ESTA Reaches One Million Motiva Implants Milestone

NEW YORK, Dec. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Establishment Labs Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: ESTA), a medical technology company focused on Women’s Health – initially in the breast aesthetics and reconstruction market – announced its one millionth Motiva® implant in market.

Juan José Chacón-Quirós, Founder and CEO of Establishment Labs, commented, “In our tenth commercial year with Motiva Implants®, we celebrate another important milestone, as we announce that we have one million Motiva Implants® in market. Most importantly, we achieved this milestone while maintaining less than a 1% complication rate for events related to Motiva Implants®. I want to thank the entire Establishment Labs team and the growing group of surgeons for helping us deliver Motiva® to patients in more than 80 countries around the world.”

Juan José Chacón-Quirós continued, “With Motiva Implants®, we embarked on a journey to transform the breast aesthetics and reconstruction industry through innovative technology and a strong foundation of science and research. It is our commitment to Women’s Health that has allowed us to have a positive impact on the lives of hundreds of thousands worldwide.”

Capsular contracture and implant rupture are the two most common reasons for complaints and are also the most known failure modes associated with breast implants. A retrospective study on 2506 patients at up to 3 years reported complication rates with Motiva Implants® of 0.36% (95% CI, 0.19% to 0.68%) and reported no cases of device-related implant rupture, no cases of capsular contracture (Baker lll/IV), no double capsules or late seromas. A six-year published prospective study on 35 patients that included an MRI cohort using Motiva Implants® reported no cases of implant rupture or malposition and no cases of capsular contracture.

Establishment Labs has reached this commercial milestone as a result of the support and partnership from patients and surgeons. Motiva Implants® are part of Establishment Labs’ comprehensive portfolio of advanced smooth implants that are now available in more than 80 countries. Motiva Implants® are undergoing a clinical trial in the U.S. and are not approved for sale in the United States.
