Radi Medical Systems AB Announces The First Shipment Of The Next Generation Pressure Wire, PressureWire(R) Certus


1/29/2007 11:40:24 AM

WILMINGTON, Delaware, January 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Radi Medical Systems, Inc, a subsidiary of Radi Medical Systems AB (Radi), a designer and manufacturer of innovative devices in interventional cardiology, announced today the first shipment to customers of PressureWire(R) Certus. The hydrophilic coated wire is a new design concept for pressure wires and the improved performance of the wire provides better maneuverability, compatibility, and reliability to interventional cardiologists.

"The PressureWire(R) Certus certainly provides a large performance improvement over previous generations. The wire is very torqueable and we advanced it to difficult locations with ease." commented Dr. Massoud Leesar, University Hospital, Louisville, KY.

Another leading interventional cardiologist stated, "For somebody like me, working with PressureWire(R) for the last 15 years and having witnessed progress in wire quality slowly, although steadily, it was an almost ecstatic feeling to have a wire now which so easily and rapidly went to the spot in the coronary arteries we wanted."

PressureWire(R) Certus was recently evaluated in selected European and US hospitals where the majority of Physicians' commented that the PressureWire(R) Certus had comparable performance characteristics to their standard PTCA guidewires.

"The next generation PressureWire(R) Certus is the culmination of our intense R&D efforts that focuses on continually improving our product performance to interventional cardiologists," said Thomas Engstrom, CEO, Radi Medical Systems. "We are always looking to make improvements in our products to improve patient care."

The PressureWire(R) Certus shipments will begin with US customers and an over the wire version will be available for shipment in early February.

Radi Medical Systems AB develops, manufactures and sells medical devices that improve patient care. Our pioneering work within the field of interventional cardiology has resulted in market-leading intravascular sensors and homeostasis management devices. We continue to work closely with medical practitioners to refine techniques and find new uses for our devices, as well as provide unrivaled education and support. Based in Uppsala, Sweden, Radi Medical Systems was founded in 1988. Today we employ more than 320 people globally, with representation in 42 countries.
