    The company completed a trial and is submitting this to the FDA for approval. Nothing really extraordinary. The stock reacts as if the product actually got approval, though I'm certain the company is hoping enough investors mistake a trial completion for FDA approval, as STXS is looking to sell more equity as per recent filings.
