AngioSoma, Inc. (OTCQB: SOAN) announces today that it is filing new improvements to its US Patent No. 5,728,129 and five predecessor patents 4,850,957; 4,994,067; 5,087,265; and 5,695,519; all of which will be used as "prior art" to its newest catheter, the OmniCath 2. With the new improvements being added, the OmniCath 2 may be the most versatile debulking and vessel remodeling atherectomy catheter available for endovascular interventional procedures in treating coronary and peripheral artery diseases resulting in plaque-atherosclerosis. The new improvements include:
- a plaque cutting mechanism that allows cutting from either (a) the end-tip to first recanalize the blocked lumen, then (b) a further step of completely debulking the lesion using the directional side-window;
- discrete angioplasty balloon proximal (upstream) to blood flow allowing for second step angioplasty and vessel wall remolding;
- using the same balloon for optional upstream blocking of blood flow allowing simultaneous saline irrigation and clear endoscopic view from the side-cutting window or most distal tip, or for video feed giving the operator/physician precise visual control; and
- completely detachable and disposable catheter shaft, driveline, cutter, and angioplasty balloon from motor assembly preventing cross contamination of infections such as MRSA while allowing reuse of its lithium battery powered motor.
