NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Svelte Medical Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has initiated its European clinical trial at the Thoraxcenter Research Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands for its “Stent-on-a-Wire” (SOAW) cobalt–chromium Bare Metal Stent. The SOAW delivery system represents a more deliverable, very low profile system that can reduce procedural costs and can potentially lower the rate of stent thrombosis. Professor Serruys, Chief of Interventional Cardiology at Erasmus Medical center in the Netherlands commented that “this device will simplify the stenting procedure and allow us to downsize the guiding catheter in many patients.” The company anticipates initiating additional trials in Brazil and Columbia during the first quarter of 2010.
