Executive Summary

Guidant has received approval to sell its ACS RX GEMINI coronary dilation catheter in Japan. The device has a flexible coil feature which provides increased flexibility for use in tortuous arteries. It also uses the company's POWERTRAK shaft technology to help push the catheter across tight lesions. The catheter's balloon material allows for multiple inflation strategies, including primary angioplasty, said the Indianapolis, Indiana-based company. The device has already been launched in international markets, including Europe and the US.
