Date:5/12/2011

FRANKLIN, Mass., May 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PLC Systems Inc. (OTCBB: PLCSF), a company focused on innovative medical device technologies, today announced it will demonstrate its innovative new product, RenalGuard®, at EuroPCR, the annual meeting of the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI).  More than 11,000 clinicians and medical professionals from around the world are expected to attend this event, which will take place in Paris, France from May 17-20, 2011.
