Implantica publishes Year-end Report, January – December 2022 (Q4)

Significant events in the fourth quarter of 2022

  • Spire Manchester Hospital is now performing RefluxStop™ procedures. Spire Manchester is part of Spire Healthcare Group, a network of 39 hospitals and 8 clinics across England, Wales and Scotland.
  • Implantica receives Global Health & Pharma’s Award; Most Innovative MedTech Company– Central Europe for 2022 based on a serious due diligence by GHP, identifying the high innovation level of Implantica.
  • Implantica attended the European Foregut Society (EFS) Conference in Belgrade, Serbia where the positive clinical outcomes of RefluxStop were presented by Dr. med. Borbély from Inselspital Bern.
  • Implantica presented RefluxStop’s health economic impact at one of the biggest Payer conferences, ISPOR, the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research Conference in Vienna, Austria. The results presented evaluated the cost-effectiveness of RefluxStop™ as well as the budget impact on the healthcare system in England and Wales. RefluxStop therapy was shown to be more favourable in terms of cost benefit to the competition, in terms of PPI medical therapy, standard-of-care Fundoplication and Magnetic Sphincter Augmentation. This is good news for RefluxStop’s™ commercial development as these results will be considered by governmental bodies and insurance companies.
