Surefire Infusion System for Infusion Embolizations Gets CE Mark

Since launching in August 2011, Surefire Medical has been delivering innovative infusion systems for the interventional radiology market. Surefire’s infusion catheters—which precisely deliver embolic agents through a novel expandable tip that collapses in forward flow and dynamically expands to the vessel wall in reverse flow—are designed to increase infusion efficiency and minimize reflux.

“After using the Surefire Infusion System during infusion procedures, I can see how it can potentially improve on patient outcomes both with respect to safety profile and improved tumor control. As a leader in cancer treatment, we are always looking for cutting-edge technologies like the Surefire device. After carefully documenting our experience over the past six months, I believe that this technology is potentially game changing and is a powerful tool for interventional radiologists.”

— Steven Rose, M.D. at University of California at San Diego Medical Center

Surefire Medical has assembled a team of professionals with expertise in the medical, manufacturing and financial industries, as well as a wide range of managerial and entrepreneurial experience.

WESTMINSTER, Colo., USA (Sept. 5, 2012) – European regulators have approved Surefire

Medical’s Surefire Infusion System, a next generation device for chemo- and radioembolization

procedures. The Colorado-based medical device company today announced that it is launching

this product in the European market immediately.

“Surefire Medical developed this ground-breaking technology to provide interventional

radiologists with improved embolization certainty during their infusion procedures,” said Jim

Chomas, CEO of Surefire Medical. “With the CE Mark approval, we are able to introduce the

Surefire Infusion System, which may offer substantial advantages over a standard

microcatheter, throughout Europe.”

Clinical

Surefire Medical, Inc., based in Westminster, Colo., was founded in 2009 to develop innovative

infusion systems for the interventional radiology and interventional oncology markets.

Surefire’s infusion systems are designed to precisely deliver embolic agents through a unique

microcatheter with an expandable tip that collapses in forward flow and dynamically expands

to the vessel wall in reverse flow in order to increase embolization efficiency, minimize reflux

and reduce damage to healthy tissue. For more information, please visit

Surefire Medical out of Westminster, CO received European clearance to market its eponymous Surefire Infusion System for use in for chemo- and radioembolization procedures. The system is designed to offer a more consistent embolization option over traditional microcatheters.

According to the company, a clinical study of the Surefire demonstrated no visible (under angiography) reflux nor any evidence of embolization of tissue not explicitly targeted by the physician. The system has been approved in the U.S. since the Summer of last year.
