"These long-term safety data continue to support XTENT's development of Custom NX as the true next-generation drug eluting stent, particularly because the ability to customize care to the individual allows us to treat patients with long lesions and multi-vessel disease who are not well-served by currently available technology," said Gregory D. Casciaro, XTENT's President and CEO.

About Custom NX
Custom NX is designed to enable a more personalized approach to the treatment of arterial disease based on each patient's individual lesion characteristics. The Custom NX delivery system allows physicians to customize the length and diameter of the stent at the site of the lesion by enabling separation at each six-mm segment and allowing for the placement of up to 60 mm of stent. The stent is coated with Biolimus A9 and PLA, a biodegradable drug carrier.
The Custom NX DES System has not been approved for sale by any regulatory authority.
