(Nasdaq: XTNT) today announced positive long-term follow-up data from the CUSTOM I, II and III clinical trials that reinforces the efficacy of the Custom NX(R) drug eluting stent (DES) system in treating patients with coronary artery disease.

The results presented today include three-year follow-up data from 30 patients studied in CUSTOM I, two-year data from the 100 patients in CUSTOM II and one-year data in 90 patients enrolled in CUSTOM III.
