Corguard

The Corguard Sirolimus-Eluting Coronary Stent System is a cobalt-chromium Sirolimus-coated stent mounted on a delivery platform including an angioplasty balloon and 40-micron integrated embolic filter.  The Corguard System has been designed to protect myocardial tissue in patients with symptomatic ischemic heart disease by improving coronary luminal diameter while simultaneously capturing and removing embolic material during coronary artery stenting. The integrated filter allows for a short landing zone, which is designed to provide better embolic protection for side branches.

The Corguard System is in development and not available, worldwide.

The Contego Medical Corguard System is designed to minimize myocardial damage from distal embolization in coronary interventional procedures.
