Eurocor announces the appointment of Pyramed Ltd. for marketing its coronary and peripheral Drug-Eluting Balloons and other products in UK and Ireland

  Eurocor GmbH, a leading company for endovascular and cardiovascular devices announces the appointment of Pyramed, subsidiary of United Drug Medical, a division of United Drug PLC (Ireland), as the exclusive distributor of DIOR® coronary and FREEWAY™ peripheral drug-eluting balloons and other products in the UK and Ireland.

With immediate effect the separate Pyramed Cardiology and Pyramed Interventional Sales-forces and management teams will be promoting DIOR® coronary and FREEWAY™ peripheral drug-eluting balloons and other products to Cardiologists and Radiologists in the UK and Ireland.

Management Comments:
Mark Harty, Managing Director at Pyramed said “Drug-eluting balloons show great promise in treating arterial disease and the market is receptive to simpler technologies that allow patients to take blood thinning medication for a shorter time than with drug coated stents. The recently announced results of the Valentines Trial demonstrate that Eurocor have an unrivalled global treatment database with drug-eluting balloons for coronary In-stent restenosis (ISR). The potential in peripheral arterial disease is also significant as overall the use of stents is lower and restenosis rates are high. Drug-eluting balloons have a role in treating peripheral in-stent restenosis, as well as diffuse and small vessel disease in infrapopliteal interventions. We look forward to working with Eurocor as we bring these exciting products to the market in the UK and Ireland”.

Jürgen Zielke, Vice President Sales Europe at Eurocor GmbH commented “We are delighted with the agreement. Pyramed’s strength and breadth in the cardiac catheterisation laboratories and radiology departments, as well as their logistic and marketing services capabilities are advantages for Eurocor in these key markets.
