Medical device pioneer Stentys announced today that clinical results from the ‘OPEN I’ clinical study using its bifurcated stent will be presented at this week’s ‘EuroPCR 2008’ international medical meeting on cardiovascular intervention. The data, to be presented by Eberhard Grube, M.D., Chief of Cardiology and Angiology at HELIOS Heart Center (Germany) and Principal Investigator of the OPEN I study, will look at safety results after 30 days post-implantation of the Stentys bifurcated stent in the first 13 patients.

About Stentys

Based in Paris, Stentys intends to make treatment of blocked coronary artery bifurcations as simple and effective as a conventional stenting procedure. The Company has developed the world's first next-generation dedicated stent for treatment of blocked coronary artery bifurcations that is designed so that hundreds of thousands of patients might avoid open-chest surgery. To date, the Stentys bifurcated stent has been successfully implanted in patients as part of the OPEN 1 trial, taking routine interventional time to complete; the patients were released from the ICU within hours of implantation of the Stentys bifurcated stent and were discharged from the hospital shortly after the procedure.
