OrbusNeich has CE marked its Scoreflex coronary dilatation catheter for sale in Europe. It is designed to be used in focused force angioplasty, where the force resulting from balloon inflation in a stenotic lesion is concentrated at one or more locations within the stenosis. The Hong Kong firm said the device's "dual wire system creates a focal stress pattern to facilitate effective controlled plaque fracture at low-resolution pressure". It also has "a low crossing profile and unbeatable trackability".
