LiNA Medical USA and FEMSelect have announced the U.S. launch of FEMSelect’s EnPlace pelvic floor ligament fixation system. The EnPlace patented delivery system enables the precise guidance, insertion and deployment of a small, nitinol anchor for pelvic floor ligament fixation. The approach is performed with minimal dissection and no mesh. This nationwide launch will now enable access to the technology across the US for both pelvic floor repair surgeons and the applicable patients who have not had this option available previously.
“We are pleased to offer the EnPlace system nationwide following months of preparations and productive training meetings for our sales force,” said Lars Melbye, President of LiNA Medical USA. “LiNA has been impressed with market feedback in the initial pilot territories and is looking forward to offering the EnPlace system to qualified surgeons across the US who are looking for a system to enable a minimally invasive approach for their apical pelvic organ prolapse patients.”
“Studies show that nearly 50% of women over the age of 50 have pelvic organ prolapse. In the US, that would equate to 30 million women yet only 3 million women are diagnosed and only 15% of them are treated as there is no minimally invasive option. With the guidance of LiNA’s sales team, we look forward to the EnPlace innovation reaching women across the US,” said Debbie Garner, Co-CEO of FEMSelect.
