Healthcare Industry News: self-apposing stent
News Release - May 14, 2012
STENTYS Expands Its Product Offerings for Treating Heart AttacksPRINCETON, N.J. & PARIS--(Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network)--STENTYS S.A. (STNT.PA), a medical technology company commercializing the world's first and only Self-Apposing® Stent to treat Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI), announced today that it is launching a thrombectomy device (aspiration catheter) called STENTYS AC.
Heart attacks are caused by the occlusion of a coronary artery due to clot formation. The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) recommends that cardiologists try removing as much clot chunks as possible prior to implanting a stent in order to minimize distal embolization (blockage of downstream vessels). STENTYS AC is designed to safely recover debris and can be used in concert with its Self-Apposing devices, STENTYS BMS and STENTYS DES.
“Coronary thrombectomy devices are a $40 million market and we are very pleased to offer our customers a device with the best aspiration power on the market to be used with our breakthrough self-apposing stents for treating AMI,” said Gonzague Issenmann, CEO of STENTYS. “STENTYS is building a portfolio to offer the complete AMI solution to the cath lab.”
Based in Princeton, N.J., and Paris, STENTYS has developed a new generation of stents to treat acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and bifurcation lesions. Founded by Jacques Séguin, M.D., Ph.D. and Gonzague Issenmann, STENTYS received CE-marking for its flagship products in 2010. Its self-apposing stent adapts to the anatomic changes of arteries in the post-infarction phase and thus prevents the malapposition problem associated with conventional stents. STENTYS has commenced marketing activities in several European countries.
