U.S. Food and Drug Administration Clears Way for Multi-Center Clinical Trial of IDEV Technologies' SUPERA Peripheral Stent
Date:3/18/2009

Novel Stent Platform Designed for Radial Strength, Flexibility

HOUSTON, March 18 /PRNewswire/ -- IDEV Technologies Incorporated, (IDEV) an emerging leader in the development and marketing of minimally invasive technologies, announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved an investigational device exemption (IDE) for a multi-center clinical trial of its SUPERA stent, a novel stent platform designed for the treatment of peripheral artery disease (PAD) in the superficial femoral artery (SFA). PAD affects more than 8 million people in the U.S. alone and, by the age of 65, 12-20 percent of the population will develop PAD, according to the American Heart Association.

"The approval of this IDE marks a significant step forward toward understanding the potential benefits of the unique properties of the SUPERA stent," Dr. Rosenfeld said. "Members of the physician community have already shown a high level of interest in this novel stent platform and IDEV's commitment to generating prospective clinical data will help us demonstrate the promise of this device."

SUPERA has demonstrated superior properties in engineering tests compared to nitinol laser cut slotted tube stents resulting in greater than four times the radial s
