Approval from the respective ethics committee is mandatory for the sites to initiate enrollment of patients into the study.

"This is great progress for our IDE study. The randomised, controlled study includes hospitals in both the US and Europe, with a total number of 180 patients. In the US we have a number of sites totally ready for the study, and in Europe we have now finally gone through all ethic approval processes with favourable outcomes.
