Micell Technologies Receives CE Mark Approval for MiStent SES

Micell Technologies, Inc received CE (Conformite Europeenne) Mark approval for its MiStent® Sirolimus Eluting Absorbable Polymer Coronary Stent System (MiStent SES®) introducing a thin-strut stent that features elimination of the coating from the stent in 45-60 days and the complete absorption of the polymer coating within 90 days. The MiStent SES is unique in providing local drug delivery both during and after the period of polymer absorption, thereby eliminating long-term polymer exposure, a potential cause of delayed healing and late adverse events.
Micell's Chief Executive Officer, Arthur J. Benvenuto, commented, "The MiStent SES brings a new paradigm of safety without compromise to efficacy or deliverability. With polymer absorption faster than any other DES currently available, we believe the MiStent SES provides a long-term safety profile of a highly deliverable bare metal stent."
