Medigus Says MUSE Procedure Used Successfully in Switzerland for GERD

Medigus said Tuesday that the first MUSE procedures were performed successfully in Switzerland at the Center for Digestive Diseases at Hirslanden Clinic in Aarau. “We are excited that MUSE is now being offered in Switzerland, expanding our availability in Europe,” said Chris Rowland, CEO of Medigus.

The MUSE system is a single-use flexible transoral stapler that merges the latest advancements in microvisual, ultrasonic and surgical stapling. The device comes equipped with an ultrasonic sight and range finder and a micro ScoutCam CMOS camera, which enables a single physician to perform an incisionless transoral fundoplication, a procedure used to treat the anatomical cause of gastroesophageal reflux disease.
