EndoCross Receives CE Mark Approval for the ENABLER-C Coronary Catheter System for the Crossing of Coronary Chronic Total Occlusions

EndoCross, Ltd., received CE Mark approval for the ENABLER-C Coronary Catheter System. The ENABLER-C features a unique controlled guidewire advancement technology currently available in the CE Marked ENABLER-P Peripheral Catheter Systems. The CE Mark of the ENABLER-C Coronary Catheter System follows the successful first-in-man study of the ENABLER-C that took place at the Institut Cardiovasculaire Paris-Sud.

“EndoCross has developed a unique chronic occlusion crossing device that can facilitate penetration and crossing of complex occlusions with standard off-the-shelf wires. The device allows for effective and controlled luminal crossing.” said Dr. Maurice Buchbinder, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of EndoCross.

The ENABLER technology makes use of a propriety balloon design that allows for continuous and controlled luminal guidewire advancement through coronary chronic total occlusions (CTOs). “The addition of the Coronary Catheter System, together with our existing peripheral femoropopliteal and BTK solutions, provides physicians with the tools they need to make the crossing of CTOs a more straight forward, consistent, and successful procedure,” said Yaron Eshel, Chief Operating Officer of EndoCross.

According to a 2010 study completed by the European Society of Cardiology and published in the European Heart Journal, Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) remains as the leading cause of death in both the European Union and globally. CAD is a major cause of morbidity and loss of quality of life. The disease generated 27% of total cardiovascular disease costs, a total of $23 billion in one year.

Significant improvements in acute and long-term results drive an ongoing interest in the Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) treatment of CTOs. However, due to the complexity of existing solutions and a persistent degree of outcome uncertainty, many patients with CTOs are currently referred for more costly coronary artery bypass graft surgery rather than treated by PCI. Mr. Eshel concluded, “The ENABLER-C Catheter System uses familiar balloon catheter and guidewire technologies and does not require expensive or complex capital equipment. Therefore, the system may provide the simplicity and consistency needed to increase the overall rate of PCI treatment of CTOs, resulting in improved patient treatment and lower overall cost”.

About EndoCross
Privately held, EndoCross Ltd. is headquartered in Yokneam, Israel with operations in Amherst, New Hampshire, USA. The ENABLER is a combination of a unique balloon catheter and a novel automated inflation system. The system empowers physicians to quickly and easily advance angioplasty guidewires beyond arterial blockages, thus avoiding long and complex procedures. It is the expectation of EndoCross management that the ENABLER Catheter System be incorporated into the standard treatment options for PCI, such as angioplasty balloons, atherectomy devices and stents.

Caution:

 

The ENABLER Catheter Systems are currently not available for sale in the United States.

The ENABLER Peripheral and Coronary Systems are CE Marked and available for use in Europe.

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Transforming cloud-based data into a reportable format can be a very expensive, time-intensive and complex operation. As a SaaS platform with more than 30 million global users, Cornerstone OnDemand’s challenge was to create a scalable solution that would improve the time it took customers to access their user data. Our Real-Time Data Warehouse (RTDW) process vastly reduced data time-to-availability from 24 hours to just 10 minutes. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Mark Goldin, Chief Technolo...
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
