Philips Healthcare's Phoenix Atherectomy System

The Phoenix atherectomy system combines the benefits of existing atherectomy systems to deliver a unique, hybrid atherectomy option to help physicians tailor the treatment approach for each patient. It cuts, captures, and clears diseased tissue with one insertion. Phoenix treats a broad range of tissue types, from soft plaque to calcified arteries, and can be used for lesions above and below the knee.

Front cutter

Front cutter clears tissue in a way that may help reduce potential trauma to the vessel.

Capture and clearance

Continuous capture and passive clearance of debulked material into the catheter resulted in a <1% rate of symptomatic distal emboli in the EASE trial.

Ease of use

Phoenix is battery-powered and handle-operated. No capital equipment or additional procedural accessories are required.

Deliverability

Low-profile, front-cutting design allows for direct lesion access without having to first pass a nosecone. The over-the-wire design aids in trackability and pushability of catheter.

Versatility

EASE trial data confirms the ability of Phoenix to effectively treat a broad range of tissue types, from soft plaque to calcified arteries, for lesions both above and below the knee. The 1.8 and 2.2 mm tracking catheters are suitable for treating small vessels or highly stenosed lesions. The 2.4 mm deflecting catheter is suitable for larger vessels or eccentric lesions.
