News Release - March 7, 2018
Contego Medical Announces the Start of Enrollment in the PERFORMANCE I TrialRALEIGH, N.C., March 7, 2018 -- (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- Contego Medical, LLC has announced the beginning of enrollment in the PERFORMANCE I Trial, a clinical trial designed to evaluate the safety and feasibility of the Neuroguard IEP® 3-in-1 Carotid Stent and Post-Dilation Balloon System with Integrated Embolic Protection. The Neuroguard IEP System is designed to treat clinically significant carotid artery stenosis, further expanding Contego Medical's portfolio of neurovascular solutions.
The Neuroguard IEP System contains a novel, next-generation nitinol stent, a pre-positioned post-dilation balloon and an integrated microembolic filter with 40 μm pores. The stent has a closed-cell design for optimal balance of radial strength and flexibility. The stent is flared at both ends to facilitate ideal wall apposition in tortuous anatomy. The integrated filter is designed to capture both macro- and micro-emboli during the entire intervention. All components are mounted on a 6 French delivery system.
"The Neuroguard IEP System signals a new era in carotid artery stenting," said Ravish Sachar, M.D., CEO and Founder of Contego Medical. "By combining a novel stent, post-dilation balloon, and embolic filter onto the same catheter, we expect to dramatically impact this procedure by improving ease of use, reducing interventional time, and maximizing embolic protection. The Neuroguard IEP System represents Contego's third innovation in our commitment to deliver endovascular devices designed to improve outcomes without increasing complexity."
