The ABS Product Platform

This two minute animation shows in idealized form a procedure that is likely to take the cardiologist about 10 minutes. A vessel bifurcation with lesions in a 1.1.1 plaque pattern is shown. The ABS system is introduced through the PCI procedure and the stenting system is shown perfectly aligned following inflation of the mother and daughter balloons. The system of delivery ensures automatic alignment and perfect positioning of a bifurcating stent.

Dedicated Bifurcating Stent

The platform consists of a dual-catheter independently moveable, modular system.  The hybrid over-the-wire _ monorail system mitigates the issue of wire wrap. The system is advanced over one monorail wire into the coronary and the second wire is only advanced just before the mother catheter gets out of the guide catheter.  Our propriety crimping technology allows for partial crimping of the mother stent which is necessary to have the“monorail in monorail” independently movable modular system. Alignment / phase-shift / orientation is automatic with our system and delivery mechanism and does not require a new skill set. This is because of several design factors of the ABS delivery platform. The side-hole is oriented towards the side branch over the shaft of the daughter catheter and not just a side-branch wire.The pull back of the daughter catheter into the mother stent, as facilitated by the mother catheter sleeve rotates the mother catheter and stent as necessary. And finally inflating the daughter balloon which partially deploys the proximal segment of the mother stent simultaneously with the daughter stent guarantees perfect positioning, as well as coverage of the “vulnerable zone”. That is why our stents are designed to evenly scaffold every bifurcation.  Our systems are sized on the basis of Murray’s law, obviating the need of additional balloons for completion of the procedure.
