The endoarterial biopsy (EABx) catheter: A minimally invasive cardiovascular catheter designed to exclusively biopsy the inner layers of arteries.
VBS Interventional has developed the endoarterial biopsy catheter for the study, diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of vascular-based diseases.
The endoarterial biopsy catheter will provide physicians with the ability to percutaneously obtain biopsy specimens from the inner layers of the arterial wall.
Arterial biopsies can be analyzed using histopathological, genomic, and proteomic methods in order to describe current vascular disease status; they also provide important information about eventual disease progression as well as enable the design of individualized, effective therapies.
The catheter is compatible with the existing cardiac catheterization environment. Endoarterial biopsies can eventually be performed on an outpatient basis.
The device is intended for single use only. It can be used to obtain multiple biopsy samples from multiple arterial locations during a single procedure and is then disposed of.
