kingdom, conference

Lombard Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVAR), a developer, manufacturer and marketer of endovascular aortic aneurysm repair products, today announced that its portfolio of endovascular stent graft systems, Altura® and Aorfix™, were featured in scientific presentations at the 39th annual Charing Cross International Symposium in London on April 25 – 26.

Altura Presentations

Altura clinical data combined from two prospective international multicentre studies were presented at Charing Cross in a paper titled ‘A new low-profile device approach – results out to 5 years’ by Prof. Dainis Krievins, of the Paul Stradins University Hospital, Riga, Latvia, on behalf of the study investigators.

Key findings of the 90-patient dataset were as follows:

  • Technical success was 99%
  • Percutaneous access was achieved in 57% of patients
  • Only 21% of patients required general anaesthesia
  • There were no abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA)-related deaths over the period of follow-up
  • No patients suffered sac expansion
  • Mean follow-up of 12.4 months

Prof. Krievins commenting on the results said, “Altura is impressively easy to use based on its 14Fr profile, repositionability and avoidance of cannulation. The performance of the stent graft, as demonstrated in the clinical data, is equivalent to contemporary grafts that do not share these advantages.”

In a second presentation about the clinical utility of Altura, Paul Hayes, vascular surgeon at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge, UK, used a video case study to demonstrate the ease of use of the system. Hayes cited Altura’s unique retrograde limb deployment with built-in contrast injection in aiding predictable, shorter, procedure times.

Lombard is initiating a European registry for the CE-marked Altura system which is now available commercially in the U.K. and certain other international markets. The Altura system represents a paradigm shift in endograft design offering a simple and predictable option for standard AAA anatomy. Delivered via an ultra-low profile 14F catheter, Altura allows for repositioning during deployment and accurate graft placement at each renal artery enabling physicians to utilize all of the available aortic neck. It also eliminates the need for cannulation that results in a simple, safe and consistent deployment with predictable, shorter procedure times. With just six product sizes, the Altura system allows the majority of patients to be treated quickly with minimal hospital stay and recovery times.
