Millar Gains CE Mark Expansion for Pressure Catheter
November 26, 2018
Millar received an expansion of its Mikro-Cath pressure catheter CE mark to include airway and intra-compartmental pressure measurements.
The pressure catheter previously received European approval for making cardiovascular pressure measurements, and it received FDA clearance in March 2017 for the expanded indications.
The expansion allows physicians to continuously monitor patient compartment pressure and accurately diagnose acute compartment syndrome, a medical emergency usually caused by internal bleeding or swelling tissue that can lead to permanent muscle damage.
