GrantAdler Shipping Novel Implantable Vascular Access Port
Date:9/21/2007

NAPERVILLE, Ill., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Designed by a surgeon, the revolutionary new GrantAdler(R) Rhapsody(TM) vascular access system simplifies and speeds vascular access port implantation. The Rhapsody system addresses four key problems with traditional ports:

1) Time-consuming catheter sizing and adjustment

2) Catheter kinking, pinch-off, and breakage

3) Assembly problems with the small clips and locks used with other port

systems

4) Catheter detachment from the port body

"When clinicians first see Rhapsody, they immediately recognize the innovative ease of use features and time saving advantages engineered into this novel access port system," said Mike Loiterman, GrantAdler's CEO. "They also see the significant clinical benefits of its fracture resistant catheter. The Rhapsody system also incorporates a dramatically improved catheter-to-port coupling system, which tests have shown to be 30% stronger than competitive systems. The clear benefits of these features have led to rapid market acceptance that meet the company's sales growth targets."

A number of clinician-friendly features make Rhapsody the easiest vascular access port to implant. During the procedure, the physician simply selects the short, medium, or long pre-cut catheter based on the patient's anatomy and an actual measurement shown on a special guide wire that is included in the system's tray.

A reinforcing coil embedded in the wall of GrantAdler's unique catheter reduces the chance for kinking, pinch-off, and fracture, while maintaining great flexibility. This metal reinforcement allows the very robust thin-wall catheter to have both an inside diameter (ID) of 2 mm (the largest in the industry) and a very small 7.5 Fr (2.475 mm) outside diameter (OD). The large ID allows unrestricted high flow, and the small OD simplifies placement. These features accommodate the needs of both implanting and referring physicians. The reinforced thin-wall catheter also eliminates the cost of stocking multiple lumen diameters.

Rhapsody's catheter-to-port coupling eliminates the need to orient, install, and assemble separate catheter locking components. The clinician achieves a secure connection in one step by simply pushing the easy to grip QuickLock(TM) catheter coupling over the port stem.

The Rhapsody vascular access port system is competitively priced. It is offered in a two-part system. The port and all accessories, including the proprietary measurement guide wire, are included in a standard double tray. The pre-cut one-piece catheter assemblies are packaged in sterile peel-apart packages that can be ordered separately to minimize inventory costs. The Rhapsody system is sold in the US through registered and trained GrantAdler distributors. To learn more about Rhapsody, please visit http://www.grantadler.com.
