First Human Trial

Here is a picture of the very first patient implanted with our bifurcating stent in Sao Paulo. The patient was a 50 year old male smoker who was presented to the emergency room with crushing chest pain. He was found to be having anterior myocardial infarction.

Treatment time was of the essence in order to preserve heart muscle.

As we began the procedure you see the proximal narrowing or stenosis at the center of circle A followed by the bifurcation lesion at the center of circle B.
