Merit Medical Acquires Ostial Solutions

February 10, 2012—Merit Medical Systems recently announced it acquired the assets of Ostial Solutions LLC, maker of the Ostial Pro stent positioning system.

The system is the primary asset of Ostial Solutions, which allows precise stent implantation in coronary and renal aorto-ostial lesions when deploying a stent at the ostium of the vessel. The device is compatible with 6, 7 and 8 French guiding catheters and any manufacturer’s stent platforms. The anticipated benefits of this system would be to minimize the risk of the stent being deployed too proximal or too distal to the ostium, reducing the need for a second stent, as well as decreasing overall procedure time. The device received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
