Spectranetics is a medical device company that develops, manufactures and
markets single-use medical devices used in minimally invasive surgical
procedures within the cardiovascular system in conjunction with its
proprietary excimer laser system. Its CVX-300(R) excimer laser is the only
system approved by the FDA for multiple cardiovascular procedures, including
coronary atherectomy, and the removal of problematic pacemaker and
defibrillator leads. Nearly all of the company's FDA-approved and
investigational applications have received Communautes Europeennes (CE) mark
registration for marketing within Europe. In April 2004 Spectranetics
obtained 510(k) clearance from the FDA for the laser-based treatment of
patients suffering from total occlusions (blockages) in their leg arteries
that are not crossable with a guide wire.
