CiTop ExPander Guidewire Designed for Coronary Arteries
Ovalum will feature its CiTop ExPander Guidewire at TCT 2008. According to the company, the guidewire was recently used in a successful study on traversing chronic total occlusions in the coronary arteries.
The CiTop ExPander guidewire is designed to provide a simpler and more efficient means to open the chronic total occlusion, thus avoiding the need for coronary bypass surgery.
At this time, the device has not been approved by U.S. or European regulatory bodies.
