InfraReDx Announces Publication of a Case Report in Circulation Highlighting Novel Clinical Finding with LipiScan™ Coronary Imaging System
Date:12/7/2010

BURLINGTON, Mass., Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- InfraReDx, Inc., a medical device company developing intelligent cardiovascular diagnostic imaging technologies, today announced the publication of a case report in Circulation describing the association of stent thrombosis with lipid core plaque as detected by its LipiScan™ Coronary Imaging System. The LipiScan is the first and only FDA-approved system to provide a Chemogram™ (map of lipid core plaque) within the imaged vessel via near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. The authors note that the case represents the first demonstration of acute stent thrombosis associated with disrupted lipid core plaque (LCP) as detected by NIR imaging with the LipiScan system.

The paper titled "Residual Thrombogenic Substrate After Rupture of a Lipid Rich Plaque – Possible Mechanism of Acute Stent Thrombosis? A Near-Infrared Spectroscopy Study" was published in Circulation (2010;122:2349-2350) under authors Sakhuja R., Suh W., Jaffer F. and Jang I.

"While stenting is an excellent means to treat flow restrictions caused by coronary plaques, it is in some cases complicated by thrombosis which may cause serious consequences," said James E. Muller, M.D., founder and chief executive officer of InfraReDx. "This report by Sakhuja et al. describes the occurrence of thrombosis in a stent that ends in a lipid core plaque, a structure that contains substances known to be thrombogenic. This adds to the accumulating evidence that many complications of stenting – peri-stenting infarction, stent thrombosis and restenosis – are due not to features of the stent or stenting technique, but to the presence of a lipid core plaque at the stented site. We are pleased to make available the LipiScan IVUS Coronary Imaging System, which provides an easy and accurate method to detect lipid core plaque and thereby adds important information to the decision-makin
