An Investigation of the EndoStim Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) Stimulation System for the Treatment of Reflux


Brief description of study

The purpose of this investigation is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) Stimulation System in treating gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This investigation is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled study. After the implant procedure, subjects will be randomized to either the Treatment Group (immediate stimulation) or Control Group (delayed stimulation) for six months followed by an additional open-label phase in which all subjects will receive electrical stimulation. Subjects continue on stimulation treatment in an extended open-label follow-up phase through 5 years post-stimulation.

Detailed Study Description

The purpose of this investigation is to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the EndoStim Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) Stimulation System in the treatment of subjects with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This investigation is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled clinical investigation. After the implant procedure, subjects will be randomized to either the Treatment Group (immediate stimulation) or Control Group (delayed stimulation) for a 6-month, double-blind phase followed by an additional open-label treatment phase in which all subjects will receive electrical stimulation therapy for a total of 12 months. Subjects continue on stimulation treatment and an extended open-label follow-up phase includes an 18 month post-stimulation phone interview followed by annual visits through 5 years post-stimulation.
