(ASI), a privately held company headquartered in Kalamazoo, MI, with offices in Palo Alto, CA, announced today numerous presentations at the upcoming EuroPCR 2016 Congress in Paris on May 17-20. These presentations will discuss a novel approach to renal denervation based on the CE-marked Peregrine System™ Infusion Catheter. The Peregrine System provides targeted delivery of a neurolytic agent, such as alcohol, to treat sympathetic nerves located in the outer region of the renal arteries.

In the U.S., the Peregrine System has been 510(k) cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the infusion of diagnostic and therapeutic agents into the perivascular area; however, it is not currently cleared or approved for the treatment of hypertension.
The Peregrine System is intended for use by trained physicians familiar with the risks as detailed in the instructions for use.
The Peregrine European Post-Market Study includes multiple European clinical sites to enable additional cardiologists and hypertensionists to evaluate Targeted Perivascular Renal Denervation using the Peregrine System in their patients suffering from hypertension.
