Teleflex to Introduce the New Arrow® AC3 Optimus™ Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump and the Product Portfolio from the Recently Acquired Vascular Solutions, Inc. at the European Association for Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions Course (EuroPCR)

WAYNE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 15, 2017-- Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX), a leading global provider of medical technologies for critical care, urology and surgery, will showcase its complex PCI product portfolio recently acquired from the purchase of Vascular Solutions and the new Arrow® AC3 Optimus™ Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump (IABP) at the EuroPCR being held in Paris, France on May 16-19, 2017.

With the recent acquisition of Vascular Solutions, Teleflex now offers a full line of products that give interventional cardiologists the tools they need to handle routine and complex cases, resulting in improved outcomes for patients. Cardiologists worldwide rely on the quality and proven clinical effectiveness of products, such as the GuideLiner® Catheter Platform, TrapLiner™ Catheter, Turnpike® Catheter, Twin-Pass® Torque Dual Access Catheter, and R350™ Guidewire.

Teleflex will also introduce the new Arrow® AC3 Optimus IABP. This device helps a weakened heart pump blood and can deliver IABP therapy to a broad range of patients, even those not previously considered candidates for IABP therapy. Clinicians may use the pump on patients with the most severe arrhythmias or with heart rates as high as 200 beats per minute.1, 2

The Arrow® AC3 Optimus™ IABP has a third-generation AutoPilot® Mode, which uses proprietary algorithms to address key clinical challenges and to simplify the delivery of IABP therapy.3 In AutoPilot® Mode, the Arrow® AC3 Optimus™ IABP automatically adjusts timing and triggering parameters, freeing clinicians to focus on the patient rather than the pump. In addition, the Arrow® AC3 Optimus™ IABP includes several exclusive algorithms, such as WAVE® Inflation Timing, Deflation Timing Management, and Best Signal Analysis, which optimize key functions of the IABP to deliver therapy to the most challenging patients.
