in improving carotid stenting outcomes," said Chuck Foltz, vice president, Abbott Vascular. "We are proud of our leadership in carotid stenting trials, with more than 10,000 patients enrolled in Abbott trials in the United States. These studies demonstrate that carotid stenting is making a difference in the lives of patients."

New Study Evaluates Next-Generation Embolic Protection Device

Abbott's next-generation Emboshield PRO(TM) Embolic Protection System, currently available in Europe, is under safety and effectiveness evaluation in PROTECT, a new U.S. clinical trial which recently began enrolling patients. The study will include 320 high surgical risk patients at 50 U.S. clinical sites. Patients will be evaluated at 30 days following stent placement to gather safety and efficacy data to support a 510(k) application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emboshield PRO.
