CVi Low Dose Options

In this resource, we look at how the ACIST CVi® Contrast Delivery System optimizes contrast supply. Managing contrast supply can help decrease both dose and waste of contrast, while also reducing the risk of post-procedure CI-AKI for patients presenting for coronary angiography procedures. Some of the key CVi® features and methods that can help reduce contrast media usage are adjusting parameters, real-time dose tracking, optimizing the hand controller, using a smaller catheter, and cine diagnosing.

ACIST FFR Search Information Sheet

FFR-Search is an extensive study investigating the relationship between post-PCI FFR values and clinical outcomes within a real-world patient population. The study employs the ACIST Navvus® Rapid Exchange FFR MicroCatheter, known for its deliverability and crossability. Additionally, this innovative device empowers users with the freedom to select their preferred guidewire, for swift and precise FFR measurements. The study concluded that lower post-PCI values are linked to increased MACE rates at one year. Continue reading to see more results from the study.


“The preliminary data from FFR-Search has the potential to significantly expand this technology’s role in the cath lab in the future, which is why we’re eager to see the important results of the primary endpoint in two years”

FFR-Search Co-PI Dr. Nicolas M. Van Mieghem, MD, PhD, FESC, Director of Interventional Cardiology at Thoraxcenter, Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, Netherlands

COVID-19 Patient Care

ACIST Medical Systems offers diagnostic tools to enhance patient care. Education is a key aspect of our partnership. Clinical evidence highlights the impact of COVID-19 on multiple organs, including the kidneys. Acute kidney injury (AKI) can occur in not just the elderly, but also young and healthy adults with COVID-19. A strong correlation exists between cardiac and kidney injury in COVID-19 patients. AKI is associated with severity and mortality, affecting up to 30% of hospitalized patients. Post-COVID-19 recovery increases the risk of developing chronic kidney disease as well. ACIST CVi™ Contrast Delivery System mitigates the risk of CI-AKI during coronary angiography by reducing contrast dose and preserving renal function. It aligns with SCAI/ACC/AMA guidelines and demonstrates a 22% reduction in contrast delivered compared to the hand manifold. Read to learn more about our solution for optimizing patient care.
