Celebrating 25 Years of Success

Merit Medical designed and introduced the first digital inflation syringe and monitor called the Intellisystem® back in 1989. This same device, with many improvements and upgrades is still on the market today. This year we launched the Blue Diamond™ digital inflation syringe, the most advanced inflation syringe in the world used to inflate angioplasty balloons and deploy vascular stents. In addition to the Intellisystem® and Blue Diamond™ brands, Merit Medical also sells the Monarch® digital inflation device launched in 1990. The BasixCOMPAK™ and the Big60™ represent Merit’s analog inflation syringe offering. Interventional cardiologists and radiologists have used more inflation devices from Merit Medical since 1989 than from any other supplier.

In 2012 Merit Medical Systems, Inc. will celebrate 25 years of being in business. Inflation devices represent only a few of the many products we offer. The accomplishments have been numerous and the growth of the company is impressive. From the founding in 1987, our sales have steadily grown and there has never been a year without at least one new product introduction (and usually many). It is exciting to be part of a progressive company that has contributed so much to the medical device industry. I am proud to be part of an organization that helps improve clinical outcomes in cardiology and radiology and also helps to improve the quality of life for the patients we ultimately serve.

Merit Medical Sponsors CIO Luncheon Symposium

At the 2012 Congress of Interventional Oncology Merit Medical will sponsor a luncheon symposium, featuring Katarina Malagari, MD and Julien Namur, Ph.D. The symposium will focus on three informative topics: the rationale for smaller spheres in certain pathologies; results from preclinical in-vivo studies utilizing smaller microspheres; and review of recent cases utilizing smaller microspheres (Pending 510(k)). We look forward to an informative and interactive symposium and invite you to join us.

Merit Medical is delighted to participate in the 2012 Congress of Interventional Oncology, as 2012 will be a milestone year for Merit’s embolic portfolio.

Merit Medical sparks product interest at November’s AIM/VEITH Symposium

Merit Medical was proud to participate in the 19th annual AIM/VEITH symposium held November 16-19, 2011 at the Hilton Hotel New York City, which attracted over 2,500 attendees. The traffic surrounding Merit’s product displays and hands-on demo stations was significant and gave physicians an opportunity to feel the quality and outstanding performance that Merit Medical’s products possess. One of the most popular work stations at the symposium was the Laureate Discovery which challenged participants to demo the new Laureate hydrophilic guide wire and its true one-to-one torque. Physicians were able to see the performance value of this highly superior product in a realistic vascular model, almost exactly as it would perform in the human body. Within the vascular model, physicians could also see the reliability of the wire’s long-lasting hydrophilic coating. Merit Medical also showed the new Maestro® microcatheter, its cutting edge digital inflation device–the Blue Diamond™, the EN Snare® endovascular snare system, Impress® hydrophilic catheters, as well as its rich embolic product line including Embosphere® and QuadraSphere® microspheres.
