ACT - System

Equipment for the procedure

 

It consists of 4 components:  

 

 

 

ACT - Generator produces electric high-frequency current and has 5 modes of operation.

 

 

ACT - Transducer

converts electric current into mechanical vibration. It is connected direct to the ultrasound waveguide. Ultrasound transducer can be used with different tools for endovascular surgery:guiding catheters, introducers,Y-connectors etc.

 

 

ACT - Waveguide is used for the breakdown of blood clots and atherosclerotic plaques. It has the length of 25-60 cm. The ending of the ultrasound waveguide is coupled to a pivoting head which contains of elastic streak-shape elements. These elements are connected to the spherical component and destroy the thrombus by oscillation.
