 Three-In-One IQCath Catheter Receives Approval for Use in Europe
IQCath Balloon Dilatation Catheter used for the treatment of blocked artificial vascular access vessels in dialysis patients, developed by Hotspur Technologies, has been approved for use in Europe.

Usually, patients with obstructed AV fistulas are required to undergo a revascularization procedure, where vascular surgeons employ distinct devices to perform embolectomy, and angioplasty.

The IQCath is capable of performing the required functions without using multiple catheters, which cuts the time and cost of procedures.
