Surefire Medical's Anti-Reflux Infusion System May Eliminate Coiling, Lower Cost Of Embolization Procedures
Date:9/16/2013

WESTMINSTER, Colo., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Surefire Medical, Inc., the developer of a brand new class of infusion systems designed to maximize direct-to-tumor drug delivery without reflux, today announced that presentations at the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society (CIRSE) meeting make the economic case for use of the new Surefire Infusion System (SIS).   Research presented today in Barcelona found that:

  • The SIS catheter group had a significant reduction in procedure time, fluoroscopy time, and contrast dose in pre-treatment angiograms
  • Without use of coils, no non-target embolization occurred in the SIS group during treatment
  • Using the SIS catheter to protect non-target organs costs significantly less than coil embolization in direct-to-tumor cancer treatment

"The Surefire Infusion System is a viable first-line alternative to traditional retrievable coil embolization for protecting non-target organs and may lead to decreased overall costs, procedure time, fluoroscopy time, and contrast exposure when treating cancer patients with radioembolization," said principal investigator Steven Kikolski, MD of the University of California San Diego (UCSD).

Additional SIS-focused presentations at CIRSE

Five additional presentations and posters at CIRSE focusing on the Surefire Infusion System

  • Confirm the safety of performing chemoembolization and radioembolization procedures without coiling
  • Present a pilot study of a single procedure for mapping and radioembolization
  • Detail the new ability to measure blood pressure changes that can signal the endpoint of embolization
  • Discuss the feasi
