Endologix Lifts Hold On Shipments Of AAA Devices

Executive Summary

The Dec. 29 announcement relating to non-EU shipments of AFX and some AFX2 AAA repair devices came two days after the company said it suspended shipments of its flagship system because a manufacturing issue was causing damage to some devices. The release of the hold allowed the company to end a difficult month on a positive note. Endologix announced the suspension of the CE mark for AFX and AFX2 in Europe earlier in December.
