Date:7/10/2008

Following FDA clearance and CE approval, revolutionary CiTop™ product-line is now available in Israel. Ovalum Ltd., a privately held Israeli medical device company, has announced today the clearance to market of its unique CiTop™ product-line in Israel.

Rehovot, Israel (PRWEB) July 10, 2008 -- Ovalum Ltd., a privately held Israeli medical device company, has announced today the clearance to market of its unique CiTop™ product-line in Israel. These products are indicated for traversing arterial obstructions, including chronic total occlusions, to allow blood flow through the vasculature.

Dr. Alexander Belenky, Head of Interventional Radiology Unit at Rabin Medical Center and chief Radiologist at Assuta Tel-Aviv Medical Center says: "This unique technology greatly assists in rescuing limbs which could not be treated by any other means. Opening an occluded artery is a must for saving the limb from amputation. The CiTop(tm) Guidewire System is crossing these occlusions in tremendous ease even in the most complicated cases".

According to Barry T. Katzen, MD, FACR, FACC, a member of Ovalum Ltd. Advisory Board and medical director of Baptist Cardiac and Vascular Institute in Miami, "Saving limbs is dependent on successful recanalization of total occlusions, frequently in long segments. This device is a simple and effective method in the hands of the physician to improve results in the treatment of total occlusions".

Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO) is one of the main challenges that Interventional Cardiologists and Radiologists are facing today. Ovalum's CTO solution, the CiTop™ Guidewire technology enables the minimally invasive intervention specialists to cross over the arterial blockage in a controllable and reproducible way. The system is made of a highly flexible guidewire body and a distal tip consisting of a working element with dilating capabilities to facilitate wire cross-over. The CiTop™ product-line also includes the 0.014" CoBra™ CTO Guidewire and the TraVerse™ Micro-catheter.
