ACIST Medical Systems, Inc. Key Developments

ACIST Medical Systems, Inc. Launches HDi High-Definition IVUS

ACIST Medical Systems, Inc. showcased the first-ever HDi(TM) High-Definition Intravascular Ultrasound System in two live cases at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics meeting in Washington, D.C. The cases were presented from Medstar Washington Hospital Center (Washington, D.C.) and New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center (New York, NY). The HDi features an intuitive touch screen with 60MHz image quality, high-speed pullback, a deliverable Kodama(R) HD-IVUS catheter and the ACIST HDi console. HD-IVUS is a reinvention of intravascular imaging. The ACIST Medical Systems portfolio has recently expanded beyond the CVi contrast delivery system, to include Rapid Exchange FFR (RXi) and High-Definition IVUS (HDi) technologies. Through these products, ACIST is demonstrating its commitment to bringing unique and innovative technologies that simplify cardiovascular procedures and empower clinicians to treat patients with superior care. The ACIST HDi IVUS system is easier to use and offers detailed insight that physicians can use to optimize treatment choice for their patients. The HDi provides improved image quality over traditional IVUS systems. Additionally, the simple, intuitive touch-screen display features 60MHz image quality, which enables easier identification and interpretation of intravascular structures and disease. The Kodama HD-IVUS catheter is deliverable and offers high-speed pullback that is 20 times faster than currently available IVUS systems--lowering the risk of catheter-induced ischemia by reducing pullback time from minutes to seconds.

ACIST Medical Systems, Inc. Enters Co-Promotion Agreement with Medtronic Inc.to Commercialize Next Generation FFR and IVUS Technologies in U.S

ACIST Medical Systems, Inc. announced that it has entered into a strategic agreement with Medtronic, Inc. to co-promote the Rapid Exchange FFR (RXi) and High Definition IVUS (HDi) technologies in the United States. Under this agreement, ACIST and Medtronic will work collaboratively to introduce these groundbreaking products into cardiac catheterization laboratories across the US. FFR (Fractional Flow Reserve) has quickly become the standard that interventional cardiologists use to determine which patients can most benefit from stenting. IVUS (Intravascular Ultrasound) is an advanced diagnostic modality that provides greater insight into arterial disease than standard angiography alone. The ACIST Rapid FFR (RXi) and High Definition IVUS (HDi) systems are quicker, easier to use and offer detailed insight that physicians can use to optimize treatment choice for their patients. ACIST’s new Rapid FFR system, which utilizes the ultra-thin ACIST Navvus™ Rapid Exchange MicroCatheter and RXi console, was introduced earlier this year in the United States and Europe. The Navvus MicroCatheter can be used over a standard 0.014 inch guidewire, and the RXi system facilitates rapid FFR assessments before, during and post-intervention. This unique technology is the first of its kind, providing the reassurance of accurate and reliable FFR measurements and the advantages of Rapid Exchange technology.

ACIST Medical Systems, Inc. Launches RXi(TM) Rapid Exchange FFR System

ACIST Medical Systems, Inc. announced at the American College of Cardiology's 63rd Annual Scientific Session in Washington, D.C., the global introduction of the new ACIST|RXi™ Rapid Exchange FFR System. This device features new technology designed to provide physicians with a fast and easy way to perform Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) procedures. The new Rapid FFR system utilizes the ultra-thin ACIST Navvus™ Rapid Exchange MicroCatheter and RXi console. The Navvus MicroCatheter can be used over a standard 0.014 inch guidewire, providing the physician maximum control while maintaining wire position throughout the coronary procedure. The RXi system also facilitates rapid FFR assessments before, during and post-intervention, to quickly assess blockages that could require Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI). This unique technology provides the reassurance of accurate and reliable FFR measurements and the advantages of Rapid Exchange technology. In addition to being a Rapid Exchange catheter, the ACIST Rapid FFR system utilizes fiber-optic technology, resulting in greater signal stability and less potential for signal drift. The ultra-thin Navvus MicroCatheter features simple plug and play by not requiring calibration therefore saving time and increasing ease of use versus older FFR wire-base systems.
