LSO Medical to Unveil SnakeBack® Technology

LSO Medical announced today plans to unveil their newly engineered endovenous therapy technology SnakeBack® at the 2017 MEDICA show in Dusseldorf Nov. 13-Nov. 17 (Hall 10, B74). Show attendees will be the first to see prototype of the Plug&Treat OR designed system SnakeBack®, to perfectly standardize and automatize endovenous energy delivery.

Endovenous Treatment for the elimination of unhealthy varicose veins has become the gold-standard for minimally invasive treatment of varicose vein, with now hundreds thousands procedures performed in the world every year. Laser and radiofrequency catheters with manual operation are commonly used during this procedure.

In order to make the laser procedures simpler, LSO Medical focused its R&D efforts in ergonomy and standardization of current endovenous procedure, with objective to "freeing" physician from withdrawals. Thanks to its unique conception, the SnakeBack® technology ensures an automatic removal of the catheter, without the need for catheter tension or device alignment with the leg to be treated. The patented technology SnakeBack device appears as the next generation of the actual pull-back devices, bypassing their constraints.

"We took a big step forward with SnakeBack® in terms of procedure standardization and ergonomicsSnakeBack. A key objective for showing our new technology at MEDICA is to gauge industry interest in this concept as we are working to commercialize new devices with such technology next year," said Philippe ROCHON, President, LSO medical.
