Scripps Prebys Cardiovascular Institute for Scripps Health Uses ACIST HDi™ High-Definition Intravascular Ultrasound System
Sep 17 15
Scripps Prebys Cardiovascular Institute for Scripps Health performed the first patient case using the ACIST HDi™ High-Definition Intravascular Ultrasound System. HDi offers detailed insight that interventional cardiologists can use to optimize treatment choice for their patients. During the case fine plaque details were visualized in a highly stenosis vessel, while continuously visualizing the entire vessel. This helped optimal stent sizing and HDi aided in ensuring proper stent expansion. Reinventing IVUS in HD: With HDi, ACIST has developed first high-definition IVUS system. It reinvents IVUS technology with improved image quality, a touch panel interface, a highly deliverable high-definition catheter, and superfast pullback speed. HDi's improved image quality is due to a combination of its proprietary 60 MHz transducer and powerful signal processing, which deliver imaging at high axial resolution (<40 µm versus the 100 µm of other IVUS systems) and with minimized image noise, without the need for vessel clearing. HDi also offers a high depth of penetration to allow assessment of full plaque burden and the complete left main artery. The complete HDi imaging system is integrated into one single 19 inch touch screen console, which offers interactivity via swiping, zooming, drawing, and annotating, allowing rapid measuring and manipulation. With its small footprint HDi is easy to integrate into catheterization laboratories. The Kodama® HD IVUS catheter, which houses the ultrasound transducer, has not only been designed for improved image quality, but also for imp%roved pushability and deliverability. HDi offers both manual and super fast automated pullback options up to 10 mm/s. In this setting HDi can complete pullback up to 20 times faster, reducing the time from minutes to seconds and minimizing ischemic risk and motion artifacts.
ACIST Medical Systems, Inc. Launches HDi High-Definition IVUS
Sep 17 14
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
Aug 6 14
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.
