TAXUS ATLAS studies also reinforce deliverability of TAXUS(R) Liberte(R)

The TAXUS Liberte Long (38 mm) Stent showed further significant reduction in the incidence of Non-Q-Wave Myocardial Infarction (MI, or heart attack) occurring at the time of the procedure compared to the earlier generation TAXUS stent. The data also demonstrated enhanced deliverability for both the TAXUS Liberte 2.25 mm Stent and for the TAXUS Liberte Long Stent.

The results were presented by Mark A. Turco, M.D., Director of the Center for Cardiac and Vascular Research, Washington Adventist Hospital, and co- principal investigator of the trial, at the Cardiovascular Research Foundation's (CRF) nineteenth annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific symposium in Washington, D.C.
