Technologies for Detection and Therapy of Vascular Plaques

Vascular Atherosclerotic Plaques

Vascular Atherosclerotic Plaques

Vascular plaques can be divided to two categories, stable plaques and vulnerable plaques. Vulnerable atherosclerotic plaques are the major cause of sudden cardiac death. Detection of this type of plaques is a major challenge in cardiology.

Local Delivery of Therapy: Atheron detector catheters present opportunities for simultaneous delivery of therapeutics as diseased tissue is detected. This capability provides an integrated one-step approach to patient care. Varity of therapies are being investigated for vulnerable plaques, and all of them can be incorporated into our catheter system.
