Implantica makes headway in Italy and Spain with its medical device RefluxStop™

Implantica AG (publ) today announces that the company will start commercializing RefluxStop™ on a reimbursed basis in Italy and Spain based on local/regional hospital agreements.

Implantica will now focus on providing RefluxStop™ to the leading anti-reflux surgeons and centers in Italy and Spain. Surgical training will commence initially via webinar with representatives from Germany and Switzerland until Covid-19 subsides.

“We look forward to continue to develop the KOL (key opinion leader) networks and train surgeons in Italy and Spain and to sell RefluxStop™ on a reimbursed basis based on individual hospital /regional agreements” said Peter Forsell, CEO of Implantica. “At this stage we will mainly focus on the larger anti-reflux centers, and we will extend our registry study also to these countries to collect data for RefluxStop™.”
