OpSens Medical and Vascular Perspectives announcement

Your pressure guidewire to DIAGNOSE and TREAT with confidence.

Vascular Perspectives would like to announce an exclusive UK distribution agreement with OpSens Medical. OpSens Medical is a medical device company leader in fiber optic sensor-guided solutions. OpSens offers the OptoWire™ III pressure guidewire designed to assess with physiology indices whether a coronary lesion is significant and needs to be treated.

OptoWire III is powered by FidelaTM, a patented 2nd generation fiber optic sensor with the lowest drift in the industry. This highest accuracy allows OptoWire III to measure physiologic indices including Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR) and diastolic Pressure Ratio (dPR) with consistent and repeatable measurements pre-and post-procedures.

OptoWire III is designed to provide performance similar to a workhorse wire by allowing unique control, torque, and support while achieving greater performance, reducing the time to reach and cross the lesion without compromising the safety of the patient.

OpSens innovative technology makes disconnecting/reconnecting the guidewire several times possible, without the need to re-equalise This translates into the opportunity to provide Percutaneous Coronary Intervention over the same guidewire without device exchange.

OptoWire III is supplied with OptoMonitor 3, an easy-to-use pressure analysis system that can be integrated into the video and DICOM system of the cathlab.
