About MGuard(TM) Coronary
The MGuard(TM) Coronary stent presents a novel combination of a coronary stent merged with an embolic protection device. The embolic protection device is comprised of an ultra-thin polymer mesh protective sleeve, wrapped around the stent. The protective sleeve is composed of a micron-level-fiber knitted net, engineered in an optimal geometric configuration and designed for utmost flexibility while retaining strength characteristics of the fiber material. The sleeve is designed to expand seamlessly when the stent is deployed, without affecting the structural integrity of the stent, and to prevent plaque detachment during and post procedure. The MGuard(TM) Coronary stent provides long acting embolic protection, without adding complexity during delivery. The net is designed to diffuse stent pressure on the vessel wall and, thereby may reduce injury and lower the likelihood of restenosis. MGuard(TM) is CE Mark approved.
The MGuard(TM) Coronary's innovative concept has enjoyed an enthusiastic welcome from leading interventional cardiologists around the world.
