Volcano Gets Japan Approval for IVUS Imaging Catheter

August 3, 2007 - Volcano Corp. announced it has received approval by regulatory authorities in Japan to market the Revolution 45 MHz rotational IVUS imaging catheter and related accessories, which covers the use of the Revolution Catheter when used on Volcano's IVG IVUS system, and will be the highest frequency IVUS catheter available in key Japanese market.
Volcano, which is already shipping the Revolution catheter in the U.S. and Europe, expects to launch the Revolution catheter into Japan in the fourth quarter of this year.
"I believe that IVUS guidance improves patient outcomes when used as part of routine stenting technique and I now try to use IVUS on all patients receiving stents,” said Antonio Colombo, M.D., director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Columbus Hospital and Chief of Invasive cardiology at San Raffaele Hospital, both in Milan, Italy. “Images are very easy to interpret and provide excellent measurements of the coronary vasculature, helping to verify proper stent expansion and full stent apposition."
