Treat your Peripheral Artery Disease with
state-of-the-art lumivascular Technology at

Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is a common circulatory condition that affects nearly 20 million adults in the U.S. The disease is caused by plaque build-up inside the arteries resulting in obstruction of blood flow to the lower limbs and feet.

If you have additional questions about PAD or lumivascular technology, please consult with your physician.

  • Nearly 20 million adults in the U.S. suffer from PAD
  • PAD is the leading cause of amputation in people over 50
  • The lumivascular approach treats patients with PAD in a minimally invasive way, resulting in quick recovery time
  • By combining two breakthrough technologies, damage to the native artery can be avoided and recurrance rates are reduced

Dameron Hospital is the first hospital in Sacramento, San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties to provide patients with these state-of-the-art technologies.

“The lumivascular technology system is an incredible advancement in the treatment of vascular disease. It holds the potential to postpone or entirely avoid surgical bypasses and amputations for patients suffering from PAD.”
— Dr. Daren Primack, Dameron Hospital Medical Director for Peripheral Vascular Program

What is the LUMIVASCULAR APPROACH?

ocelot

A MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGH FOR TREATING PATIENTS WITH PAD

Ocelot is the first line of devices using lumivascular technology. A significant advancement in medicine, Ocelot maneuvers through totally blocked arteries in the legs using an integrated “camera” to see from inside the artery.

Pantheris

A RADIATION-FREE TECHNOLOGY: SEE MORE, RADIATE LESS

Pantheris lumivascular atherectomy system is an innovative image-guided therapy that allows for removal of plaque with a high level of efficiency. Unlike angioplasty and stenting, which are designed to push plaque to the side, atherectomy involves shaving and removing the plaque from the artery to restore normal blood flow.

  • Ocelot crosses through blocked arteries in the legs while using an integrated “camera” to capture real-time images
  • Pantheris removes plaque from PAD affected arteries with unprecedented precision
  • By combining these two technologies, guesswork is eliminated and normal arterial wall structures can be left unharmed
