PLC Systems Announces Approval of First European Study to Evaluate RenalGuard(TM)
Date:5/30/2008

and patients with pre-existing renal failure -- all of whose conditions make them at risk for CIN when they require interventional procedures that use radiographic contrast media. CIN is the third most common cause of in-hospital acute renal failure. It is associated with significant in-hospital mortality rates, and increases in long-term mortality rates, major in-hospital adverse cardiac events, and the risk of having to undergo renal dialysis therapy. Any of these can result in prolonged hospital stays and increased medical costs. Studies indicate that approximately 15-20% of all patients undergoing image-guided cardiology and radiology procedures are at risk of developing CIN. The estimated mortality rate for patients that acquire CIN may be as high as 35%.

About PLC Systems Inc.

PLC Systems Inc. is a medical technology company specializing in innovative technologies for the cardiac and vascular markets.

PLC's newest product program, RenalGuard (an investigational device in the U.S.), targets a costly and potentially deadly medical condition known as Contrast-Induced Nephropathy (CIN). Patients undergoing image-guided procedures, such as those performed when placing drug-eluting stents, can develop CIN because of the potentially toxic effects that contrast media used during these procedures can have on the kidneys. RenalGuard is based on the theory that creating and maintaining a high urine output is beneficial to patients undergoing imaging procedures where contrast agents are used. The company received its CE Mark Certificate for RenalGuard, and has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to commence a U.S. pivotal trial to study the safety and effectiveness of RenalGuard in the prevention of CIN.

Headquartered in Franklin, Massachusetts, PLC pioneered the CO2 Heart Laser System, which cardiac surgeons use to perform CO2 transmyocardial revascularization (TMR) to alleviate symptoms of severe angina. CO2 TMR offer
