Vascular Therapies

Pioneering Technology

 

We are proud of our track record and our continued innovation in the implementation of next-generation medical technologies, that make a difference to patients’ lives around the world. Together with our partner manufacturers, we offer interventional devices and solutions for patients living with Coronary Artery Disease.

 

Complementing our established cardiovascular portfolio, our endovascular devices offer more solutions for patients whose lives we touch.

Cardiovascular Products

In the cardiovascular arena, we are focused on the development, manufacture, and commercialization of drug-eluting stents, drug-coated stents, and bare metal stents as well as angioplasty catheters for the treatment of coronary artery disease.

BioFreedom

 

BioFreedom is a polymer- and carrier-free Drug Coated Stent with BA9™ (DCS). The combination of a selectively micro-structured abluminal surface (SMS) and Biolimus A9™ make BioFreedom a unique stent. At least 20% of PCI patients are High Bleeding Risk (HBR) requiring an individualized approach, BioFreedom provides a more appropriate treatment strategy.

Biomatrix Alpha

 

BioMatrix Alpha™ presents the best in class stent platform design with unique pro-healing coating from the pioneer in abluminal biodegradable technology. It combines the proven safety of a DES with an abluminal biodegradable polymer, the proven efficacy of BA9™ and an innovative cobalt-chromium stent platform design.

Biomatrix Neoflex

 

When it comes to biodegradable polymer technology, Biosensors has developed the highest level of expertise and delivered the best results in terms of safety and efficacy. BioMatrix NeoFlex is a stainless steel DES with an enhanced stent delivery system brings exceptional performance in complex lesions and challenging anatomies. It has the highest lipophilicity of the common limus drugs and minimizes systemic exposure and reduces the drug circulating in the bloodstream.

Endovascular Products

BioPath14

 

BioPath™ 014 is a drug-eluting balloon dilatation catheter designed for percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and has been optimized for the treatment of patients with peripheral arterial disease. BioPath™ 014 is intended for infrapopliteal interventions below the knee. This paclitaxel-eluting balloon feature a proprietary shellac coating technology which consistently delivers paclitaxel, an anti-restenotic drug during very brief inflation times, while also minimizing washout of the drug during delivery and placement of the drug-eluting balloon.

BioPath35

 

BioPath™ 035 is a drug-eluting balloon dilatation catheter designed for percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and has been optimized for the treatment of patients with peripheral arterial disease. BioPath™ 035 is intended for peripheral interventions above the knee. This paclitaxel-eleluting balloon feature a proprietary shellac coating technology which consistently delivers paclitaxel, an anti-restenotic drug during very brief inflation times, while also minimizing washout of the drug during delivery and placement of the drug-eluting balloon.

Peripheral Interventions

Believing in better, simpler treatments

 

There are common themes across every medical specialty we support: patients want to get better and physicians want simpler, more effective options. That is why we work hard to introduce our minimally invasive medical devices and improve the way they are delivered to hospitals and physicians. We have the freedom to work through a problem for as long as it takes to find the simplest solution.

Zilver® PTX® Drug-Eluting Peripheral Stents

 

Indicated for improving luminal diameter for the treatment of de novo or restenotic symptomatic lesions in native vascular disease of the above-the-knee femoropopliteal arteries having reference vessel diameter from 4 mm to 7 mm and total lesion lengths up to 300 mm per patient.

Zilver Flex® 35 Vascular Stents

 

The Zilver® vascular stent has been clinically proven to maintain 90% patency in the iliacs at two years. The clinical results prove that patients experienced significant and sustained improvement in ABI and walking scores at two years. Flexibility and radial force are balanced to achieve excellent conformability and fracture resistance.

Formula® 535 Vascular Balloon-Expandable Stent

 

Formula® stents are engineered for precision: precise placement, precise treatment, and precise conformability. Balloon lengths are customized to reduce the amount of healthy tissue that is dilatated during treatment.  Formula stents do not shorten, and their ends align with the balloon markers and the stents have additional crowns, which give the stents a more circular shape and improve the scaffolding.

Flexor® Check-Flo® and Performer® Check-Flo®

 

The product is used to introduce balloon, closed- and nontapered-end catheters, or other diagnostic and interventional devices.

A product that serves the following clinical divisions: Aortic Intervention, Peripheral Intervention, Critical Care. There are now four Micropucture Access Sets with trays. All of these sets include a palladium-tipped, nitinol wire guide and an EchoTip® needle. The sets, in 4 Fr and 5 Fr and standard and stiffened cannulas, also feature Transitionless-Tip™ coaxial catheter pair technology.

Amplatz Stiff/Extra-Stiff/Ultra-Stiff Wire Guides
