AngioSoma announces today that it is filing new improvements to six patents, all of which will be used as “prior art” to its newest catheter, the OmniCath 2.
AngioSoma, Inc. (OTCQB: SOAN) announces today that it is filing new improvements to its US Patent No. 5,728,129 and five predecessor patents 4,850,957; 4,994,067; 5,087,265; and 5,695,519; all of which will be used as “prior art” to its newest catheter, the OmniCath 2. With the new improvements being added, the OmniCath 2 may be the most versatile debulking and vessel remodeling atherectomy catheter available for endovascular interventional procedures in treating coronary and peripheral artery diseases resulting in plaque-atherosclerosis. The new improvements include:
- a plaque cutting mechanism that allows cutting from either (a) the
end-tip to first recanalize the blocked lumen, then (b) a further step
of completely debulking the lesion using the directional side-window;
- discrete angioplasty balloon proximal (upstream) to blood flow
allowing for second step angioplasty and vessel wall remolding;
- using the same balloon for optional upstream blocking of blood flow
allowing simultaneous saline irrigation and clear endoscopic view from
the side-cutting window or most distal tip, or for video feed giving
the operator/physician precise visual control; and
- completely detachable and disposable catheter shaft, driveline,
cutter, and angioplasty balloon from motor assembly
preventing cross contamination of infections such as MRSA while
allowing reuse of its lithium battery powered motor.
Per CEO Alexanderia K. Blankenship, “The OmniCath 2 will be priced
competitively with both balloon catheters and atherectomy devices
providing physicians with a multiplicity of easy options.” The
company estimates that it may be able to achieve sales of over $1
billion annually when fully integrated into the market.
