COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Spectranetics Corporation (Nasdaq: SPNC) today announced it has received reimbursement approval from the competent governmental authority in Belgium for its lead removal and peripheral atherectomy product line, effective October 1, 2007.

The reimbursement for the lead removal indication -- an embedded, infected lead or an electronic malfunction of a pacemaker or defibrillator electrode -- applies to hospitals in Belgium that meet the national cardiac pathology requirements and standards. The reimbursement for the peripheral indication applies to all centers in Belgium equipped with Spectranetics' technology for patients that suffer from critical limb ischemia with non-healing ulcers or rest pain due to infrapopliteal disease.

Shar Matin, Managing Director of Spectranetics International, B.V. commented, "We are very pleased that the Belgian authority granted reimbursement approval for our laser-based therapies.
