Cordis stent gets CE OK

Interventional technology developer Cordis, a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary, has received CE Mark approval to market its Cypher Select sirolimus-eluting coronary stent in all member states of the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA), and Switzerland.

Approval of the device, which is used for the treatment of in-stent restenosis in patients with coronary artery disease, is an expansion of the approval previously granted to the firm's Cypher sirolimus-eluting coronary stent, which received the CE Mark last February, according to Cordis of Warren, NJ.
