In this informative video, product specialist Guy Nothem introduces the RXi® Rapid Exchange FFR System. The RXi® system, combined with the Navvus® Rapid Exchange Micr0Catheter, employs a cutting-edge fiber optic transducer to ensure precise FFR measurements. Notably, interventional cardiologists can utilize their preferred 0.014″ wire while maintaining optimal wire position within the coronary artery throughout the procedure. The Navvus® MicroCatheter boasts several key characteristics, including an entry profile of just 0.016″, a tapered tip for smooth transition through any coronary disease. The plug-and-play monitor is effortlessly set up by plugging it in and zeroing it once initially. It displays essential patient information such as Pa (proximal pressure), PD (distal pressure), Pd/Pa, FFR (Fractional Flow Reserve), case summary, and much more. A standout feature of the RXi® system is its ability to easily input PV, setting it apart from other FFR systems. Watch the video to delve into comprehensive insights about the RXi® Rapid Exchange FFR System, including its components, applications, and setup procedure.
“The fiber optic transducer is positioned just five mm from the tip of the catheter which is our competitive advantage. Pressure wires have a transducer set back 30mm from the tip which requires much more real estate to get their transducer beyond a coronary stenosis. The Navvus® has a 26 cm monorail segment which is similar to most angioplasty balloon systems. The Navvus® has two femeroal markers. One at 80 and one at 100 cm.” – Guy Nothem
