Date:3/22/2012

PLANO, Texas, March 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Argon Medical Devices, Inc. announced today the US launch of the UltraStream Chronic Hemodialysis catheter, licensed from Rex Medical, LP, designed to provide long-term vascular access to patients receiving dialysis treatments.

"UltraStream provides clinicians with an innovative tool to improve care and quality of life for their patients," commented George Leondis, President of Argon. "This unique technology broadens our dialysis platform and highlights our commitment to this growing disease state."

The UltraStream Chronic Hemodialysis catheter is the only Chronic Dialysis catheter available with innovative dual lumen arterial lines and a modified step tip design that allow for high flow rates and ease of insertion, providing the combination of clinician satisfaction and improved patient outcomes. This exclusive step tip design allows for placement, both over the wire, and through a peel-away sheath.  The seamless transition from the dilator to the step tip facilitates easier catheter exchanges.

UltraStream catheters are provided in a variety of set configurations to meet physician preferences.

There are currently over 571,000 patients diagnosed and treated for End-Stage Renal Disease, with over 116,000 newly diagnosed patients in 2009.*  This 3.5% increase in ESRD is the highest since 2000.
