Flourish Pediatric Esophageal Atresia Device
Flourish was created to give doctors a minimally invasive alternative to surgery when treating esophageal atresia – a congenital birth defect which occurs in about 1 in every 2,500 newborns¹. Using rare earth magnets, Flourish gradually stretches both ends of the infant’s esophageal pouches together to form a fully functioning esophagus.
