"Surefire designed our line of angiographic catheters to help advance interventional radiology procedures by providing optimal diagnostic imaging and detail during infusion procedures," CEO Jim Chomas said in prepared remarks. "We are excited to offer a suite of products to better meet their clinical needs. Further, the large inner lumen provides a new level of flexibility to these physicians."
Including the latest FDA nod, Surefire has received 3 510(k) clearances since July 2011, according to a press release. The company has clearance for its new ST and LT infusion systems, as well as for the Surefire Infusion System, which also received CE mark approval in the European Union l in August 2012.
Surefire Medical will launch its newly cleared catheters in the U.S. this year, according to a company statement.
