July 2008
Cardiovascular Devices & Drugs;Jul2008, Vol. 14 Issue 7, p23
The article reports on the first administration of the vProtect Luminal Shield self-expanding intracoronary prosthesis from Prescient Medical in May 2008. Three patients with established cardiac ischemia were the first recipients of the prosthesis which was designed to limit arterial injury resulting from the deployment of stents. The first patients were treated by doctors Juan Granada and Juan Delgado. It cites the features of the prosthesis which include longitudinal primary structural elements.
