The catheter-based system will be branded as TIGEREYE and provides real-time imaging from inside the vessel during a CTO-crossing procedure.

“We are excited to receive U.S. pre-marketing clearance for TIGEREYE, which we believe will be a significant growth driver for our CTO-crossing business,” said Jeff Soinski, Avinger’s President and CEO.

The company believes it is a significant advancement for patients with chronic total occlusions and provides Avinger with a market growth opportunity as chronic total occlusions present a technical challenge to physicians treating peripheral artery disease.
