Rehovot , Israel (PRWEB) July 11, 2008 -- Following First-in-Man study success, Ovalum Ltd. launches a multicenter study using the CiTop™ technology in the coronary arteries.

Ovalum Ltd., a privately held Israeli medical device company, has announced today successful experiences using CiTop™ ExPander™ Guidewire in traversing chronic total occlusions in the coronary arteries.

Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO) is one of the main challenges that Interventional Cardiologists face today. Attempts in opening coronary CTOs by using mechanical wires are ranging from 26% to 85% and are operator dependent. In order to increase success rate and make it less operator-dependent, the CiTop™ ExPander™ Guidewire was designed. The CiTop™ ExPander™ Guidewire is a 0.014" Guidewire which combines conventional guidewire navigational properties with a tip dilation feature to aid in releasing a wedged guidewire and allow its advancement through difficult occlusions.

The company has completed successfully its First-in-Man study in the use of the CiTop™ ExPander™ Guidewire in the coronary arteries. Dr. Keyur H. Parikh, The Heart Care Clinic/Care Cardiovascular Consultants (Ahmedabad, India), Principle Investigator of the study has said: "Ovalum with its CiTop™ wire has discovered an approach to a safe and sure way to cross CTOs. Chronic Total Occlusions is one of the last frontiers of the Cardiologists, the CiTop™ wire has shown me an approach towards that last frontier.... "
