Surefire Medical Launches Next Generation Infusion System ST-LT and Specialty Catheters at SIR - Maximizing Targeted Delivery of Embolics Without Reflux
Date:4/13/2013

New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) April 13, 2013

Surefire Medical, Inc., the developer of a new class of infusion systems designed to maximize targeted delivery of embolization agents without reflux, today announced the launch of the company’s next-generation Surefire Infusion System and Specialty Catheters at the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) 38th Annual Meeting, held in New Orleans April 13-18. The new ST and LT microcatheters can accommodate smaller vessels and selective procedures in direct-to-tumor cancer treatment.

Now available in the U.S., Europe, Canada and New Zealand, the company’s new Surefire Infusion System--ST and Surefire Infusion System--LT microcatheters for the interventional radiology and interventional oncology markets are distinguished by their expandable tip. When deployed, the tip expands dynamically to the walls of the artery, preventing any damage caused by backflow into healthy, non-target vessels and tissues.

“The new Surefire Infusion System makes some treatment dilemmas far less problematic, and thus may improve patient safety. However, the far more exciting aspect of the new system is the potential for improving the efficacy of therapy, said Fred Moeslein, M.D., Interim Director, Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology, University of Maryland School of Medicine.

“Currently, Drug-Eluting Bead Chemoembolization (DEB-TACE) is performed routinely across this country and around the globe using end-hole catheters. Often, especially in the setting of hypovascular tumors or heavily pretreated tumors, stasis is reached early, thus limiting drug delivery. The Surefire system allows us to deliver more drug to the tumor, even in the setting of stasis without risk of reflux or non-target embolization. Therefore the new system gives us the capability to control drug delivery far better than with a standard end-hole catheter.”
