About LINX

Reflux Barrier — Reflux is caused by a weak muscle in your esophagus called the Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES). The LES is your body’s Reflux Barrier. Normally your Reflux Barrier acts like a one-way valve, allowing food and liquid to pass into the stomach, but preventing stomach contents from flowing back into the esophagus. In people with reflux, the Reflux Barrier allows harmful acid and bile to flow back into the esophagus.
Stomach Acid — Stomach acid plays an important role to break down food into molecules your body can absorb. When acid leaves your stomach, it’s toxic and will wreak havoc on your esophagus, lungs and throat, causing painful symptoms and leading to serious complications.

Esophagus — Insult, then injury over and over again. When stomach acid rises upward, it wears away the lining of the esophagus, causing irritation, inflammation and painful symptoms. Over time, insult can lead to serious injury and cancer.
*LINX is not intended to prevent cancer
Throat — Forever froggy? Reflux takes a toll on your throat, causing hoarseness, dry cough, change in voice, difficulty swallowing and chronic soreness.
Lungs — Stomach acid can also enter the lungs. Once there, it can cause coughing, wheezing, bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma and other breathing issues.

LINX — LINX is a small, flexible ring of magnets that opens to allow food and liquid down, then closes to prevent stomach contents from moving up. Simple as that.

Clinical trial underway to study LINX® Reflux Management System in people with GERD who have undergone laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy surgery

Torax Medical Inc. has partnered with selected medical centers in the United States to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the LINX device in patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) who have undergone a previous laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) for obesity and are looking for an alternative to taking daily proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) or other anti-reflux medications. The purpose of the study is to see whether the LINX device can be used safely in people with GERD who have had LSG surgery and if it can reduce or eliminate GERD-related symptoms.

To qualify, patients must be at least 22 years old, had bariatric sleeve surgery at least 12 months ago, have documented symptoms of GERD (acid reflux), currently need to take daily GERD medication and meet other criteria. Participation in the clinical trial will last 1 years after the LINX device is implanted.

Note: The LINX device has not been proven safe and effective in patients who have undergone LSG surgery which is the purpose of this research. As a result, there are both known and potentially unknown risks associated with LINX surgery for people who have had LSG surgery. 

More information can be found on the National Institute of Health, clinicaltrials.gov website: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02429830?term=TORAX+RELIEF&cond=GERD&rank=1

CAUTION—Investigational device. Limited by Federal (or United States) law to investigational use. The LINX device is approved in the US to be used for patients who have never had gastric (stomach) surgery.
