Results of New Clinical Study Show Epidural Space Correctly Identified in 100% of Labor & Delivery Patients Using Milestone Scientific's CompuFlo(TM) Epidural Instrument
Results Featured in Abstract Presentation at the 45th Chilean Congress of Anesthesiology
LIVINGSTON, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 11/14/17 -- Milestone Scientific Inc . (NYSE American: MLSS) (NYSE MKT: MLSS), a leading developer of computerized drug delivery instruments that provide painless and precise injections, today announced that Dr. Camila Gonzalez of Clinica Davila, Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Los Andes located in Bogota, Columbia, presented an abstract at the 45th Chilean Congress of Anesthesiology on November 11, 2017, entitled: Utilization of Dynamic Pressure Sensing™ in Epidural Procedures for Child Birth.
The abstract summarizes the results of a new clinical study evaluating the use of Milestone's CompuFlo™ Epidural Instrument in 50 labor and delivery patients. The epidural space was correctly identified in 100% of the patients. In addition, the epidural space was recognized on the first attempt in all of the patients. There were no cases of accidental puncture of the dura, a common risk factor for traditional epidural procedures using the loss of resistance technique.
Dr. Mark Hochman, D.D.S, Director of Clinical Affairs for Milestone Scientific, commented, "The results of this study reinforce the advantages of our technology. Not only was the epidural space correctly identified in 100% of patients, but it was recognized on the first attempt. This represents a significant benefit for the payors, physicians, and most importantly, the patients."
"We are pleased to see the CompuFlo™ Epidural Instrument featured in an independent, investigator-led clinical study. The abstract presentation at the 45th Chilean Congress of Anesthesiology represents the first formal presentation of our CompuFlo™ Epidural Instrument in South America, and we are excited to see the technology rapidly gaining recognition around the world," continued to Dr. Hochman.
