During the quarter, we continued to advance our mission of being the leading precision guided therapy company by gaining market share for our core businesses through technology innovation and our sales, distribution and market development initiatives, said Scott Huennekens, president and chief executive officer.
Our total medical disposable business increased approximately 24 percent in the quarter, driven by a 37 percent increase in FFR (Fractional Flow Reserve) disposable revenues and a 19 percent increase in IVUS (Intravascular Ultrasound) disposable revenues.
A number of important factors are helping to drive our growth. There is a growing volume of data portraying the improved patient outcomes and economic benefits from the use of Functional PCI, or the diagnosis and treatment of lesions with proven ischemia, based on function as defined with FFRnot angiography aloneand the use of intravascular guidance to optimize and confirm the therapy during the procedure. These outcomes are resulting in elevated practice guidelines for FFR and IVUS by leading clinical organizations. In addition, the increasing focus on documenting medical necessity for procedures is creating additional momentum for our technologies, he added.
