SMT announces CE* mark for Supraflex Cruz

first_img SMT (Sahajanand Medical Technologies) has announced that it has received CE* mark for its next-generation Supraflex stent system, called Supraflex Cruz.Supraflex Cruz is a Sirolimus-eluting stent built on a Cobalt Chromium Platform having been implanted in more than 2,50,000 patients in India and in selected international markets over the last three years. The stent design provides physicians access to the most difficult and tortuous lesions with ease. The stent retains all the benefits of the Supraflex stent, viz, Ultrathin strut thickness (60 microns for all diameters and lengths), blend of proprietary biodegradable polymers to release the drug, very thin layer of polymers, high radial strength, and low crossing profile.Cruz promises superior deliverability with an innovative design of dual Z link connecting valley to valley and better side-branch access. With the help of Cruz, complex cases can be concluded faster and harmful exposure of radiation to the physician will be reduced. Also, the trackability will void the need for additional hardware.Clinical studies Supraflex Cruz has undergone multiple clinical studies including the most advanced OCT studies (Sibi and Taxco OCT study) showing healing pattern post deployment of the stent. Faster endothelisation represents better healing pattern.Sibi OCT study demonstrated that Supraflex Cruz had close to 91 per cent endothelialisation in 35 days. In the Taxco study, Supraflex Cruz was compared with market leading Everolimus-eluting stent in a head-to-head comparison at six months. The study showed both the stents had more than 97 per cent endothelialisation at six months.Further clinical studies on Cruz are planned across Europe, India, Latin America and the rest of the world in the coming two years. These clinical trials will test Supraflex Cruz in a challenging patient population in randomised clinical trials including multivessel, diabetics, ACS, high bleeding risk patients and fragile patients (aged over 75 years).Making the latest announcement, Ganesh Sabat, CEO, SMT said, “We look forward to working with physicians across Europe to offer this highly deliverable drug-eluting stent to the thousands of patients who would have been unable to undergo PCI due to complex anatomy.”The company recently completed Talent trial in Europe involving 23 centres in seven countries on 1,435 patients which was published in ‘The Lancet’. In this trial, SMT’s Supraflex came out with flying colours against the market leader stent, showcasing best-in-class safety and efficacy in global patients’ population. Also, this trial was presented at a US cardiology conference TCT MD in the late-breaking session.Supraflex Cruz will help the patient and the doctors by decreasing the procedure time for physicians thereby reducing the intake of harmful radiation and ensuring lesser complications during the complex procedure due to better deliverability of the stent. Also, physicians will be able to treat a more challenging patient population which were left untreated or referred to bypass surgery.

Landlords lose challenge against pandemic renter protections

first_imgA federal judge has rejected a lawsuit from a group of New York landlords that sought to challenge pandemic protections for tenants. (iStock)A group of New York landlords are considering an appeal after a federal judge rejected their bid to challenge tenant protections put in place by the City Council.The landlords argued that the measures, passed by the Council in May as part of a Covid-relief effort, violated their constitutional rights, according to Crain’s.Read moreRealtor groups sue to block federal eviction banNew measure protects restaurants, retailers who violate leasesFrom LA to NYC, landlords are suing to resume evictions But Judge Ronnie Abrams said they hadn’t made their case.“Plaintiffs have expressed some legitimate concerns, and the court recognizes the toll the pandemic has taken on them, in addition to their tenants, all New Yorkers and millions more around the world,” the judge wrote. However, “the court cannot conclude that these three challenged laws violate any of plaintiffs’ constitutional rights.”Stephen Younger, the lawyer representing the landlords, said his clients were weighing an appeal.“The decision upholding these laws will only inflict more pain on property owners,” he said, “because they shift rent losses onto their backs at a time when they’re unable to afford these sorts of losses.”The three laws the landlords took issue with are known as the residential harassment law, the commercial harassment law and the guaranty law, which respectively block landlords from threatening tenants who are affected by the pandemic, and relieves personal guarantors in certain leases from enforcement of those guarantees.“This is a major victory for small-business owners who need protection from landlords during this unprecedented time,” Council Speaker Corey Johnson said in a statement.

Everton player turns scout and gives his backing to transfer

first_imgA year ago Yerry Mina was still a Palmeiras player, about to go through a remarkable twelve months with ups and downs. In the January transfer window, the then 23 year old moved to Barcelona and quickly the Catalan media were on his back. There were tales from training of people being surprised at Mina’s level… it was thought he was nowhere near ready to play for the Spanish club, and there were doubts if he ever would be.Mina had cost Barcelona just under €12m and there was a worry whether they’d be able to get the money back. A loan elsewhere in La Liga was thought to be the best option.Then the World Cup happened, and the defender was one of the stars of the show.After countless transfer rumours he eventually joined Everton for around €30m, and is still trying to find his feet in the Premier League.Barcelona have been looking to add numbers in central defence since and after Mina was their first Colombian, they’ve signed another in Jeison Murillo from Valencia.The pair are friends, and showing there’s no hard feelings, Mina has spoken to Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo to give his own backing to the transfer, and a scouting report: “He is a very technical player, he likes to go out with the ball, he is very clear and he delivers the ball very well. He is quick, he goes well to the tackle and is good with his head.”Murillo will hope he’s not as easily cast aside as his friend. If he is, maybe Barca can look towards Everton again.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must Have.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoCNBC InternationalHere’s How Big Businesses in Singapore Are Managing the Impact of COVID-19.CNBC InternationalUndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoDating.comFind out where single guys are hanging out in Tung ChungDating.comUndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndoTheTopFiveVPNEnjoy Netflix Now Without Any RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPNUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題Undolast_img read more
