FlowCardia CROSSER CTO Catheters Come in Over the Wire Platform


October 22, 2009

FlowCardia Inc. began offering its CROSSER 14S and CROSSER 14P peripheral chronic total occlusions (CTOs) recanalization catheters with an over the wire (OTW) delivery platform starting in October 2009.

The Over the Wire CROSSER Catheter delivery platform provides interventional cardiologists with an endovascular tool to treat even the most distal and complex peripheral occlusions. CROSSER OTW catheters facilitate guide wire exchanges using peripheral interventionalists' preferred delivery platform, thus providing various levels of catheter support, pushability, and steerability during percutaneous treatment in patients suffering from blocked arteries in the legs.

The CROSSER Catheter is a minimally-invasive endovascular device that utilizes high-frequency, mechanical vibration to facilitate passage through blockages in the peripheral and coronary arteries. It is designed as a frontline therapy to enable central lumen crossing of chronically occluded arteries thereby maximizing physicians' therapeutic options.
