Tryton launches stent system in eight European countries

20 Sept 2010

Tryton Medical, Inc., a developer of stents designed to treat bifurcation lesions, has launched the Tryton Stent System in Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Turkey, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Latvia.

The Tryton Side Branch Stent System is designed to offer a dedicated strategy for treating atherosclerotic lesions in the side branch at the site of a bifurcation. Tryton’s highly deliverable cobalt chromium stent is deployed in the side branch artery using a standard single-wire balloon-expandable stent delivery system. A conventional drug-eluting stent is then placed in the main vessel.

“We are pleased to expand availability of the Tryton Stent System to additional countries in Europe and Eastern Europe, broadening our reach and bringing the Tryton solution to many more patients and clinicians,” said J. Greg Davis, president and CEO of Tryton Medical.

“I have been very pleased with my experience with the Tryton Stent, which provides a simple solution to a highly complex clinical problem,” said Imre Ungi, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor and director of Invasive Cardiology Division, Department of Cardiology at the University of Szeged in Hungary.

The Tryton Side Branch Stent System demonstrated excellent six-month clinical and angiographic results in a first-in-man study of the system and excellent six-month clinical results from almost 200 patients in four different registries with a rate of target lesion revascularization of less than four percent.

The stent system has received CE Mark approval in Europe and is commercially available in 21 countries throughout Europe and the Middle East. It is not approved in the United States.
