New Balloon Catheter Available Worldwide for Carotid and Renal Angioplasty

Today at the 61st Annual Meeting of the Society for Vascular Surgery, Cordis Endovascular, division of Cordis Corporation, announced the worldwide launch of the Cordis AVIATOR (TM) Plus Balloon Dilatation Catheter for use in angioplasty procedures for patients with carotid and or renal artery blockages. AVIATOR(TM) Plus combines a unique high-pressure expansion and low profile .014 inch rapid exchange (RX) or single operator system that facilitates procedural speed and efficiency by enabling fast inflation and deflation times. Fast inflation and deflation time during carotid or renal intervention procedures helps to limit the period of distal ischemia, and the low profile may help reduce the risk of plaque disruption and embolization when crossing the lesion.

Professor Horst Sievert, Cardiovascular Center Frankfurt, Sankt Katharinen, performed the first carotid live case with AVIATOR(TM) Plus at the recent EuroPCR 2007 Congress held in Barcelona, Spain. Following the procedure, Professor Sievert said, "I was extremely happy about the overall performance of this new carotid indicated balloon. The enhanced pushability and lower profile enabled rapid and efficient treatment of the lesion."

The AVIATOR(TM) Plus draws on the innovative delivery technology of the AVIATOR(TM) Catheter, first launched by Cordis Endovascular in the United States in 2002. As with other Cordis Endovascular percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) catheters, the AVIATOR(TM) Plus gets its strength from Cordis' market leading DURALYN(R) Balloon Material which allows for precise and consistent inflation diameters.

"The AVIATOR(TM) Plus is one of only two carotid indicated PTA balloon dilatation catheters available and further supports Cordis Endovascular's continued commitment to providing leading technology for the treatment of carotid and renal artery disease," said Dennis Donohoe, M.D., Vice President, Worldwide Clinical and Medical Affairs, Cordis Co rporation.

AVIATOR(TM) Plus features include a sleek (<.90mm) manicured tip, 3.3 french shaft, and modified DURALYN(R) Balloon Material on a 4 french system. It is available in 4 - 7mm diameters and 1.5 - 4cm lengths on 142cm shafts.
