FFR System Enhanced, Integrates With Several Hemo Systems

The wireless PressureWire Aeris FFR measurement system.

A marketing agreement with Siemens Medical Solutions unveiled at ACC 2010 expands access to wireless PressureWire Aeris fractional flow reserve (FFR) measurement system. Siemen’s AXIOM Sensis XP cath lab hemodynamic recording system can now immediately display, measure and save FFR data. This documents the severity of coronary lesions, together with other procedural data and angiographic imagery. The FFR system is now compatible with the GE Mac-Lab Hemodynamic Recording System, Mennen Horizon XVu and the McKesson Horizon Cardiology Hemo solution.

The wireless technology of the PressureWire Aeris also eliminates cables crossing the sterile field.

A modified version of the PressureWire Certus FFR wire was also introduced at ACC 2010. It includes a new design and functionality that will provide physicians with more controlled handling. It is the only guide wire to offer the combined measurement of pressure and temperature, which enables calculations of FFR, coronary flow reserve (CFR) and an index of microcirculatory resistance (IMR).
