The Food and Drug Administration has given Endosonics subsidiaryCardiovascular Dynamics (CVD) clearance to market expanded applicationsfor its Periflow line of peripheral balloon angioplasty-infusioncatheters. Earlier this year, the FDA cleared Periflow for percutaneoustransluminal angioplasty (PTA) as well as the infusion of site-specificcontrast media for peripheral vascular anatomy (SCAN 2/15/95).The agency's most recent action allows Periflow to be marketedfor both PTA and the site-specific delivery of therapeutic pharmaceuticalsinto the peripheral vasculature. CVD, of Irvine, CA, plans tobegin U.S. shipments of Periflow by the end of this year.
