XTENT Announces CUSTOM I Data Receives Recognition from EuroIntervention
Date:6/17/2008

MENLO PARK, Calif., June 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- XTENT, Inc. (Nasdaq: XTNT) today announced that the CUSTOM I two-year data that was published in the current issue of EuroIntervention was recognized by the journal's editorial board as one of the six best papers submitted to the journal this past winter. Lutz Buellesfeld, M.D., of the HELIOS Heart Center in Siegburg, Germany, and one of the study's investigators, received an award in conjunction with the publication after presenting it at the annual EuroPCR meeting.

"I am very pleased to congratulate Dr. Buellesfeld and all of the authors of the CUSTOM I two-year data for the due recognition they received from their peers," said Gregory D. Casciaro, XTENT's President and CEO. "We believe this demonstrates increasing awareness by the clinical community of the significant unmet need that remains in the treatment of coronary artery disease, and the potential for Custom NX's in-situ customization approach to fill that need."

The paper and presentation at the EuroPCR meeting discussed the previously released positive long-term follow-up data from the single-arm, 30-patient, first-in-man study evaluating the safety and efficacy of its Custom NX drug eluting stent (DES) system in patients with coronary artery disease. The results were first presented at the annual meeting of the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics in October 2007.

The paper was selected as one of the six best articles submitted to EuroIntervention between November 2007 and February 2008. The winning papers were selected based on originality, clinical and scientific importance, scientific methods and accuracy and statistical analysis. EuroIntervention is the official publication of EuroPCR and the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI) and is endorsed by The European Society of Cardiology (ESC).

About the Custom NX(R) DES System

Custom NX is designed to enable a more personalized approach to the treatment of arterial disease based on each patient's individual lesion characteristics. The Custom NX system allows physicians to customize the length and diameter of the stent at the site of the lesion. The system features a proprietary modular stent design that consists of multiple 6 mm cobalt chromium segments coated with Biolimus A9(R) and PLA, a biodegradable drug carrier. The Custom NX delivery system enables the stent length to be adjusted in 6mm increments and allows for the placement of up to 60mm of stent at one or more locations. The Custom NX DES System has not been approved for sale by any regulatory authority.
