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

Dr. Asher Holzer, co-founder and President of InspireMD commented, "This study further demonstrates the efficacy of the MGuard mesh protective stent system, currently utilized in more than 500 hospitals worldwide, especially in thrombus loaded lesions . This analysis represents another positive data point, added to other studies which show the advantages of MGuard. This evaluation reinforces our confidence as we continue the MASTER (MGUARD for Acute ST Elevation Reperfusion) Randomized Trial, a multinational randomized controlled trial designed to demonstrate MGuard Coronary Stent's advantages over standard care for STEMI (heart attack) patients, chaired by Dr. Gregg Stone from Columbia University."

Conclusions reached in this preliminary evaluation were that the MGuard stent demonstrated effective performance in a highly complex lesion subset, with limited angiographic and procedural complications, suggesting its effectiveness for these indications.  

"This analysis of our initial experience with MGuard confirms our expectations of its performance in cases with a high risk for distal embolization," stated Dr. David Meerkin, Director of Experimental Cardiology, Department of Cardiology, Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Jerusalem, Israel. "The added value of the MGuard Micro-Mesh for this subset of patients appears to provide a substantially better procedural outcome. This leaves us with high expectations that the MASTER trial will confirm the benefits of MGuard for thrombus laden lesions in a randomized fashion."

"Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem was one of the early adopters and is one of the leading centers in MGuard usage worldwide," added Ofir Paz, co-founder and CEO of InspireMD.  "Their confidence in the benefit of the MGuard Micro-Mesh technology for thrombus management has been unfailing from the beginning. The acceptance of this analysis for presentation at EuroPCR this month was gratifying for us all and serves as
