Endologix Logo

Endologix is a developer and manufacturer of minimally invasive treatments for vascular diseases. Endologix is focusing on the development and marketing of its patented technology for the treatment of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAA). An aneurysm is a weakening of the wall of the aorta, the largest artery of the body. Aortic aneurysm disease is a cause of death in the United States and it is estimated that 1.7 million persons over 55 years of age have an AAA. Each year, physicians diagnose approximately 200,000 people in the United States with AAA. Endologix is currently marketing its Powerlink Delivery System a, one-piece endoluminal stent graft (ELG) used in treating AAA that has significant advantages when compared with marketed stent alternatives. Powerlink has been commercially available in Europe since 1999. FDA approval for the Powerlink AAA stent graft was received on October 29, 2004. The Powerlink superior design is covered by 17 U.S. patents with 361 allowed claims; the technology is designed to overcome shortcomings of first-generation ELGs. The device is for sale in the United States and selected international markets. Endologix is a publicly-held company trading on NASDAQ: ELGX. The company's corporate office is located in Irvine, California.


Satiety, Inc. is a medical device company focused on the development of less invasive devices for the treatment of obesity. Obesity is a global health problem, affecting 70 million people in the U.S. and 300 million worldwide, and growth of which is causing increases in obesity-related diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. Obesity surgery has been shown to be the only long-term effective means of weight loss for morbidly obese patients. Satiety's first product, the TOGA System, enables physicians to perform a procedure similar to traditional restrictive obesity surgeries, but without surgical incisions. In this procedure, the TOGA System devices are inserted transorally (through the mouth) and are used to reduce the capacity of the stomach to give patients a feeling of fullness after a small meal. The procedure is intended to be safer and easier for patients to tolerate than conventional obesity surgery. Safety and effectiveness of the TOGA System are currently being evaluated in a multi-center U.S. Study and the system is not available for sale in the United States.

Varix Medical

Varix Medical Corporation, located in Sunnyvale, Calif., is a medical device company focused on developing products for the minimally invasive treatment of chronic venous insufficiency, commonly referred to as "varicose veins." For patients with advanced stages of varicose veins, laser- and RF-based (radiofrequency) treatments have been developed, but each device has deficiencies making them less-than-optimal solutions. Varix Medical's platform technology will enable physicians to efficiently and effectively treat more types of diseased veins than is currently possible when using either laser or RF devices. Additional treatable vessels include tortuous sub-truncal vessels and other visible smaller varicose veins. The Varix platform employs a vapor-based endovenous ablation system that will consist of a disposable catheter, a catheter introducer or delivery system, and a reusable vapor generator. RCT and Coronis Medical Ventures LLC., formed Varix in August 2007 and acquired the technology under license from Tsunami MedTech LLC. Coronis and RCT have been the primary in investors in Varix.

Emphasys Medical

Emphasys Medical has developed an innovative device called the Emphasys Endobronchial Valve* (EBV). The EBV is implanted in the diseased portions of the lung and utilizes a one-way valve to prevent air from entering the diseased lung segments during inhalation yet allows trapped air to vent during exhalation. This design is intended to allow inhaled air to be redirected to the healthier, functional parts of the lung. The Emphasys procedure is a minimally invasive treatment option in which the device is placed in selectively targeted areas of the affected lung determined by the extent of the emphysema damage.


DuoCure offers intraluminal minimally invasive implantable device for treatment of obesity.

NeoChord Logo

NeoChord is a medical technology company engaged in the advancement of beating heart mitral valve repair in patients suffering from mitral valve regurgitation.
