“We are driving strong growth and market-leading performance in our coronary and peripheral atherectomy businesses through strong sales execution in the United States, new product introductions and the launch of our business in Japan. We successfully delivered annual revenue growth and our first annual net profit despite experiencing temporary business disruptions early in fiscal 2018. Throughout the year, we remained focused on fulfilling our mission to serve patients suffering from coronary and peripheral artery disease. In total, our orbital atherectomy systems were used in the treatment of over 67,000 patients. Fiscal 2018 included important milestones for CSI as we introduced important innovations on our existing peripheral and coronary orbital atherectomy systems. We also began expanding our product portfolio with procedure support products and launched orbital atherectomy in Japan, our first international market. We anticipate that growth in orbital atherectomy, a broader product portfolio and international expansion will remain important growth drivers in future periods,” prez & CEO Scott Ward said in a press release.
