ining this platform going forward to enhance our ability to safely and efficiently cross and stent these difficult lesions."

Chronic Total Occlusions are described by thought leaders as the "last frontier" of interventional cardiology. It is estimated that 30-50% of people diagnosed with coronary artery disease have at least one CTO, yet they are rarely treated due to the difficult nature of the condition. By most definitions, CTOs are complete blockages of a vessel that have been present for at least one month and are extremely difficult to cross with conventional guidewire techniques. Often patients are not treated at all or are referred for bypass surgeries, yet if minimally invasive interventional treatment is possible, patient outcomes and one-year survival rates can be significantly improved.

"We are very pleased to add this patent to our CTO intellectual property portfolio," commented Joseph W. Kaufmann, President and CEO of Kensey Nash Corporation. "By building upon the foundation of our current technology, we expect to broaden the Safe-Cross System's capabilities as we develop additional tools to further improve clinical outcomes in both coronary and peripheral CTO procedures," he concluded.
