The TiTAN OPTIMAX Coronary Stent System is indicated for improving coronary luminal diameters in adult patients with symptomatic ischemic heart disease including patients with acute myocardial infarction (STEMI/NSTEMI, unstable angina) and patients with concomitant diabetes mellitus due to de novo coronary artery lesions.

Tino mechanism of action

TINO is a Bioactive chemical compound with unique properties whose molecular structure is made of Titanium, Nitrogen and Oxygen.

  • Reduction of the inflammatory phenomenon
  • Improved biocompatibility
  • Reduced platelet aggregation and fibrinous growth
  • Acceleration of the reendothelialization phenomenon
  • Reduction of the thrombotic process
  • Presence of surface NO

Bare Metal Stent

Properties of TiNO:

  • Reduction of inflammation
  • Reduction of platelet aggregation
  • Reduction of fibrinous growth
  • Reduction of the thrombotic process
  • Acceleration of re-endothelialization
  • Inhibition of SMC proliferation
  • 44-47% reduction in neointimal proliferation vs bare stent

TiNOcoated stent provides similar neointimal proliferation reduction compared to Sirolimus eluting stents in the porcine model

Post implantation

Stent coating with TiNO provides :

  • Effective Restenosis & late Loss reduction
  • Reduced platelet & fibrin deposition
  • Minimized inflammation
  • Minimized thrombus formation
  • Fastest Re-Endothelialization and healing
  • Barrier againts toxic ions release
  • No Polymer & no aggressive drug
  • Sustained efficacy over time
  • Reduced DAPT treatment period

Prix Galien

Titan Bioactive stent has demonstrated proven performance meaning non inferiority in efficacy and superiority in safety in over 3000 patients in Coronary TiTAN stent clinical program with randomized clinical studies versus all generations of drug eluting stents in the indication of ACS (STEMI/NSTEMI) or heart attack. The 3rd generation of bioactive stent, Titan Optimax, has been awarded Prix Galien in the treatment of acute myocardial infarction. 

First in man evidence

BAS @ 6 months
Significant late Loss
reduction versus Bare Metal
Stent at 6 months

BAS @ 5 years
Efficacy up to 5 years versus Bare Metal Stent

The TiNO bioactive stent technology was born jointly in France and Switzerland (Bern) among the students of Professor Gruentzig (Prof. Windecker, Professor Meier, Professor Hess)…

This technology is protected by a worldwide patent also covering the USA.

Clinical Evidence in ACS

3 RANDOMIZED UNIVERSITARY CONTROLLED TRIALS :
B.A.S (TiTAN) versus 3 GENERATIONS D.E.S in ACS

TiTAN, BIOLOGICALLY ACTIVE, stent provides a rate of MACE (Major Adverse Cardiac Event) at 1 year of the same magnitude or non-inferior compared with that of PHARMACOLOGICALLY active stents but associated with a better safety profile (AMI, Death and Thrombosis), a trend that increases over time to achieve at 5 years differences that have become significant in terms of SAFETY.

CLINICAL RESULTS in ACS
SIMILAR EFFICACY & SUPERIOR SAFETY

HOW TO EXPLAIN SUPERIORITY OF BAS OVER DES IN SAFETY ? 
OCT EVIDENCE

  • Low or moderate neointimal hyperplasia
  • Complete endothelialization @14 days 18 & 36 months
  • No visible thrombus
  • No negative Late Loss
  • Good vascular healing
  • Short DAPT needed

  • Absence or very limited neointimal hyperplasia
  • Incomplete endothelialization @18 & 36 months
  • Presence of thrombus @18 & 36 months
  • (EES: 18% – PES: 22.2%)
  • Vascular healing impeded
  • Prolonged DAPT Required

Superior biomechanics

Helicoidal patented design

  • Open cells design to preserve good side branch access and minimize the reduction of the collateral blood flow
