Volcano Announces Installed Base Growth Milestone
Date:12/15/2009

he only multi-modality system capable of doing digital IVUS, high frequency rotational IVUS, VH® IVUS tissue characterization, ChromaFlo and FFR all on the same console today, and a path for additional modalities like OCT, Spectroscopy, Image Guided Therapy Balloons, and Forward Looking IVUS in the future. When hospitals purchase equipment today, they want to be sure it is capable of evolving with the needs of their physicians, and many of them see that vision in Volcano's pipeline."

Precision guidance products such as FFR and IVUS have experienced an impressive increase in adoption over the past year. Despite a minor increase in overall PCI procedure volume in the U.S., Volcano IVUS catheter unit sales are up 19% and Volcano FFR wires are up 73% year-to-date as compared to the same period a year ago. These tools are being increasingly relied upon by physicians who continue to look for ways to improve on current drug-eluting stent (DES) outcomes, especially in more complex lesions and in patients with multi-vessel disease.

Joe Burnett, Vice President of Marketing at Volcano commented, "FFR is a particular focus for Volcano, and the momentum has continued after the publication of new updates to the PCI guidelines from the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association earlier this week. These two prestigious societies 'upgraded' the level of evidence in support of FFR from level B to level A largely based on the strong FAME study data. We look to become a leader in the FFR market the same way we have in IVUS, by having the best portfolio of FFR wires and using accelerated installed base placements to fuel market share growth. It took us over fifteen years to place 800 earlier generation FFR systems worldwide. In the last 12 months, we have enabled FFR on over 1200 s5 and s5i systems through either upgrades or new placements, more than doubling the installed base of FFR capable systems. This is the power of our platfor
