InspireMD to Discuss MGuard(TM) and the MASTER Randomized Trial Results at the ICI 2012 Meeting

TEL-AVIV, Israel, December 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

InspireMD, Inc. (OTC BB: NSPR) ("Inspire" or the "Company"), the developer of the MGuard™ Embolic Protection Stent (EPS), will sponsor a satellite symposium on December 4th at the ICI, Innovations in Cardiovascular Innovation, Meeting at the David Intercontinental Hotel, Tel-Aviv.  

InspireMD's symposium will be chaired by Dr. Gregg W. Stone, and the meeting faculty includes Drs. Martin Leon, Sigmund Silber and Chaim Lotan. The session, titled "MGuard Embolic Protection Stent (EPS) Outperforms BMS and DES in STEMI Treatment", will show the 30 days MASTER trial randomized data of MGuard in STEMI patients, as well challenging cases that give insights into the uses and benefits of the MGuard MicroNet® EPS technology.

The MASTER trial findings were presented for the first time at the Late Breaking Clinical Trials session of the 24th Annual Transcathater Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific meeting in Miami on October 24. The results showed the novel MGuard EPS provided a statistically and clinically significant acute advantage and, as a result, may hold the potential to lower the incidence of adverse sequela and prolong survival of heart attack victims.

The MASTER trial randomized 432-patient data was published in the November 6, 2012 print edition of the peer-reviewed Journal of American College of Cardiology, Vol. 60, No. 19.

The online version of the paper, authored by Gregg W. Stone, MD and others, appeared Wednesday (October 24) at:, coinciding with Dr. Stone's presentation of the findings at TCT.

About Stenting and MGuard EPS

Standard stents weren't engineered for heart attack patients.  They were designed for treating stable angina patients whose occlusion is different from that of an occlusion in a heart attack patient.

In acute heart attack patients, the plaque or thrombus is unstable and often breaks up as the stent is implanted causing downstream blockages (some of which can be fatal) in a significant portion of heart attack patients.

The MGuard EPS is integrated with a precisely engineered micro net mesh that prevents the unstable arterial plaque and thrombus (clots) that caused the heart attack blockage from breaking off.

While offering superior performance relative to standard stents in STEMI patients, the MGuard EPS requires no change in current physician practice - an important factor in promoting acceptance and general use in time-critical emergency settings.
