Today's case indicates Hotspur's entry into the PAD market, a rapidly growing market that affects one in five Americans 65 and older.  PAD-related treatments resulted in $21 billion in annual spending in the United States alone.  Hotspur's GPSCath device assists both patients suffering from PAD and physicians performing these procedures by combining multiple functions into a single device.  This multi-functionality can potentially enable cases to be completed more quickly by reducing the need for catheter exchanges, subsequently reducing patient's contrast and radiation exposure.

The GPSCath Balloon Dilatation Catheter is one of three Hotspur devices that have received US Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance. The other commercially available products are the IQCath™ device, which allows the doctor to perform angioplasty, embolectomy, and fluid injection with the same catheter while maintaining guidewire position.  Hotspur has also received FDA 510(k) clearance on its Keeper™ Embolectomy Catheter, which is a specialty two-in-one device that integrates an embolectomy balloon with the ability to inject physician-specified fluids while maintaining guidewire position.
