MicroVention Announces First Patient Enrollment In Clinical Trial To Compare Coiling Technologies For Treating Brain Aneurysms
Date:7/2/2012

TUSTIN, Calif., July 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MicroVention, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Terumo Corporation, today announced that enrollment has begun in the Hydrogel Endovascular Aneurysm Treatment (HEAT) clinical trial, a study of the use of coiling technologies to treat intracranial aneurysms.  This prospective, randomized, international multicenter trial is designed to compare clinical outcomes in patients treated with the new generation of the MicroVention hydrogel coils to those treated with bare platinum coils.  The HEAT trial will enroll up to 600 subjects from approximately 30 sites around the world.

The HEAT trial will allow us to better understand these lesions and advance their treatment."

Richard Cappetta, President and CEO of MicroVention, Inc., said: "The HEAT trial is intended to provide evidence that our second-generation hydrogel coil technologies provide superior long-term clinical outcomes compared to bare platinum coils.  In a recently published article in The Lancet reporting on our earlier HELPS trial results, MicroVention's first-generation HydroCoil® Embolic System demonstrated superior angiographic outcomes at 18 months compared to bare platinum coils.(1)  We believe that, with a comprehensive line of second-generation hydrogel technologies utilized in the HEAT trial, which includes the HydroFrame®, HydroFill® and HydroSoft® embolic coils, improvement in clinical efficacy should be even greater compared to bare platinum coils.  In addition, these new gel coils are muc
