Boston Scientific Acquires LumenR Tissue Retractor System
Boston Scientific has acquired the LumenR Tissue Retractor, which is currently in development for use during endoscopic resection of lesions in the colon, esophagus or stomach.
The device system is designed to improve endoscopic sub-mucosal dissection and endoscopic mucosal resection procedures, which are less invasive alternatives to conventional surgery for the removal of precancerous lesions and malignant tumors in the gastrointestinal tract.
Boston Scientific will integrate the LumenR system into its endoscopy development program, and conduct additional development and evaluation of the system prior to commercialization. — Cynthia Jessup
