REMEDIAL II Results on PLC System's RenalGuard® to be Presented at ACC 2011's Late Breaking Clinical Trial Session
Date:4/1/2011

FRANKLIN, Mass., April 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PLC Systems Inc. (OTCBB: PLCSF), a company focused on innovative medical device technologies, today reported that final results from the REMEDIAL II investigator-sponsored clinical trial of its RenalGuard System™ in Italy are scheduled to be presented at 11:57 a.m. CT on Monday, April 4, 2011, at the American College of Cardiology's (ACC) 60th Annual Scientific Session & Expo in New Orleans, Louisiana. Additionally, PLC will be demonstrating RenalGuard at its booth (#3932) at the conference.

Dr. Carlo Briguori, MD, PhD, Chief, Laboratory of Interventional Cardiology, Clinica Mediterranea, Naples, Italy, and Co-Director of Clinical Research, Laboratory of Interventional Cardiology, San Raffaele Hospital, Milan, Italy, the principal investigator for the REMEDIAL II trial, will present the results during a Late Breaking Clinical Trial session at the conference.

The REMEDIAL II trial is a randomized multi-center clinical trial in Italy designed to provide an assessment of the potential benefits of induced diuresis with automated matched hydration therapy utilizing RenalGuard, compared to a control group, in reducing the incidence of Contrast Induced Nephropathy (CIN) in patients with baseline impairment in renal function undergoing cardiac catheterization procedures and percutaneous coronary interventions.  

About RenalGuard®

RenalGuard is designed to reduce the potentially toxic effects that contrast media can have on the kidneys when it is administered to patients during certain medical imaging procedures. The RenalGuard System consists of a proprietary console and accompanying single-use sets.  With its automated matched fluid replacement capability, RenalGuard is intended to promote and maintain high urine outputs and minimize the risk to patients of over- or under-hydration during image-guided catheterization procedures where contrast media are routinely administered.
