Mr. McDermott added, "We are well positioned in Europe with our AFX® and Nellix systems and look forward to potential CE Mark for our Ventana® product in the near future. We have received strong interest in all of these products from the medical community and believe that Endologix offers physicians the most innovative range of products to treat their AAA patients. We look forward to providing training and clinical support for these and other new technologies in 2013 and the years ahead."
About Endologix, Inc.
Endologix, Inc. (the "Company") develops and manufactures minimally invasive treatments for aortic disorders. The Company's focus is endovascular stent grafts for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). AAA is a weakening of the wall of the aorta, the largest artery in the body, resulting in a balloon-like enlargement. Once AAA develops, it continues to enlarge and, if left untreated, becomes increasingly susceptible to rupture. The overall patient mortality rate for ruptured AAA is approximately 75%, making it a leading cause of death in the U.S. Additional information can be found on Endologix's Web site at www.endologix.com.
