A Revolutionary Technology For Treating Peripheral Artery Disease

Ocelot, an advanced minimally invasive technology for treating Peripheral arterial disease (PAD), was first brought to Southwest Ohio by Premier Health.

Aptly named for the cat that possesses excellent night vision, Ocelot utilizes a revolutionary approach, called lumivascular (lumi = light, vascular = artery). Ocelot incorporates an imaging fiber on the end of a catheter, which acts as a camera to allow physicians to see inside an artery.

The Ocelot technology enables physicians to more accurately navigate through complicated blood vessels, drill through blockages, and restore blood flow.

PAD is an under-recognized, common circulatory problem that affects 8 to 12 million adults in the United States. PAD is caused by a build-up of plaque in the arteries that blocks blood flow to the legs and feet. If you develop PAD, you may notice hip, leg, or calf pain when walking. The pain typically stops with rest. Some people, however, may be symptom-free until the disease has progressed to the point of causing irreversible damage to the affected limb.
