Surat: Sahajanand Medical Technologies (SMT) has received European CE marking for two Sirolimus eluting coronary stent systems - Supralimus® and Supralimus-Core®.

SMT offers Stainless Steel and Cobalt Chromium bare metal stents, Paclitaxel eluting Stainless Steel stent and Sirolimus eluting Stainless Steel and Cobalt Chromium stents.

Established in the year 1998, SMTPL became the first Indigenous Stent Manufacturer in world to have two DES systems in its product portfolio. SMTPL is the first company to get CE approval for DES with Biodegradable Polymers. All the DESs are made with proprietary blend of Biodegradable Polymers. The company has both Stainless Steel & Cobalt Chromium platforms.

Both Supralimus® and Supralimus-Core® range from 8 mm to 40 mm with one of lowest strut thickness of CE approved chromium-cobalt and stainless steel stents.

"The CE mark for Supralimus® and Supralimus-Core® is a significant accomplishment that substantiates our product's excellent clinical outcomes. This further confirms our commitment to providing patients and clinicians new treatment options for coronary artery disease." said Dhirajlal Kotadia-CEO of Sahajanand. "The excellent flexibility, highly deliverable system and proven safety and efficacy of Sirolimus with the biodegradable polymers make our stents an excellent choice for a variety of patients" he added.

"The drug coating in multiple layers with the use of biodegradable layers for the Supralimus and Supralimus Core stent is designed to deliver the drug in a biphasic manner: an initial burst dose, followed by a controlled release of the drug which will likely reduce late adverse clinical events compared to stents with non-biodegradable polymer" said Dr. Atul Abhyankar, Medical Director of SMT and a renowned cardiologist. "In the early days of evolution of drug eluting stents SMT had the foresight about the safety of biodegradable polymers and was the first to pioneer the utilization of biodegradable polymer on all of its type of drug -eluting stents " he added.
