The Pitfalls Of Obesity Treatment

While scoring high on Total Body Weight Loss (TBWL%), gold-standard bariatric treatments are avoided by most patients and insurers, as these treatments are highly-invasive, may lead to significant adverse events, and often involve irreversible GI tract reconfigurations. In consequence, they are performed in less than 1% of the eligible population.

Alternatives such as intra-gastric balloons, while utilizing safer trans-oral access and being covered for lower-BMI patients, are temporary and achieve lower TBWL%. Endoscopic gastroplasty, which does provide much higher TBWL%, is an extremely cumbersome procedure that is generally inaccessible to patients and physicians alike.

About Nitinotes

Nitinotes is a privately-held medical device company based in Tel Aviv. Its flagship product is the endozip™, a novel gastroscopic solution for safer, simpler GI suturing. Backed by preclinical success and prominent KOLs, Nitinotes’s gastric volume restriction provides an effective, minimally-invasive solution to class 1 and 2 obesity patients, for the majority of whom gold-standard bariatric surgery is uncovered and/or inadvisable.

In a series of animal studies and ex-vivo tests on fresh human tissue remains from sleeve gastrectomy, endozip™ has shown promising results, with a reproducible technique. Recently, Nitinotes has successfully launched an FIH study in Spain, led by Dr. Lopez Nava, director of bariatric endoscopy at HM Sanchinarro University Hospital, Madrid.
