Simplify complex coronary interventions with PCI ASSIST

PCI ASSIST1 helps improve the image quality even in the most complex cases, at no extra X-Ray dose. For complex PCI procedures, such as bifurcations, PCI ASSIST helps to increase accuracy of stent placement, therefore reducing risks of MACEs such as restenosis and thrombosis. PCI ASSIST can help physicians increase their activity expanding to more complex procedures with confidence, opening also to novel generation of stents such as BVS.

CARDIOLOGY

PCI ASSIST helps improve visibility2 up to +85% in moving anatomy, and up to 75% in larger patients, at the same dose.

With OneTouchQA measure the size of the vessel and analyze the percentage of stenosis from tableside directly from the Central touchscreen. Then, determine the optimal diameter and length for the stents you require for the case.

StentVesselViz was used to open the first stent at the ostia level to get an optimal position for the second stent in the side branch. StentViz was used to guide the stents to reach minimal overlap.

With StentViz precisely evaluate the stent overlap, fracture and uneven deployment. StentVesselViz enabled assessment of stent deployment in relation to the vessel wall.

1 - PCI ASSIST refers to features of Innova IGS 520, Innova IGS 530 and Discovery IGS 730.

2 - Improvement vs. same test without PCI ASSIST option. IQ and visibility improvement is measured on Innova IGS530 with phantoms using various Plexiglas Thicknesses, acquisition parameters and the NEMA spoke wheel tool (ref 1), calculating the ratio of the contrast of the moving wires to the background noise level. The amount of Image Quality improvement related to PCI ASSIST depends on the acquisition parameters, clinical task, patient size, amount of motion in the image, anatomical location, and clinical practice.
