Interlace Medical Inc. launched a clinical trial of its MyoSure fibroid surgery device, aiming to prove that women experience little pain or discomfort during the procedure.
The Framingham, Mass.-based firm’s myomectomy system is a minimally invasive technique that allows for the removal of submucosal fibroids and polyps in a single, out-patient procedure. Submucosal fibroids are benign tumors that grow just beneath the endometrial lining of the uterus.
Interlace said the 40-subject study will enroll patients with intrauterine polyps and/or submucosal fibroids of 3cm or less and submit the results to a peer-reviewed journal for publication after the trial concludes in March 2010. The patients will undergo the MyoSure procedure under a mild oral sedative and a local anesthetic injected into the cervix.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
