Prescients luminal shield stent system nets CE Mark
Prescient Medical has received CE Mark approval to commercialize its vProtect Luminal Shield stent system, which may be used in improving coronary artery luminal diameter in patients with symptomatic ischemic heart disease.

The vProtect Luminal Shield is designed to minimize arterial injury and its consequences, allowing the vessel to regain and maintain healthy physiological function. The device is a low radial force, thin-strut, self-expanding nitinol mesh, designed specifically for softer plaques, according to the Doylestown, Pa.-based company.
