Conceptus Company Profile

17:58 EDT 26th September 2017 | BioPortfolio

Conceptus, Inc. has developed Essure, an innovative medical procedure, designed to provide a non-incisional alternative to tubal ligation, the leading form of birth control worldwide. In the United States, Essure is currently an investigational device for non-incisional permanent birth control. The Essure procedure is based on a unique and proprietary micro-insert and catheter delivery system for minimally invasive transcervical tubal access. On April 19, 2002, Conceptus submitted an application to the Food and Drug Administration, seeking approval to market Essure in the United States. The availability of Essure in the U.S. is projected for 2003 and is expected to open up a market currently occupied by surgical tubal ligation and vasectomy, which combined account for more than 1 million sterilization procedures, annually.



The Common Stock of Conceptus has been traded on the Nasdaq National Market under the symbol CPTS since the effective date of the initial public offering on February 1, 1996.
