Medinol today announced United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for the EluNIR-PERL drug-eluting stent (DES) for the treatment of coronary artery disease.

EluNIR-PERL builds upon the proven performance and clinical data of the EluNIR DES system. As the latest evolution in the EluNIR DES family, EluNIR-PERL features four radiopaque markers, two at each end of the stent, and a hybrid polymer-metal radiopaque catheter tip. These unique features allow outstanding visualization during PCI procedures whether navigating through complex anatomies or precise placement of the stent.

"We are pleased to bring technologies to the U.S. that focus both on benefit to patients as well as unique and meaningful advantages to surgeons, allowing for precise stent placement, shorter procedure times and reduced radiation exposure," said Yoram Richter, CEO of Medinol.

"We are proud to distribute one of the world's best drug-eluting stents via our intuitive and easy-to-use SaaS+ platform, which reduces layers in the supply chain," said Jae Lee, CEO of CoSo Health.

EluNIR-PERL is exclusively available in the United States through CoSo Health, a healthcare supply and logistics company.
