Revenues for the third quarter of 2012 and for the first 9 months of the year totaled €673.6 thousand and €1,823.2 thousand, respectively. These figures represent 88% growth over the first 9 months of 2011. The revenue results reflect momentum from the growing adoption of STENTYS stents by cardiologists in the 8 European countries where premarketing activities are underway.

Gonzague Issenmann, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of STENTYS, concludes: "Our third-quarter sales performance is in line with our market plan and our robust growth is suggestive of the potential we believe our Self-Apposing stent platform represents, particularly in clinical settings such as AMI."

Upcoming Financial Results

STENTYS expects to publish its 2012 annual revenues on 29 January 2013, after market.


STENTYS is developing and commercializing innovative solutions for the treatment of patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI, or heart attack) and complex coronary artery disease. STENTYS Self-Apposing® Stents are designed to adapt to vessels with ambiguous or fluctuating diameters, particularly in the post-infarction phase, in order to prevent the malapposition problems associated with conventional stents. In the APPOSITION III clinical trial, STENTYS stents demonstrated a very low 30-day mortality rate among 1,000 high-risk AMI patients when compared to recent studies with conventional stents.
