3D Multilayer Stent System Treats Popliteal Aneurysm Patient

October 1, 2007 - Cardiatis SA announced today that physicians performed the first reportedly successful treatment of a popliteal aneurysm patient with the Cardiatis FluidSmart 3D Multilayer Braided Stent, an investigational device in the European Union, which is a next generation technology for endovascular aneurysm repair.

The procedure was performed by Professor Antonios Polydorou at Agios Panteleimon General Hospital of Nikaia in Athens, Greece. The first treated patient, a 75-year old male, on December 14th 2006 underwent a minimally invasive endovascular procedure that placed a Cardiatis FluidSmart hemodynamic modulating stent to treat a 5 cm popliteal aneurysm. Post procedural angiogram showed successful deployment and reduction in flow within aneurysm.

On February 20th 2007, two months following stent implantation, angiography revealed the formation of an organized thrombus within the aneurysm with reduction in aneurysm size.

On July 10th, 2007 the seven-month follow up angiogram revealed complete exclusion of aneurysm from circulation. As of the time of writing, the aneurysm remains excluded from circulation with no recanalization and the patient has resumed full functionality.
