SenoRx Expands Labeling for Contura MLB, Introduces Contura Shape Select MLB

February 9, 2009 - SenoRx Inc. said today it has expanded labeling for its larger-size Contura Multi-Lumen Radiation Balloon (MLB) catheter, which reflects the broader clinical capabilities included in the device's 510(k) clearance.

"The novel proprietary design of our new Contura Shape Select MLB provides enhanced flexibility to clinicians in appropriately fitting the lumpectomy cavity with one balloon catheter, which may be adjusted into different sizes," said Lloyd Malchow, SenoRx president and CEO. "The label will now indicate Contura's suitability for lumpectomy cavities with dimensions ranging from 4.5 to 6 centimeters, compared to the previous labeling of 5 to 6 centimeters. In addition, our new Contura balloon not only offers multiple lumens for contouring the radiation dosage and flexibility in size, but also offers the ability to change shape from oval to spherical based upon inflation volumes to accommodate different sized cavities."
