About Endologix, Inc.

Endologix, Inc. develops and manufactures minimally invasive treatments
for aortic disorders. The Company's focus is endovascular stent grafts
for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). AAA is a
weakening of the wall of the aorta, the largest artery in the body,
resulting in a balloon-like enlargement. Once AAA develops, it continues
to enlarge and, if left untreated, becomes increasingly susceptible to
rupture. The overall patient mortality rate for ruptured AAA is
approximately 80%, making it a leading cause of death in the United
States. For more information, visit
