Physicians Cite Positive First Clinical Experience with Volcano's Eagle Eye® Platinum Digital IVUS Catheter
Date:5/20/2010

spital, stated, "Physicians need devices that quickly get to where they are needed without requiring excess manipulation or extra dilations. In my experience, the Eagle Eye® Platinum catheter clearly represents a dramatic generational improvement in terms of deliverability and trackability in complex vascular anatomy. Ultimately, the enhancements of this catheter could increase usage of IVUS among physicians, allowing for more precision in the treatment of cardiovascular disease."

"There are two trends in interventional cardiology for which the Eagle Eye® Platinum is especially well-suited," said Joe Burnett, Executive Vice President of Marketing at Volcano. "First, more and more procedures are performed using the radial approach, where physicians access the vasculature through the smaller arteries in the arm versus the larger femoral artery in the leg. In these cases, smaller guide catheters are commonly used and there is often less room near the arm for an external pullback device. The Eagle Eye® Platinum is the only FDA cleared IVUS catheter that is compatible with smaller five French (5F) guides. Plus, the new radiopaque markers for length estimation decrease the reliance on pullback devices, making this catheter better suited for the radial technique."

"The second trend is a focus on using less contrast and delivering less radiation to patients and staff during PCI procedures," added Burnett. "Again, these convenient radiopaque markers can assist physicians in lesion and stent length estimation by reducing the limitations of two-dimensional angiography, which could lead to the use of less contrast and fewer x-ray pictures from multiple angles."

"The last couple of years have been challenging for medical device makers to invest and deliver new, innovative products to the cardiac cath lab," continued Sheehan. "We are thrill
