Israeli medical device startup Endo GI Medical earned FDA approval for its stenting placement delivery system after submitting its new application to the agency in January.
The Jerusalem Post reported on the approval. The company plans to pivot its effort to earning approval from the Israeli Health Ministry. Once it earns the ministry's approval, it'll start marketing the technology in both countries.
The device allows clinicians to insert stents simultaneously to bile ducts connected to the pancreas, which could reduce infection risk.
