InspireMD announces independent study published in Journal
InspireMD announced the online publication of positive clinical data in a new independent study performed by Prof. Christian Wissgott, M.D., entitled "Clinical Results and Mechanical Properties of the Carotid CGuard Double-Layered Embolic Prevention Stent," which evaluated the company's CGuard EPS in patients with symptomatic or high-grade asymptomatic internal carotid artery stenosis. The study, published in the Journal of Endovascular Therapy online-ahead-of-print, is available digitally on the journal's OnlineFirst website section. The OnlineFirst section also includes an accompanying editorial written by Prof. Piotr Musialek, M.D., entitled "Carotid Artery Revascularization for Stroke Prevention: A New Era," which underscores the use of CGuard EPS as a novel approach to potentially reducing the risk of stroke by avoiding the risks associated with conventional carotid stenting.
