Vycor Medical Reports Financial Results for the Period ended March 31st, 2017

 

BOCA RATON, FL (May 11, 2017) – Vycor Medical, Inc. (Vycor) (OTCQB: VYCO), a provider of innovative and superior surgical and therapeutic solutions, reported financial results for the period ended March 31, 2017.

 

Vycor’s revenues for the period ended March 31, 2017 were $428,000 compared to $400,000 for 2016. Cash Operating Loss[1] was $87,000, as compared to $197,000 for the same period in 2016, a reduction of 56% and Operating Loss was $300,000, compared to $515,000, a reduction of 42%.

 

Highlights

 

  Vycor’s VBAS sales grew by 22% for the period ending March 31, 2017 in the US compared to the same period in 2016. International sales were lower however; international sales tend to be irregular as distributors follow a pattern of placing large stocking orders.
     
  A new clinical study on Vycor’s VBAS was published during the period, demonstrating a novel technique combining VBAS, neuronavigation and microsurgery. The VBAS was fundamental to this study, which concluded that the combination improves safety and patient outcomes and has broad value for the resection of a variety of deep brain lesions. In addition, a congress poster presented by surgeons at Weill Cornell was published in the Journal of Neurosurgery; this demonstrated using VBAS in effective surgery to anterior artery aneurisms and lesions of the anterior third ventricles. A total of 18 papers have now been published or presented demonstrating the clinical benefits of VBAS, 12 in the last two years.
     
  During the period the US patent office issued an intent to grant two additional patents covering Vycor’s navigation-equipped VBAS. The two patents cover Vycor’s novel systems for integrating neuro-navigation into the VBAS assembly without sacrificing the surgeon’s unparalleled ability to visually inspect the tissue underlying the VBAS introducer. The integration of IGS with our VBAS provides the surgeon with the unique ability to simultaneously optically and electronically visualize the location of the VBAS retractor and the patient’s tissue, to ensure the full opportunity to observe and address any conditions observed during the entire medical procedure. VBAS now has 18 granted/issued and 13 pending patents for VBAS technologies, while NovaVision has 41 granted/issued and 2 pending patents for its technologies.
     
  NovaVision sales grew by 14% for the period ending March 31, 2017 compared to 2016 and new VRT/Suite patient starts were up 54%. NovaVision currently has over 260 patients undergoing its therapies in the US and internationally. Patient compliance is also strong, with over 80% of patients completing the full 6 months of VRT, and almost 30% extending for additional therapy beyond 6 months.

Management Commentary

 

“Vycor’s results show the Company continuing to deliver on its publicly stated strategic plan, with VBAS increasing its market adoption particularly in the US, aided by increased clinical data. NovaVision’s patient volumes have now outstripped the impact of our lowered pricing to patients, so we are now seeing an improvement in revenues. We continue to decrease our Cash Operating Loss[2], which reduced to $87,000 for the quarter compared to $197,000 for the same period in 2016,” said Peter Zachariou, CEO of Vycor Medical.
