ide range of cerebral aneurysms as compared to bare platinum coils," said Richard Cappetta, President and Chief Executive Officer of MicroVention-Terumo.

Procedural safety and efficacy results for HELPS, previously published in 2008, found that the HydroCoil system can be safely used in a wide spectrum of aneurysms with a risk profile equivalent to that of bare platinum coils(1).

"MicroVention-Terumo is dedicated to clinical research and studies that focus on the science of interventional neuroendovascular surgery.  Having the results of this important study published in a journal as prestigious as The Lancet is a real testament to the outstanding work and dedication of Dr. White and all of the HELPS collaborators," Mr. Cappetta added.

Since the HELPS patient enrollment was completed in February 2007, MicroVention-Terumo has continued to innovate the HydroCoil line of coils, including the HydroSoft® finishing coil for filling small spaces that provides hydrogel at the neck of the aneurysm, and the HydroFrame® framing coil that provides optimal framing of the aneurysm with the clinical benefits of hydrogel.

The trial was based in the United Kingdom and managed by the Lothian Health Board with support from UK's National Health Service.  A total of 24 worldwide medical centers participated. The Core Lab that independently reviewed the results was Centre Hospitalier de l'Universite de Montreal (CHUM) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

About the HydroCoil Embolization System

The HydroCoil Embolic System is a unique non-bioactive endovascular embolization device combining the Company's platinum microcoil technology with a proprietary hydrogel.  The hydrogel polymer is a biomaterial that begins to swell after a brief period of contact with blood, giving physicians the ability to precisely control delivery of the device.  Once the hydrogel swells, it provides improved filling of the ane
