Amsel Medical Corporation Announces Clearance of a 510(k) Pre-Marketing Notification by the US Food and Drug Administration for the Amsel Endo Occluder Device
Amsel Medical Corporation today announced clearance of a Pre-Marketing Notification (510(k)) by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Amsel Endo Occluder. The Pre-Market Notification is the third 510(k) clearance1 received by the company for its family of Amsel Occluder Devices2.
About the Amsel Endo Occluder
Amsel Endo Occluder device is intended to be used during endoscopic procedures (such as Laparoscopic procedures), for permanent secure occlusion of blood vessels and tubular (ductal) structures. The device is a mechanical occlusion clip delivered through a fine needle that when deployed transfixes the target vessel while clamping it shut. The Amsel Endo Occluder device is an endoscopic ligating clip applier and clips, which is intended for use on tubular structures or vessels wherever a metal ligating clip is indicated and within the size range of 2.0mm to 7.0mm diameter.
Arnold Miller, MD, Founder and President of Amsel Medical Corporation commented, “We are thrilled to expand the Amsel Occluder family of single-use, site-specific vascular control devices into the endoscopic and minimally invasive surgery market with this recent Pre-Marketing Notification (510(k)) by the US Food and Drug Administration. The Amsel Occluder possesses the ability to transfix and ligate a selected vessel or duct. We anticipate significant clinical interest for this innovative technology in the markets where the Amsel Occluder Device is cleared for commercial distribution.”
About the Endoscopic Market
Conventional minimally invasive surgical systems includes techniques such as laparoscopy and endoscopy. Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure which is used to examine the internal organs inside the abdomen3. Endoscopy allows both operations on more fragile patients, notably the elderly, and the treatment of more complex diseases, such as cancer. Other benefits of endoscopy include reduced post-operative pain and risks of complications, rapid healing, lighter anesthesia and a shorter period of hospital stay. Surgery, interventional radiology, and advanced endoscopy have all developed minimally invasive techniques to effectively treat a variety of diseases to bring about a positive impact on patients' postoperative outcomes. The global market for specialty endoscopic surgery products totaled approximately $5.8B in 2016, with the US comprising 48.2% of sales (or $2.8B)4. The global market for specialty endoscopic surgery products is forecast to grow at a 4.6% CAGR, reaching $7.8B in 20214. The global endoscopy equipment market was valued at USD 24.32B in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 34.82B by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.4% during the forecast period5.
