PARIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Regulatory News:
STENTYS (Paris:STNT) (FR0010949404 — STNT), a French group specialized in medical technologies for interventional cardiology, today reports activities from MYLIVE 2018, one of the leading Asian congresses in interventional cardiology, held from July 26 to 28, 2018 in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia.
The Xposition S sirolimus eluting self-apposing stent was featured in two live-case broadcasts. The first case, showing the use of the self-apposing stent in left main stenting with OCT guidance, was performed by Dr Selvaraj, Hospital Serdang, Selangor, Malaysia. The second case on the use of the self-apposing stent in aneurysmal vessel was performed by Dr Abdullah Ramaiah, Hospital Serdang, Selangor, Malaysia. Both cases were successfully conducted and received positive feedback from the distinguished moderator panel.
In a session entitled “New generation stents and devices,” Dr Selvaraj presented the use of a balloon-delivery self-apposing technology.
During the “How to Treat: Expert session,” Dr Abdullah Ramaiah presented the case of a large ectatic vessel treated with Xposition S, that he later presented at “The role of Self-Apposing stents in patients with Atypical anatomy” session during an evening symposium which was followed by Dr Liew, Queen Elizabeth Hospital II – Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, commenting on the interim analysis of the ongoing STENTYS SIZING registry, presented by the company at TCT 2017 congress last November.
Attendees also had the opportunity to develop their skills by placing STENTYS self-apposing stents during a simulator training sessions.
Christophe Lottin, Chief Executive Officer of STENTYS, comments: “The strong presence of our Xposition S self-apposing stent during this prestigious congress shows both the need for a self-apposing technology and its progressive adoption in the rapidly growing coronary stent market in South East Asia. On this occasion, we were able to offer for the very first time our new simulator-based training program. The high profile of Xposition S combined with our commercial network across the region, recently enhanced by the acquisition of MINVASYS, represents a solid platform for our future growth.”
