ENTrigue Surgical has entered into a collaboration agreement with fiagon, a developer of portable navigation systems.

fiagon’s navigation system uses electromagnetic tracking matrix algorithms and flexible pointing devices to simplify the use of modern navigation and diagnostic tools in daily clinical routine.

Under the agreement, ENTrigue and fiagon will together provide the integrated navigation and therapy solutions including ENTrigue’s Ventera sinus dilation balloon system for ENT procedures in Europe.

By utilizing proprietary SerpENT articulating technology, the Ventera system delivers the single-use balloon into various sinuses, without the use of either manual tip shaping, guide wire or cannula.

ENTrigue CEO Fred Dinger said integrating fiagon’s navigation to the company’s sinus dilation platform will provide the ENT surgeon with an unparalleled level of confirmation of balloon position within the sinus anatomy.

"We look forward to collaborating with fiagon to combine two game-changing platforms with the goal of bringing easy-to-use, cost effective technologies to the sinus surgery market," Dinger added.
