3 Overview The Zylon ® Angioplasty catheter with “ZeroFold” Balloon Innovative cardiovascular device Developed to expand clinical application of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) Based on patented technology Angioplasty balloon catheter with “absolutely the lowest profile” Allows certain previously un-crossable or difficult-to-cross stenosed coronary arteries to be crossable and dilatable with efficacy and precision Supported by NIH SBIR Phase II Grant # 5 R44 H

5 PTCA Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) Minimally invasive surgical approach For treatment of coronary artery blockages Stenosed artery

6 Current Catheters Current Balloon Catheters As typically used in PTCA procedures Balloon is pre-sized, folded, wrapped and located at end of catheter Catheter is placed across a stenotic lesion Upon presserization, balloon unfolds to force open the stenosis

7 Crossing the Lesion Physician must be able to cross the lesion to dilate the stenosis Any increase in crossing resistance restricts clinical usefulness, especially in these procedures: Small arteries Tight stenoses Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO)

8 Surgery Inability to Cross Lesion Consigns patient to open heart surgery Open heart surgery is effective, but characterized by: High morbidity High Expense Long recovery times The Preferred treatment is the minimally invasive balloon angioplasty procedure

9 The Problem Reducing the profile of the balloon in PTCA catheters still remains clinically significant in interventional cardiology.

11 The Zylon ® Solution The Zylon ® PTCA Catheter with ZeroFold Balloon Based on patented technology Utilizes a non folded balloon Inflates to full size after crossing target stenosis Eliminates the folded and wrapped balloon of current angioplasty catheters

12 The Zylon ® Solution Standard Catheter and Balloon Full size balloon attached to catheter shaft Then wrapped and folded to reduce profile Creates region of high cross resistance due to presence of multiple layers of wrapped and folded balloon material

13 The Zylon ® Solution Zylon ® Catheter with Zero Fold Balloon Balloon has NO wrapped or folded material Exhibits smooth, continuous transition from tip to proximal shaft “Absolutely the lowest profile” possible

14 The Zylon ® Solution Inflation Zylon ® “ZeroFold” balloons inflate with predictable radial expansion characteristics High burst strength High flexibility Low axial growth

15 The Zylon ® Solution Zylon ® “ZeroFold” balloon vs. standard folded balloon No Fold Balloon Folded Balloon Inner Lumen

16 The Zylon Solution Upper Catheter 0.024” Hole Test Fail - at distal fold Zylon Catheter 0.024” Hole Test Pass - entire balloon

17 The Zylon Solution Other advantages Improved Pushability Easier crossing, less resistance Flexible Smooth gentle inflation Easier to manufacture Simple, no retraining required Smaller* profile over entire range of coronary balloon catheter sizes ( *)

18 The Zylon Solution Applications CTO Pre-dilation POBA (plain old balloon angioplasty) Stent delivery – lower profile with custom stent Rx, over-the-wire, fixed wire versions
