FAME Data Demonstrates 30% Reduction in Composite Events When Using Routine

FFR Guidance in Multi-Vessel Disease

WASHINGTON, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Volcano Corporation (Nasdaq: VOLC) today announced the launch of the PrimeWire(TM) Pressure Guidewire, and the s5-FFR Option for its existing installed base of s5 and s5i imaging consoles in the U.S. The PrimeWire is Volcano's newest pressure guidewire, capable of measuring pressure gradients across a lesion to determine the ischemic nature of the stenosis, and can also help determine the extent to which the blockage is flow-limiting. The s5-FFR Option is now available for existing s5 and s5i consoles currently installed throughout the U.S. and Europe to enable these IVUS consoles with FFR (fractional flow reserve) technology. Volcano continues to be the only company offering an imaging console capable of high-frequency rotational IVUS, fast digital IVUS, and FFR.

FAME

The one-year follow-up of the FAME study (FFR vs. Angiography for Multivessel Evaluation) was presented yesterday at TCT and confirms the beneficial clinical and economic impact of FFR when used routinely to guide treatments of multi-vessel disease. "The FAME study is among the most important studies in today's DES therapy era. FAME demonstrates that when physicians employ FFR to guide multi-vessel PCI treatment, their patients benefit both clinically and economically. The FFR-guided interventions for multi-vessel disease are also cost effective for hospitals and payers. FAME confirms the benefits of routine FFR for the multi-vessel patient just as the earlier Deferral versus Performance of PTCA in Patients Without Documented ischemia (DEFER) study demonstrated in single-vessel d
