 CE Mark for EnteroMedics Weight Loss Therapy Stimulator

EnteroMedics of St. Paul, MN has received European CE mark for its second generation Maestro RC System which aids in weight loss by helping to relieve the hunger sensation by intermittently blocking the vagus nerve trunks using electronic pulses (VBLOC therapy).

The Maestro RC System is a device like pacemaker. The device affects the physiology of hunger and fullness without enforcing punitive, mechanical limits to lifestyle and diet or does not even require surgical alteration of the anatomy.

Clinical trials are going on to evaluate the safety and efficacy of VBLOC therapy for treating obesity.
