Volcano Corporation Praises FAME Study Results
Date:9/23/2009

n, the reduction in MACE and assuming $675 per procedure cost savings would result in approximately 18,000 fewer MACE events per year at a total hospital cost savings of approximately $230 million or over $2 billion in the 10 years outlined for the new healthcare reform package. If you count the cost savings included in the MACE reductions, as presented at ESC 2009 ($2,066 per patient) that potential total cost impact could be more than $700 million per year, and $7 billion over 10 years.

Huennekens continued, "In the end, physicians want to do what is best for the patient. The data from FAME in support of FFR-guided PCI has clearly been strong enough to change practice, as sales of our disposable FFR wire products through the first half of 2009 have grown nearly 80 percent year over year. The extended 2-year follow-up data presented today from FAME provides further evidence of clinical benefit and hopefully continues to support changing physician guidelines as well as reimbursement practices."
