We are a medical device company focusing on the development and
commercialization of our proprietary MicroNet(TM) stent platform technology for the
treatment of complex vascular and coronary disease. A stent is an expandable
"scaffold-like" device, usually constructed of a metallic material, that is
inserted into an artery to expand the inside passage and improve blood flow. Our
MicroNet, a micron mesh sleeve, is wrapped over a stent to provide embolic
protection in stenting procedures.
Our CGuard(TM) carotid embolic prevention system ("CGuard EPS") combines MicroNet
and a self-expandable nitinol stent in a single device for use in carotid artery
applications. Our CGuard EPS received CE mark approval in the European Union in
March 2013, and we launched its release on a limited basis in October 2014.
