Bonn, Germany, 06. September 2011 – Eurocor and Ocentes Suministros announced today the launch of FREEWAY™, the latest second generation percuntanious transluminal angioplasty (PTA) balloon technology in Venezuela on September 05, 2011. More than 50 international cardiologists and neuro radiologists gathered at the Hotel Renaissance La Castellana in Venezuela to hear the latest data on Eurocor’s drug-eluting balloon technologie. Prof. Karl-Ludwig Schulte, Berlin (Germany) held a lecture about drug-eluting ballooning in PAD, FREEWAY 035 and FREEWAY 014. He is one of the Principal Investigators of the FREERIDE study, an international prospective randomized study. 280 patients will be enrolled with stenotic or restenotic lesions in the SFA to treat them either with FREEWAY™ or plain old balloon (POBA).
On the next day Dr. Senf from Maracaibo said, “We just finished using a FREEWAY, excellent balloon and great navigability”. Katja Hausner, Director Corporate Business Business Affairs, Eurocor is confident; “This is a successful starting point in Venezuela for our peripheral market with FREEWAY”.
