Avinger received a CE Mark for its image-guided Pantheris Lumivascular atherectomy system for treatment of peripheral artery disease.

The new device features a firmer shaft, a more robust nose cone that can store more tissue, an improved cutter design, and a simplified single balloon system for the occlusion of blood flow and device positioning, the company said.

It enables surgeons performing atherectomy, a minimally invasive surgery for PAD, to see from inside the artery during the procedure via Avinger’s Lightbox console instead of using x-rays.
