FlowCardia Introduces Endovascular Option to Amputation, Bypass Surgery


December 12, 2007

FlowCardia's three peripheral CROSSER Catheters — CROSSER 14P, CROSSER 14S and CROSSER 18 CTO Recanalization — are endovascular tools used by interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons and interventional cardiologists to cross CTOs to help restore blood flow to the lower legs. The CROSSER is a rapid exchange catheter delivered over standard .014 inch and .018 inch guide wires that utilizes high frequency vibration to cross CTOs, reportedly allowing for subsequent debulking, balloon angioplasty and stent placement.
