Frauenfeld, December 2016 - SIS Medical AG has moved to a new production facility in Frauenfeld. From there the company is ready to provide higher capacity to serve the increasing demand of balloon catheters of international market's. After the move significant investments will be made to strength the R&D department.
Initially recommended and used for the treatment of so called ''undilatable coronary lesions'' after all other NC balloons have failed (very high pressure dilation for undilatable coronary lesions, Gioel Gabriel Secco) and for post dilatation of stent in highly calcified lesions, it has became an important tool in the armamentarium of the Interventional Cardiologist.
In combination with rotablation in highly calcified lesions (see video sequences attached courtesy of Kambis Mashayekhi, MD, Bad Krotzingen).
Case: 1: CTO of LCX
Rotablator wire: 1.5mm burr
