About Stenting and MGuard EPS
Standard stents were not engineered exclusively for heart attack patients. They were also designed for treating stable angina patients whose occlusion contains thrombotic material.
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 integrates a precisely engineered micro net mesh designed to prevent 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 with regard to ST segment resolution, the MGuard EPS requires no change in current physician practice - an important factor in promoting acceptance and general use in time-critical emergency settings.
