The Valecor Platinum is a next-generation cobalt-chromium bare-metal stent. Utilizing a novel ion-based implantation technology called Nanofusion(TM), the Valecor Platinum stent presents a pure platinum surface to both the lumen and artery wall to provide protection from less biocompatible components inherent in all medical-grade alloys. Platinum is known for its superior biocompatibility and biostability. In addition, the stent offers some of the thinnest struts available and a novel open cell design that maximizes flexibility and conformability, while causing minimal inflammation and tissue damage during deployment.

"The Valecor Platinum Coronary Stent System represents a major advancement over current offerings in the relatively undifferentiated $1 billion bare stent market," said S. Eric Ryan, M.D., chairman and chief executive officer of CorNova. "Because of its highly biocompatible platinum surface and its novel open cell design, it has shown superior anti-restentotic performance compared to leading bare metal stents in preclinical studies."

About CorNova

CorNova is a developer of next-generation endovascular products designed to integrate new technologies into existing products and procedures, resulting in better patient outcomes without added procedure time, cost and patient risk. The company's FiberHalo(TM) stent deployment and post-dilatation angioplasty balloon catheters are designed to provide stent lumen area measurement within the angioplasty catheter itself. CorNova is also developing a pre-dilatation version of the FiberHalo catheter that can detect the potential of mechanical failure that would allow for treatment prior to stent placement and the Valecor Platinum(TM) Coronary Stent, an advanced "bare-metal stent" with an ion-infused pure platinum surface that has shown superior performance and anti-restenoic properties compared to current bare-metal stents.
