OrbusNeich's Genous(TM) Bio-engineered R stent(TM) is Feasible in Patients Requiring Undeferrable Non-Cardiac Surgery, International Journal of Cardiology Publication Reports
Date:9/11/2009

HONG KONG, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- OrbusNeich's Genous Bio-engineered R stent is feasible and safe in patients who need coronary revascularization before undeferrable non-cardiac surgery and have to discontinue dual antiplatelet therapy, according to a paper published online in the International Journal of Cardiology (Int J Cardiol. 2009 Aug 21. [Epub ahead of print]).

The paper, titled "A new approach to percutaneous coronary revascularization in patients requiring undeferrable non-cardiac surgery," is based on a study of 30 patients who needed coronary revascularization followed by an endovascular or surgical procedure. All of the patients were treated with the Genous stent, and there were no cardiac events reported at 30-days follow-up after surgery. The dual antiplatelet therapy was stopped before surgery, achieving an average antiplatelet therapy time of 12.2 +/- 3.9 days. The surgery was performed after antiplatelet therapy interruption at an average interval from revascularization of 17.2 +/- 3.9 days.

"The literature on an optimal strategy for high cardiovascular risk patients requiring undeferrable surgery remains limited," said Federico Piscione, M.D., of Federico II University in Naples, Italy, lead and corresponding author of the publication. "This study adds to the body of knowledge that this Genous healing stent could allow surgical procedures to be performed soon after stent deployment and DAT (dual antiplatelet therapy) discontinuation."

About Genous

Genous is OrbusNeich's patented endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) capture technology that promotes the accelerated natural healing of the vessel wall after the placement of blood-contact devices such as stents. The technology consists of an antibody surface coating that attracts EPCs circulating in the blood to the device to form an endothelial layer that provides protection against thrombosis and modulates restenosis.

OrbusNeich's Genous Bio-engineered R stent has been commercially available in over 60 countries since 2005. The Genous stent has been proven as a safe, effective alternative to drug-eluting stents and is supported by data from more than 5,000 patients in company-sponsored clinical studies. There is a growing body of evidence from multiple clinical studies that the Genous stent is effective for patients who are non-responsive to or cannot tolerate long-term dual antiplatelet therapy.
