ClearWay RC Catheter Offers Small Doses, Low Pressure


August 26, 2008

Atrium Medical Corp.’s ClearWay RX is a therapeutic perfusion catheter indicated for localized delivery of therapeutic agents to the coronary and peripheral vasculature.

A low-pressure perfusion catheter that incorporates a patented microporous PTFE balloon, Clearway RX enables controlled infusion at very low pressures (2 - 4atm) for maximum local therapeutic effect at a discrete targeted location. Delivering a smaller quantity of a preferred therapeutic agent locally has been shown to help reduce systemic effects.

ClearWay RX’s OCI (occlusion, compression, infusion) technology offers a novel delivery approach to enhance various pharmaceutical agents effect with more localized delivery with far less systemic payloads.
