LeMaitre Vascular Launches Next-Generation Stent Graft Delivery System
Date:11/16/2007

BURLINGTON, Mass., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- LeMaitre Vascular, Inc. (Nasdaq: LMAT) today announced the commercial launch of the TT(TM) Tortuous Tracker Delivery System, the next-generation introducer for LeMaitre Vascular's EndoFit(R) and UniFit(TM) Aortic Stent Graft product lines. The new delivery system will be sold beginning on Monday, November 19th, in the European Union and other select markets outside of the United States.

The TT system is designed to simplify stent graft implants by requiring reduced deployment force, providing the physician with increased control over placement of the stent graft in the aorta. The TT system offers better flexibility and an improved coating to increase maneuverability through blood vessels and a three-part valve system to minimize blood loss during the medical procedure. The TT system also provides better visualization during the procedure and a more ergonomic design.

"The TT system should improve the ease of use and therefore the performance of our endovascular stent grafts," said Ryan Connelly, Director, Research & Development of LeMaitre Vascular. "Since we acquired our stent graft product lines in 2005, we have carefully studied what vascular surgeons need to successfully deliver and deploy aortic stent grafts. The new TT system gives them what they have been asking for, which will enable better clinical results and improve patients' lives."

The TT system has already been used by physicians in over a dozen procedures designed to provide the company with pre-launch clinical feedback.

"I was very pleased with the flexibility of the device and its ability to navigate tortuous vessels," said Thomas Larzon, MD, Director of the EndoVascular Unit at Orebro University Hospital in Sweden. "It took much less physical effort to deploy the stent graft, which meant that I could more precisely position the stent graft where it would provide the best outcome for the patient."

"We are pleased to be able to offer a delivery system that we believe meets the high performance standards set by our stent graft products," said George W. LeMaitre, Chairman and CEO of LeMaitre Vascular. "We believe that the prior generation delivery system had discouraged adoption of our stent grafts. The TT system removes this impediment to growth."

The TT system will initially be available in a limited range of sizes as the company scales its production, with all sizes expected to become available by the end of 2008.

LeMaitre Vascular will be hosting its first ever Analyst Day at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City, on Monday, November 19th. Management, along with vascular surgeon customers, will be giving an overview and update on the Company and its products, including the new TT Tortuous Tracker Delivery System. A live audio webcast of the presentation will be available via the Internet at http://www.lemaitre.com/investor and will be available for replay for 30 days.

The TT Tortuous Tracker Delivery System and the EndoFit and UniFit Aortic Stent Grafts are not approved for sale in the United States.
