Israeli Facility Study Demonstrates MGuard™ Stent System Helps Prevent Distal Embolization
Date:5/31/2011

TEL-AVIV, Israel,  May 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- InspireMD, Inc. (OTC BB: NSPR) ("Inspire" or the "Company"), the developer of the MGuard mesh protective stent system, today announced another positive study, reinforcing MGuard's position in the cardiology market.

In a preliminary evaluation by Drs. Dmitry Dratva, Yaron Almagor, Jonathan Balkin, David Rosenmann, Mark Klutstein, Dan Tzivoni and David Meerkin from the Department of Cardiology at Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Jerusalem, Israel, the MGuard stent demonstrated excellent performance in a highly complex lesion subset with limited angiographic and procedural complications, suggesting its effectiveness in minimizing the possible embolic shower during stenting procedure, potentially replacing thrombus aspiration and distal protection devices in selected cases. The results of the analysis were presented at the  EuroPCR 2011, the official congress of the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions, held this month in Paris, France.

Distal embolization with no reflow/slow flow remains the principal complication of stent deployment in patients during heart attack and in other thrombus-containing lesions and degenerative vein grafts. This market segment contributes about one-third of the total stenting procedures completed. Other solutions in the study did not demonstrate any advantages in helping patients from distal embolization. While distal protection has demonstrated benefits only in vein grafts, and has no value in native vessels, the MGuard showed a benefit for multiple thrombus-containing lesions in the study, including in the treatment of patients during heart attacks. A commercially available mesh covered stent (MGuard) was used as an in situ protection device.
