Reflow Medical has received breakthrough device designation for its Temporary Spur Stent System from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The retrievable stent technology is intended to treat below-the-knee (BTK) peripheral artery disease.

The Temporary Spur Stent System comprises a patented retrievable stent system. It features a series of radially expandable spikes to create numerous pathways.

These pathways will assist in delivering antiproliferative drugs and ensure increased uptake into the vessel wall and also facilitate acute luminal gain, the company claims.

Reflow Medical CEO Isa Rizk said: “We are extremely grateful to the FDA for their expedited designation of the Temporary Spur Stent System as a Breakthrough Device.

“We plan to take full advantage of the Program’s benefits, accelerating our efforts towards meeting the requirements of the review process as we advance this novel technology, with the goal of improving the lives of patients.”
