Avinger, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, VA, Lumivascular technology, FSS Contract Award

September 27, 2016 — Avinger Inc. recently announced the company has received an FSS Contract Award from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The award establishes terms under which VA hospitals across the country may acquire Avinger’s Lumivascular portfolio of optical coherence tomography (OCT) image-guided catheters for their veterans hospitals.

VA operates the nation's largest integrated healthcare system, with more than 1,700 hospitals, clinics, community living centers, domiciliaries, readjustment counseling centers and other facilities.

Avinger’s current Lumivascular products include the Lightbox OCT imaging console, the Ocelot family of catheters — which are designed to penetrate total arterial blockages, known as chronic total occlusions (CTOs) — and Pantheris, the first-ever image-guided atherectomy device, designed to precisely remove arterial plaque in peripheral artery disease (PAD) patients.
