Elixir Medical to Present 9 and 12-Month Clinical and Imaging Data for the DynamX Bioadaptor, Showcasing the Next Frontier Beyond Stenting at EuroPCR 2019

May 14, 2019

MILPITAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 14, 2019--

Elixir Medical Corporation, a developer of products that combine state-of-the-art medical devices with advanced pharmaceuticals, announced today that it will release at EuroPCR in Paris 9 and 12-month clinical and imaging data for the DynamX™ Novolimus-eluting Bioadaptor System, a next-generation coronary intervention system designed to treat blocked arteries via a novel “uncaging” mechanism. EuroPCR is the annual meeting of the European Association for Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions.

Conventional drug-eluting stents cage the coronary artery in a rigid, immobile frame inhibiting the vessel’s natural ability to expand in order to preserve the blood flow during disease progression. Stents also impede the artery’s physiologic pulsatility and hemodynamics during the cardiac cycle, potentially contributing to further adverse outcomes.

Elixir’s Symposium on Wed., May 22 will feature the DynamX Bioadaptor that allows the vessel to resume pulsatility, restore positive adaptive remodeling and vessel angulation, and return to a natural hemodynamic state – allowing the treated artery to elegantly return to de novo function.

Following are some of the highlights of Elixir Medical’s scientific sessions at EuroPCR in chronological order at the Palais Des Congres de Paris in Central European Summer Time (CEST):
