Atherectomy System Cleared for Use Below the Knee


June 22, 2010

The Jetstream G3 Small Fixed (SF) peripheral atherectomy catheter is smaller than previous versions of the Jetstream and offers a fixed cutter and longer catheter length to treat blockages below the knee (BTK).

It allows physicians to treat a broader range of peripheral vascular disease patients, including the greater number of patients with critical limb ischemia and diabetes in the BTK population.

The G3 SF is the only below-the-knee device on the market that offers active aspiration, a feature that continually removes debris from the treatment site. It is optimized for below-the-knee blockages and features a smaller, fixed cutter designed for enhanced performance in tortuosity and better navigation.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted 510(k) clearance for the device in June 2010.
