Methods and devices for endoscopic treatment of organs

Image Number 14 for United States Patent #8092472.

The present invention relates to devices and methods for the endoscopic treatment of hollow organs. The invention provides improved devices and methods for apposing and fixating multiple regions of the outer surface of a hollow organ. The invention is particularly useful for procedures in which multiple regions of the outer surface of the stomach are brought into apposition and fixated, for example procedures to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or procedures to treat obesity.
