Peripheral Orbital Atherectomy System With GlideAssist® Introduced in Europe

Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. announced today that the first patient in Europe has been treated with its Stealth 360®Peripheral Orbital Atherectomy System (OAS) 1.25mm Micro Crown with GlideAssist® (1.25 Micro Crown).

The 1.25 Micro Crown is designed with flexibility for tortuous vessels and tight bends below the knee. The GlideAssist feature enables the crown to spin at a slow speed of 5K rpm, facilitating tracking and smoother movement to access diffuse, calcified lesions below the knee.

Dr. Michael Lichtenberg, Chief Physician, Clinic for Angiology, Hochsauerland Hospital, Arnsberg, Germany, successfully treated the first peripheral patient with the 1.25 Micro Crown.

Dr. Lichtenberg said, “CSI’s new Stealth OAS 1.25 Micro Crown with GlideAssist is a welcome addition to my toolbox for treating challenging critical limb ischemia, or CLI, cases. In particular, the device’s dual mechanism of action of differential sanding and pulsatile forces will be instrumental in the treatment of the challenging calcified lesions I often see in lesions below the knee.”

Scott Ward, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of CSI, said, “With our distribution partner, OrbusNeich®, we are excited to introduce the 1.25 Micro Crown in Germany. One million German patients suffer from CLI, a severe condition that can result in severe pain, tissue damage and loss of limbs. The 1.25 Micro Crown provides physicians with a minimally invasive therapy to access and effectively treat this condition by modifying calcified lesions below the knee and restoring blood flow to the foot.”
