Largest Prospective Study Shows IVUS-Guided Stent Placement Improves Patient Outcomes with Current Generation of Stents
Date:11/14/2012

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Volcano Corporation (Nasdaq: VOLC), a leading developer and manufacturer of precision guided therapy tools designed to enhance the diagnosis and treatment of coronary and peripheral vascular disease, today announced that results from the largest study of its kind show that stent procedures guided by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) resulted in better patient outcomes and fewer complications at 30 days and 12 months compared to procedures without IVUS, and were safe.

Enrolling 3,349 patients, the IVUS sub-study is part of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation's (CRF) ADAPT-DES study (Assessment of Dual AntiPlatelet Therapy with Drug-Eluting Stents), a prospective, multi-center registry of 8,583 patients with coronary artery disease undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stents (DES). Results of the ADAPT-DES IVUS sub-study were presented at the 24th Annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific symposium sponsored by CRF.

"The ADAPT-DES IVUS sub-study provides the strongest evidence to date that use of IVUS to guide optimizing placement improves patient outcomes," said Gregg W. Stone, M.D., FACC, FSCAI, Professor of Medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and Director of Cardiovascular Research and Education at the Center for Interventional Vascular Therapy at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center. "Previously, the additive value of IVUS as an independent predictor of stent thrombosis, myocardial infarction (MI) and death had not been assessed in a large-scale, prospective, multi-center registry which had sufficient power to address these issues."

Bernhard Witzenbichler, M.D., Head of Interventional Cardiology at Charite University of Medicine Berlin in Berlin, Germany stated, "In the study, we found that IVUS guidan
