“2023 is off to a strong start as we execute against our U.S. commercial opportunity, including optimizing and expanding our field presence to meet strong TCAR demand,” said Erica Rogers, CEO of Silk Road Medical. “We also achieved multiple regulatory and product milestones, including the full market release of ENFLATE, our balloon catheter purpose built for TCAR.

First Quarter 2023 Financial Results
Revenue for the first quarter of 2023 was $40.1 million, an increase of $12.1 million or 43%, compared to the first quarter of 2022. Growth was driven primarily by growing TCAR adoption.
Gross profit for the first quarter of 2023 was $27.6 million compared to $19.4 million for the first quarter of 2022. Gross margin was 69% for the first quarter of 2023 and 2022. Gross margin in both periods was impacted by production variances.
Operating expenses were $44.5 million for the first quarter of 2023, compared to $35.4 million in the comparable prior year period, which represents an increase of 26%.
