Spectranetics Enrolls First Patient in PATENT Trial for the Treatment of Instent Restenosis
Date:9/26/2007

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Sept. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Spectranetics Corporation (Nasdaq: SPNC) today announced it has enrolled the first patient in the PATENT trial utilizing the Company's TURBO elite(TM) laser catheters in combination with the recently FDA cleared TURBO-Booster(TM).

The PATENT trial is a prospective registry of 100 patients at up to 10 sites in Germany. The trial will assess patency as measured by duplex ultrasound at various intervals up to 12 months following the procedure. It will also assess safety as measured by adverse events up to 12 months following the procedure. In the initial procedure performed at the Leipzig Heart Center, four focal lesions were treated successfully with the TURBO-Booster and TURBO elite 2.0mm catheter in a 20cm long stented superficial femoral artery.

"The initial result from this Spectranetics device looks very promising, as the new features allow for ablation of more tissue in larger vessels," said Andrej Schmidt, M.D., of the University of Leipzig-Heart Center. "Instent restenosis in a superficial femoral artery represents one of the most challenging procedures in our practice. The current standard of care, such as repeat balloon angioplasty, does not have good results as these lesions tend to reoccur. We are very excited with the start of this study in Germany, and we look forward to examining the mid- and long-term results of this new therapy."

John G. Schulte, Spectranetics' President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are very pleased to have begun this trial at one of Europe's most prestigious medical centers. We believe that instent restenosis in the superficial femoral artery may represent 25% to 35% of all above-the-knee proce
