Concentric Medical Reaches Important Stroke Milestone
Date:1/26/2009

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Concentric Medical, Inc., the global leader in devices for clot removal in ischemic stroke patients, today announced that the company's Merci Retrieval System(TM) has been used in over 10,000 patients since its launch in August 2004. The Merci Retrieval System is a catheter-based medical device that advanced stroke centers use to remove blood clots from patients suffering an ischemic stroke.

The Merci Retrieval System has been used by leading stroke institutions around the world. In commenting on this accomplishment, Dr. Marilyn Rymer, Medical Director at Saint Luke's Mid-America Brain and Stroke Institute in Kansas City, MO, said, "This milestone marks a great achievement in the advancement of interventional stroke care both in the U.S. and around the world. At Saint Luke's Hospital in Kansas City, we have used the device in over 300 stroke victims, old and young, with very impressive results. Concentric Medical and the Merci Retrieval System have revolutionized the way we treat stroke."

Concentric Medical has brought to market three generations of Merci Retrievers(R), and worked very closely with the stroke care community in conducting two important clinical trials. Dr. Gary Duckwiler, Director of Interventional Neuroradiology at UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine, commented, "It is incredible to think that in such a short time, with such a difficult and devastating disease, that 10,000 patients have been treated with Merci(R) devices. I remember the first case we did using the original Merci device, a success that told us we could make a significant difference in acute stroke care. Concentric Medical has dramatically altered the treatment landscape for acute stroke by making it possible for Stroke Centers to fulfill their promise of improving patient's lives. Concentric Medical should be congratulated on its tremendous accomplishments."
