STENTYS, a medical technology company commercializing the world first and only Self-Apposing coronary stent, today announces its half-year results to June 30, 2016, as approved by the Board meeting of September 15, 2016.

First-half highlights Rights issue resulting in gross proceeds of €12.6 million: the proceeds of this successful issuance of 5,621,742 new shares will enable STENTYS to continue its development and its geographic expansion, firstly in Europe by extending its network of distributors and then by obtaining approvals in countries outside the CE Marking zone. The funds raised should also help finance further clinical trials in order to obtain data for the reimbursement of the Xposition S stent in France. CE Marking granted for the treatment of the left main coronary artery: when treating lesions of the left main coronary artery with conventional balloon-expandable DES, the artery’s large diameter and significant tapering along the segment can result in structural deformations of the stent and significant malapposition. The STENTYS Self-Apposing stent adapts to vessels of varying diameters and perfectly fits the vessel wall along its entire length.
