    NIR is NOT

    Surveys of cardiologists tell me that AVEI's GFX stent is preferred over BSX's NIR. This stock is going to $50!!! Medtronic will buy AVEI.

    • Altho I have not yet tried a NIR stent I have at
      least handled and seen the product. I do not feel that
      radiopacity is one of the more crucial aspects of a stent
      design. Even Columbo rates it down the list of important
      attributes. He considers 1. deliverabilty
      2. radial
      support 3. plaque coverage (no prolapse) and 4. very low
      possibility to dislodge the stent as the most important stent
      design aspects. Radiopacity is 5th on his list.
      I
      think the NIR stent will do very well and while the GFX
      will do well also you can only cut the pie so many
      ways. While some disagree I also think that bundling is
      important and in this area BSX has a large advantage over
      AVE.
      I have heard that BSX is selling $ 4 million
      per day in NIR's even with their limited rollout.
      That number will obviously increase over the short
      term. With the stent "sox" and no need to post-deploy
      the stent, the NIR will do quite well even if it is
      only "equal" in deliverability to the GFX. Make no
      mistake about it, AVE stents will sell well also, but
      watch out for the NIR.

    • why isn't there some interesting comments of is there going to be any money made, instead of all this BSabout who's who. sounds like everyone's an -IDIOT.
