Parrish Medical Center Diamondback 360 system

The Diamondback 360° System uses the principle of centrifugal force. As crown rotation increases, centrifugal force presses the eccentrically mounted, diamond-coated crown against the stenotic lesion, removing a thin layer of plaque. The increasing crown orbit creates a larger lumen — minimizing procedure time and expense of catheter upsizing.

Additional benefits of the orbiting motion include:
Removing plaque while minimizing the potential for stress or injury to the media layer, and reducing the risk of barotrauma.
The use of a 6 French introducer sheath
