Milestone Scientific Announces over 500 Successful Procedures Using CompuFlo Epidural System

October 17, 2017

Milestone Scientific Inc., a developer of painless and precise computerized drug delivery instruments, today announced that its CompuFlo® Epidural System has been successfully utilized in over 500 epidural procedures, including both labor and delivery, as well as pain management, with no complications reported. The CompuFlo® Epidural System has been deployed in a variety of settings at leading institutions in the U.S., Europe and South America.

Prof. Giorgio Capogna, Director of the European School of Obstetric Anesthesia and Head of the Department of Anesthesia at Città di Roma Hospital, commented, “Mastering the art of an epidural injection takes years of practice.  Learning to use the CompuFlo® Epidural System was fast and simple.  Given its ease-of-use and ability to precisely identify the epidural space, the CompuFlo® Epidural System should become the standard-of-care for epidural procedures.”

Leslie Bernhard, Milestone’s Chairman and Interim Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Following our recent 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, I am pleased to report we are successfully executing our strategy of placing the CompuFlo® Epidural System with key opinion leaders in the U.S., Europe and around the world.  To date, we have successfully completed over 500 procedures with zero complications.  These results are particularly significant considering the potential risk factors associated with a traditional epidural procedure.”
