Cordis Unveils Next Generation CoCr Coronary Stent

WATERLOO, Belgium, March 11, 2010 /PRNewswire/ --

- PRESILLION(TM) PLUS CoCr Coronary Stent Offers New Levels of Delivery, Support and Restoration for Arteriosclerotic Arteries

Cordis Corporation today announced the European launch of its next generation of bare metal stent system - PRESILLION(TM) PLUS. The new stent system, which improves upon the ground-breaking PRESILLION(TM), features important technological advances designed to gain easier access to distal lesions and help restore the artery's natural form.

"The new upgraded delivery system increases the speed of procedures with atraumatic delivery, increased pushability, and smoother withdrawal. We are very satisfied with the speed in which we were able to incorporate feedback from cardiologists into the new design," said Campbell Rogers MD, Global Head of R&D of Cordis Corporation.

The PRESILLION(TM) PLUS changes include a new hypotube for improved pushability in crossing calcified lesions and a redesigned semi-compliant balloon for precise stent deployment and decreased deflation time.

The PRESILLION(TM) PLUS stent is available in lengths from 8 to 33mm including a new 28mm addition and in diameters from 2.5 to 4.0mm.

The PIONIR study, designed to measure the safety and effectiveness of PRESILLION(TM) and PRESILLION(TM) PLUS, completed enrollment at 16 sites in Europe and Israel. The study, conducted by Medinol, includes 278 patients and will evaluate clinical performance through one year.

"Our vision at Cordis is to transform cardiovascular care, a field in which incredible progress has been made over the last decade, but one in which much more remains to be done. The new PRESILLION(TM) PLUS further complements our portfolio with its technological advances. We will continue to deliver innovative new solutions that save lives and improve the quality of life for people around the world," said Staffan Ternstrom, President, Cordis Europe, Middle-East, Africa.

Cordis Corporation is the exclusive global distributor of PRESILLION(TM) PLUS, which is designed and manufactured by Medinol Ltd, Israel. PRESILLION (TM) PLUS is a trademark of Cordis Corporation.
