Date:10/28/2009

MAPLE GROVE, Minn., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- NeuroVasx, Inc., a medical device company that develops technologies for the treatment of hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke, announced today that the first procedure in Spain utilizing its cPAX Aneurysm Treatment System was performed in Madrid. cPAX received CE Mark earlier this year.

Dr. Alfredo Casasco, Interventional Neuroradiology, Department of Endovascular and Percutaneous Treatment, Clinica Nuestra Senora del Rosario, used 143cm of cPAX in combination with platinum coils to treat an unruptured aneurysm over 13mm in diameter.

"According to the AngioCalc aneurysm volume calculator, greater than 40% packing density was achieved with cPAX alone, which we see as a great result," said Kathryn Meintsma, Vice President of Marketing, NeuroVasx. "Studies have indicated that aneurysms packed greater than 24% have a lower incidence of recanalization."(1,2)

"We are very pleased with the outcome of the first procedure in Spain, which demonstrates the sophisticated filling capabilities of cPAX in large aneurysms," said Eric B. Timko, President and Chief Executive Officer, NeuroVasx. "cPAX was designed to simplify delivery, shorten procedure time and improve outcomes, and the product's polymer characteristics make it ideally suited to take on the shape of large aneurysms and attain maximized packing density. This case marks a significant milestone in our entry into the European market and we look forward to continuing to introduce cPAX throughout the EU."

The cPAX System is a minimally invasive device for the embolization of cerebral aneurysms, abnormal bulges or sacs in the wall of an artery in the brain. If ruptured, aneurysms can result in massive intracranial bleeding and often lead to death. cPAX is a polymer strand delivered through a microcatheter using the same delivery technique as the currently used platinum coil technolog
