vProtect(TM) Luminal Shield Stabilizes Vulnerable Plaque
Date:6/1/2009

Six-Month Follow-Up Shows Reduced Stenosis, Healthy Endothelial Regrowth in Vessel Treated Proactively for Vulnerable Plaque

DOYLESTOWN, Pa., June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Six months after placement of a vProtect(TM) Luminal Shield to treat a "vulnerable" plaque, a follow-up exam revealed reduced plaque burden and reduced stenosis in the target vessel. The exam was part of the SECRITT I trial, a randomized study designed to evaluate the vProtect(TM) Luminal Shield as a prophylactic treatment for non-flow-limiting vulnerable plaques. The SECRITT I trial is sponsored and conducted by Erasmus University in Rotterdam. The 6-month follow-up exam was performed on May 20 by an interventional cardiology team led by Professor Patrick Serruys, the principal investigator for the SECRITT I study. Evelyn Regar, MD, PhD moderated the case at the EuroPCR congress in Barcelona. The vProtect(TM) Luminal Shield is manufactured by Prescient Medical, which plans to pursue a vulnerable plaque indication in the future.

The patient, a 75-year-old woman, was treated six months earlier for a culprit lesion in the left anterior descending coronary artery. At that time the SECRITT investigators, using a combination of imaging techniques, also located a vulnerable plaque in the patient's left circumflex artery. The lesion was unremarkable by angiography (37% diameter stenosis); such lesions are usually not treated, even though vulnerable plaques are prone to rupture with potentially fatal consequences. A 3.5 mm vProtect(TM) Luminal Shield was placed in the vessel (reference vessel diameter 2.74 mm), resulting in a post-procedural stenosis of 30%.

The 6-month angiographic follow-up exam was performed per study protocol using a variety of imaging techniques: multi-slice CT, intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), IVUS-virtual histology (IVUS-VH), angiography, and optical coherence tomography (OCT). Additional details on the SECRITT I
