Avinger, Inc. Announces New FDA Clearance for Lumivascular Imaging Console, Enabling Vessel Measurement Via Touchscreen

Avinger, Inc. announced that the company has received a new 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Lightbox L250 imaging console. With this new FDA clearance, the Lightbox L250 now provides detailed measurement of vessels with a few simple taps to a touch screen, helping further improve visualization inside the vessel before, during, and after Pantheris™ Lumivascular atherectomy procedures for the treatment of PAD. In addition, this enhanced technology allows the clinician to create borders and measurements in seconds to determine the area of any vessel feature, automatically generate minimum and maximum diameters within a given area, and generate vessel size measurements for reference vessel sizing to facilitate adjunctive therapies. Users can easily add and move reference points for even greater control. Atherectomy is a minimally invasive treatment for PAD in which a catheter-based device is used to remove plaque from a blood vessel. Lumivascular technology allows physicians, for the first time ever, to see from inside the artery during a directional atherectomy procedure by using an imaging modality called optical coherence tomography, or OCT, which is displayed on the Lightbox console. In the past, physicians have had to rely solely on X-ray as well as tactile feedback to guide their tools while treating complicated arterial disease. With the Lumivascular approach, physicians can more accurately navigate their devices and treat PAD lesions, the real time OCT images generated from inside the artery, without exposing healthcare workers and patients to the negative effects of ionizing radiation. The new software will be made available to all existing L250 users at no cost and will be incorporated in all future Lightbox products as part of the standard software packages.
