PLANO, Texas, Aug. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nuvectra Corporation (NASDAQ:NVTR), a neurostimulation medical device company, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Highlights

Scott Drees, CEO, said, “During the second quarter our U.S. commercial organization, which includes approximately 50 active territories, continued to increase Algovita penetration into more hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers and physician offices that provide SCS therapy. This contributed to record Algovita revenue, up 62% sequentially, demonstrating our team’s growing momentum in the SCS market. We also completed our FDA regulatory submission for full-body MRI-conditional approval for the Algovita SCS system. Finally, we remain on track with our FDA and CE mark timelines for the Virtis Sacral Neuromodulation System.”
