Stentys Launches New Stent-Delivery System to Facilitate Implantation in More Complex Anatomies

October 3, 2012 — Stentys, a medical technology company commercializing the world's first and only self-apposing stent to treat acute myocardial infarction (AMI), announced today the European commercial release of an enhanced stent-delivery system for its Self-Apposing stent.

Stents are implanted in the coronary arteries via a keyhole in the groin or in the wrist under X-ray angiography. Cardiologists use a delivery catheter to navigate through the arteries, reach the occluded vessel and deploy the stent. The new catheter to implant the Stentys Self-Apposing stent adds a hydrophilic (slippery) coating and an ergonomic handle that considerably facilitates stent implantation in tortuous vessels.

“Feedback from cardiologists suggests the new delivery catheter is very user-friendly, and we are confident this product enhancement will allow a greater range of patients to benefit from our Stentys Self-Apposing stent technology,” said Gonzague Issenmann, co-founder and CEO of Stentys.

In its latest guidelines on AMI treatment, the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) calls attention to the importance of selecting the appropriate stent size, as the vessel in this setting is contracted and contains thrombus (clot), and to the complications that may result from inappropriate stent sizing. The Stentys Self-Apposing stent solves that “stent-sizing dilemma:” it fits into the contour of a blood vessel, and its shape and diameter adapt as the vessel dilates and the initial clot dissolves during the post-AMI phase.
