IN.PACT AV Drug-Coated Balloon Is First and Only to Show Superior and Sustained Results Through Two Years Compared to PTA in Treating Arteriovenous Fistulae Lesions

The data, which were presented virtually as a podium first at the 2021 Charing Cross Symposium, demonstrated that the IN.PACT™ AV drug-coated balloon (DCB) is the first and only DCB to show sustained and superior effectiveness through two years compared to standard percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients with de novo or non-stented restenotic native arteriovenous fistulae (AVF) in the upper extremity.

ControlRad Select technology utilizes proprietary semi-transparent filters, a user-interface tablet, and image processing algorithms, which are retrofitted onto customers’ existing Siemens Artis zee interventional imaging systems.

In preparation for the commercialization efforts, ControlRad has entered into an exclusive agreement with Boston Scientific Corporation to sell the ControlRad Select technology.

“With the FDA clearance and the reach of the global medical device sales team, every cath, EP, and IR lab in the country that has a Siemens Artis zee will now have the opportunity to reduce their radiation dose by 85%1 without compromising image quality,” stated Guillaume Bailliard, CEO of ControlRad.

“The health risks to the medical staff due to lifetime radiation exposure in cath labs have been well documented, including increased incidence of cataracts, atherosclerosis and even left-brain tumors,” stated Simon Dixon, MD, Chief of Cardiology at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, Michigan. “We recently completed a clinical trial designed to evaluate how this novel technology might reduce radiation exposure in the cath lab. I have long been passionate about finding innovative ways to improve safety for my colleagues in the lab while they are performing lifesaving procedures for our patients.”
