Learn More About the Ostial PRO? Stent Positioning System

OSTIAL PRO? Stent Positioning System allows easier assessment of coronary or renal ostia, improving the accuracy of stent positioning in AO lesions:
? Unique design provides three dimensional visual and tactile feedback
? Excellent pushability and strong pullback capabilities
? Compatible with 6, 7, and 8 French guiding catheters

OSTIAL PRO? Stent Positioning System helps avoid potential complications.
Once positioned against the ostium, the OSTIAL PRO? Stent Positioning System:
? Helps prevent deep seating of the guide catheter1
? May decrease risk of dissection by minimizing guide catheter tip trauma
? Facilitates precise stent positioning in the ostium to help reduce the risk of distal and proximal lesion stent deployment and the need for more costly reinterventions

The OSTIAL PRO? Stent Positioning System enables more accurate stent placement, which can help reduce:
? The length of procedures
? Fluoroscopy and radiation exposure
? Use of contrast (important for preserving renal function)

The Challenge of Stenting Aorto-Ostial Lesions
? Aorto-ostial (AO) stenting accounts for an estimated 5%-7% of coronary interventions and more than 90% of renal artery interventions.
? AO lesions are more likely to be associated with suboptimal angiographic results due to lesion rigidity and elastic recoil, and have higher rates of target lesion revascularization.
? Conventional angiographic landmarks used during stenting of AO lesions are often ambiguous and/or misleading, making accurate stent positioning extremely difficult.
? In a retrospective study of 100 patients in whom stents were placed using angiographic landmarks, correct stent positioning was achieved in only 46% of cases.
? This device was associated with decreased procedure time, radiation exposure and reduced use of contrast.

Yellow marker
permits positive identification and differentiation of the Ostial Pro? Stent Positioning System from other wires.

Nitinol wire
0.018 inch wire allows greater pushability and strong pullback capabilities.

15 mm leg span
accommodates ostia.

Nitinol gold-plated legs
allow greater opacification to help identify the plane of the ostium.

Flexible distal wire
The 4 cm distal end is ground down to 0.014 inches and heat-treated to allow more flexibility to prevent straightening of the guiding catheter curve, while retaining push/pull characteristics.

Flexible cylinder
Longitudinal opening allows use with 6, 7, or 8 French guiding catheters.


Tapered cylinder
permits easy pullback into the guide.

Overall length of 127 cm
permits use with any guide that is ≤100 cm in length.
