Volcano Corp. Launches PrimeWirePressure Guide Wires

October 16, 2008 - At TCT 2008, Volcano Corp. launched its new PrimeWire Pressure Guide Wire, and the s5-FFR Option for its existing installed base of s5 and s5i imaging consoles in the U.S.

The PrimeWire is reportedly capable of measuring pressure gradients across a lesion to determine the ischemic nature of the stenosis, and can also help determine the extent to which the blockage is flow limiting. The s5-FFR Option is now available for existing s5 and s5i consoles currently installed throughout the U.S. and Europe to enable these IVUS consoles with FFR (fractional flow reserve) technology.
