Date:2/6/2012

TEL AVIV, Israel, Feb. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- InspireMD, Inc. (OTC BB: NSPR) (the "Company" or "InspireMD"), a medical device company focusing on the development and commercialization of its proprietary stent platform technology for use in patients with Acute Myocardial Infarctions, announced positive clinical results from an investigator-sponsored controlled randomized trial conducted in Chile. The study showed that acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) patients who underwent coronary angioplasty with MGuard™  exhibited statistically significant improvement in microvascular reperfusion criteria compared with those treated with traditional bare metal stents (BMS).  

The study was presented in Washington, D.C., at the Cardiovascular Research Technologies conference by lead investigator Dr. Dante Lindefjeld. "Every perfusion parameter measured in our study displayed superior outcomes in the MGuard™ group compared to the BMS group," said Dr. Lindefjeld when asked about his presentation.  "Additional randomized trials are now appropriate to gather more data about the role of MGuard™ in clinical use.  I'm personally pleased to be the investigator who completed the first randomized trial for MGuard™."

Eli Bar, CTO and Vice President of Research and Development at InspireMD, commented, "The results of this 40-patient study add to the growing body of data about MGuard's efficacy. The continued work of independent investigators such as Dr. Lindefjeld and his colleagues is important in evaluating the value of MGuard™ and in creating greater awareness of the product among cardiologists.  We will continue to study MGuard™ to generate further data about its safety and efficacy."
