MGuard Prime(R) offers an advanced patented Cobalt Chromium design, superior flexibility and excellent deliverability on top of the established benefits of the MGuard MicroNet(R) technology.

MGuard(TM) is now available with an improved delivery system. Recently InspireMD introduced MGuard with a new improved delivery system in selected regions. The new delivery system offers a state of the art design and a superior deliverability. "We are very pleased with the flexibility and performance of the new delivery system.

MGuard final adjudicated results of the MAGICAL trial, including the long awaited 6 months clinical FU results, will be presented for the first time at the EuroPCR. The MAGICAL Trial is a 60 patients STEMI study. Acute results as well as interim 30 day clinical results have previously been presented by Dr. Dariusz Dukek, the study's primary investigator.

Also coming up at the EuroPCR, presented for the first time, the final adjudicated results of the INSPIRE trial, and long awaited 1 year clinical FU with 6 month angiographic results.

The INSPIRE Trial from Sao-Paulo, Brazil is a 30 patients' study that enrolled SVG and native coronary patients. Acute results as well as interim results have previously been presented by Dr. A. Abizaid, the study's primary investigator.

The international iMOS registry has crossed the 200 patients' milestone. The registry will enroll 1000 'real world' MGuard(TM) patients in Europe, Asia and South America.

About MGuard(TM) Coronary

MGuard(TM) presents a novel combination of a coronary stent merged with an embolic protection. The embolic protection is comprised of an ultra-thin polymer mesh sleeve that wraps the stent. The protective sleeve is composed of a micron-level-fiber which is knit in order to ensure flexibility while retaining the strength characteristics of the fiber material. The sleeve is designed to expand seamlessly when the stent is deployed, without affecting the structural integrity of the stent. The MGuard(TM) coronary stent provides permanent embolic protection, without complicating deliverability. Reduced injury to the vessel as a result of diffused stent pressure is a benefit of the sleeve which may lead to lower risk of restenosis. MGuard(TM) is CE Mark approved.

The MGuard(TM) Coronary's innovative concept has enjoyed an enthusiastic welcome from leading interventional cardiologists around the world.
