Volcano Corporation Announces Launch of PrimeWire(TM) Pressure Guidewire and s5-FFR Option for Existing Fleet of s5 IVUS Consoles
Date:10/15/2008

d to announce the launch of the new PrimeWire Pressure Guidewire, which is compatible with Volcano's s5 family of integrated imaging consoles. Volcano's PrimeWire was showcased yesterday at TCT in two live case demonstrations performed at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York and at Riverside Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio. "The launch of the PrimeWire underlines Volcano's commitment to this very important Functional Measurement (FM) market and, in light of yesterday's important presentation of the FAME study, we look forward to working with our customers to bring the PrimeWire and our state-of-the-art FFR technology to the benefit of patients," said Scott Huennekens, Volcano's President and Chief Executive Officer.

Volcano's PrimeWire measures intracoronary pressure to derive an FFR index. FFR expresses maximum achievable blood flow in a coronary artery with the presence of an abnormal stenosis as a fraction of maximum blood flow achievable in the absence of a stenosis. FFR is 100% specific in identifying lesions actually restricting blood flow enough to cause ischemia.

Hospitals with Volcano's s5 and s5i imaging consoles in the U.S. and Europe can now acquire the FFR functionality to support the PrimeWire and add this important tool to their existing IVUS system and workflow.

Joe Burnett, Associate Vice President, marketing commented, "Earlier- generation consoles included only one of the three technologies now available on the s5. If a hospital wanted to equip a new lab with all three technologies, they would have to acquire three separate consoles, each with a different measurement modality, training requirements and data storage protocols. The Volcano s5 can now accommodate the three primary intravascular diagnostic tools in regular use by cardiologists today (high frequency rotational IVUS, fast and simple digital IVUS, and pressure-based FFR guidewires) on a single platform, making modern day imaging consoles more flexible th
