PRESS RELEASE

Elixir Medical Corporation to Unveil Game-Changing DynamXTM Metallic Stent at the 29th Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics Conference

Elixir Announces Schedule of Programs for TCT 2017

Milpitas, Calif.  (October 11, 2017) – Elixir Medical Corporation, a leader in the development of breakthrough adaptive remodeling technologies designed to mimic the normal arterial function after cardiovascular and peripheral vascular disease intervention, announced today it will unveil a game-changing metallic drug eluting stent (DES) platform at this year’s Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) conference in Denver, which runs from October 29 – November 2.

DynamX is a 71 microns thin metallic DES designed to match the ease of use and acute performance of state-of-the-art DES. Unlike DES, however, DynamX allows the vessel to exhibit its normal pulsatile motion and adaptive remodeling capabilities.  Elixir will be sharing for the first time the concept, design, data from preclinical testing, and clinical program for its DynamXTM Stent at a signature evening symposium on Monday, October 30th 6:00 – 8:00 pm.

“DynamX ushers a new era of transformation from the current metallic stents which cage the vessel into stents that allow pulsatile motion and adaptive remodeling, mimicking the normal vessel function of patients.” said Motasim Sirhan, founder, and CEO of Elixir Medical. “Elixir continues its commitment to developing breakthrough adaptive remodeling technologies to better address patient needs around the world beyond the capabilities of today’s technologies.”

Elixir continues to advance its fully bioresorbable scaffold programs and will present its latest trial results throughout TCT.
