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

yet another indication of the potential of our technology. We are repeatedly learning of additional centers worldwide revealing their analysis of collective MGuard data showing improved outcomes similar to these in the treatment of patients with highly complex thrombotic lesions."

Details and methodology:

  • The MGuard stent was used at operator discretion for cases considered at risk for significant distal embolization.
  • Data was prospectively collected in a registry for all cases where the MGuard stent was used including patient, lesion and procedural characteristics, as well as procedural and in hospital outcomes.  
  • The results of a total of 82 patients (68 males) were included in this analysis with a mean age of 61 +/-14 years.
  • In all but one case the MGuard stents were successfully deployed.
  • These included 41 STEMIs, 18 SVGs, with the remaining patients having an angiographic appearance of a thrombus laden lesion in a native coronary artery.
    • Of these, 9 presented with stable angina.
  • In the 63 stents in native coronaries, there were 2-LM, 28-LAD, 6-Cx and 27-RCA.
  • 2B3A inhibitors were used in only 20 cases (25%) and aspiration performed in 25 cases (31%). Predilation was performed in 63 cases.
  • Failed passage of the stent occurred in a single case to mid RCA lesion, where it was removed and the procedure completed successfully.
  • No reflow occurred in 2 cases (2.5%) one of which occurred prior to stent deployment.
  • In an additional case there was asymptomatic loss of a side branch.
  • Perforation of a vein graft occurred in a single case following stent deployment. This was effectively treated with deployment of an additional MGuard stent.
