October 11, 2013 — AccessClosure Inc. announced an exclusive agreement with Ostial Corp. to distribute the Flash Ostial System Dual Balloon Angioplasty Catheter in the United States. The system is designed to help overcome the challenges of aorto-ostial stenting and complements the Mynx product family of vascular closure devices.
Ostial lesions are a challenging area for treatment. According to Richard Kovach, M.D., chair, interventional cardiology and director, cardiac catheterization laboratory at Deborah Heart and Lung Center, in Browns Mills, N.J., “The dual balloon design of the Flash Ostial System is an exciting treatment option for ostial disease. Flash conforms to the ostium to enable excellent stent apposition, which is important for coverage of the disease and for preserving reaccess to the treated vessel.” Kovach has been using the Flash Ostial System in his practice for the past year.
AccessClosure showcased its portfolio of devices at the Vascular Interventional Advances 2013 (VIVA) in Las Vegas.
