Results From Landmark PROSPECT Trial Demonstrate the Ability of Volcano's VH(R) IVUS Imaging to Identify Plaques Most Likely to Cause Heart Attacks
Date:9/24/2009

ase is the same. We cannot predict a patient's risk of having future cardiac events by looking at a 2-D, black-and-white image of the arterial lumen. Available tools like IVUS and VH(R) IVUS that look at the quantity, location and type of disease and not just the narrowing of the vessel improve our ability to determine the likelihood of a particular lesion type to cause an event. PROSPECT has shown the ability to use VH and grayscale IVUS to classify different lesion types per the PROSPECT definitions. This trial highlights not only the potential of Volcano's VH(R) IVUS, but just as important, the limitations of using angiography alone."

VH(R) IVUS uses advanced spectral analysis of the ultrasound signal to classify atherosclerotic disease into different plaque components. By using these four plaque components, the PROSPECT investigators grouped the baseline lesions into five distinct lesion types; Fibrotic, Fibro-Calcific, Pathological Intimal Thickening, Thick-Cap Fibroatheroma and Thin-Cap Fibroatheroma, in order of hypothesized risk.

PROSPECT Results

The PROSPECT event data presented today demonstrates that the measurements made using grayscale and VH(R) IVUS did have a statistically significant impact in determining the likelihood of a particular lesion type to cause an event. The highest risk PROSPECT plaque type being VH Thin Cap Fibroatheromas with a minimum lumen area of less than or equal to 4mm(2) and a plaque burden greater than or equal to 70%. All three of these important parameters (each an independent predictor) when combined showed that the particular lesion imaged at baseline had a 17.2% chance of causing an event within three years. It is important to note that current practice of using angiography alone cannot measure plaque burden or the presence of VH-TCFAs, which were the two most significant predictors of lesion risk in the study. These measures can only be collected using Volcano's prop
