WILMINGTON, Mass., March 17 /PRNewswire/ -- OmniSonics Medical Technologies, Inc., a developer of advanced medical devices for use in the treatment of vascular disease, announced today that it has enrolled its first patient in the SONIC I Clinical Registry. SONIC I is a prospective, multi-centered U.S. registry study of the company's OmniWave(TM) Endovascular System (OES) in patients undergoing percutaneous mechanical thrombectomy of acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT). All patients enrolled in the SONIC I are scheduled for follow-up at 30 days and 6 months following the OmniWave procedure. The first patient was enrolled by Daniel Clair, M.D., Chairman of Vascular Surgery at The Cleveland Clinic.
The OmniWave Endovascular System is based on patented OmniWave technology, the first minimally invasive catheter-based technology that delivers low-power, transverse ultrasonic energy to remove thrombus quickly, safely, and effectively. Thrombus (also known as a blood clot) occurs in a number of conditions including deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and acute limb ischemia. DVT affects approximately 2 million people in the U.S. every year, and acute limb ischemia affects over 250,000 people in the U.S. every year.
