Volcano Corporation (Nasdaq: VOLC) $26.51. Today announced that results from the largest study of its kind show that stent procedures guided by intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) resulted in better patient outcomes and fewer complications at 30 days and 12 months compared to procedures without IVUS, and were safe.
Enrolling 3,349 patients, the IVUS sub-study is part of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation's (CRF) ADAPT-DES study (Assessment of Dual AntiPlatelet Therapy with Drug-Eluting Stents), a prospective, multi-center registry of 8,583 patients with coronary artery disease undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with drug-eluting stents (DES). Results of the ADAPT-DES IVUS sub-study were presented at the 24th Annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) scientific symposium sponsored by CRF.
When compared to procedures without IVUS, IVUS-guided procedures demonstrated a 50% reduction in the incidence of stent thrombosis (a blood clot on the surface of a stent) and 33% reduction in MI that began as soon as 30 days post procedure, and continued for 12 months.No safety issues were identified in the IVUS-guided procedures in the trial, as there was no increase in peri-procedural MI. IVUS cases were not associated with a significant increase in the usage of stents. The majority of stents used in this study were of the latest generation and marketed globally.
What They Do: Volcano Corporation is revolutionizing the medical device industry with a broad suite of technologies that make imaging and therapy simpler, more informative and less invasive.
