Hotspur Technology's Novel 3-in-1 Angioplasty Balloon Successfully Achieves First Commercial Deployment
Date:12/23/2010

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 23, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Hotspur Technologies, Inc. announced today that Guy Mayeda, MD, interventional cardiologist at Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles, California, performed the first commercial deployment of the company's IQCath™ Balloon Dilatation Catheter. This new device enables, for the first time, performance of three complex vascular procedures with one single catheter, potentially reducing procedure time and expense for both patients and medical professionals.

"The IQCath brings much needed efficiency and innovation to dialysis graft revascularization procedures. The ability to perform balloon angioplasty, embolectomy, local drug delivery, and angiography with a single device should shorten procedure times, as well as reduce radiation exposure to both the operator and patients," said Dr. Mayeda.

The IQCath is a three-in-one device that allows physicians to perform high-pressure angioplasty, inject fluids such as contrast, and perform embolectomy while maintaining guidewire position. During this procedure, Dr. Mayeda brought the 5mm balloon to its RBP of 16 atmospheres ten times and performed five intermittent contrast injections while utilizing the same catheter. In the past, in these types of medical procedures, physicians typically have had to use multiple catheters to open the blood vessels, which can be time-consuming and expensive. Hotspur's products enable insertion of only one catheter for the entire procedure.

The IQCath is one of Hotspur's first three devices that have received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. These three new Hotspur devices are focused on solving some of the key challenges associated with restoring blood flow to blocked or low flow dialysis access grafts and fistulaes and peripheral vessels.

"We have heard from physicians that they need devices that are purpose-designed for the many peripheral access procedures they perform regularl
