FreedomFlow’s Modern Mechanism of Action
A modern mechanism of action in a dynamic new PAD platform
Current atherectomy technologies are decades old and constrained by capital equipment and design limitations.
FreedomFlow® provides physicians with the freedom from those constraints and enables them to treat complex peripheral artery disease (PAD) from hip to heel with a simple, effective, and versatile device that is easy to operate, optimizes work flow, and minimizes capital costs and inventory.
It’s the ideal choice for today’s hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and office-based labs.
Leveraging the Physics of Angular Momentum
Helical pattern of diamond-coated spheres eases through complex lesions
FreedomFlow’s unique spiral geometry leverages the physics of angular momentum—a rotational vortex that puts five diamond-coated spheres in constant contact with the vessel wall no matter if advancing or retracting.
Two rotational speeds (50K and 76K RPM) make it possible to treat complex lesions at lower speeds.
Combined with a diamond-coated tip that eases the driveshaft through tight blockages, this new mechanism of action gives physicians a highly efficient, effective, and flexible way to treat complex PAD in vessels ranging from 2 mm to 8 mm in diameter.
5 Fr catheter is approximately 1.5 mm (0.062″) in diameter and treats vessels 2 mm – 4 mm
6 Fr catheter is approximately 2.0 mm (0.082″) in diameter and treats vessels 4 mm – 8 mm
Offset diamond-coated spheres — efficient plaque modification or removal
FreedomFlow features five diamond-coated spheres mounted eccentrically on the driveshaft which, when rotated, move outwards due to centrifugal force, providing constant and consistent contact with the vessel wall for efficient plaque modification or removal.
Driveshaft — dynamic, predictable action
The spiral pattern created by the rotating spheres also maximizes the dynamic motion of the outward force, which is not only greater and more predictable, but allows physicians to achieve larger orbits at lower speeds.
Diamond-coated hypotube — eases through tight lesions
The FreedomFlow driveshaft also incorporates an innovative diamond-coated hypotube at the tip of the driveshaft, which helps ease the tip through tight blockages and improves access into areas even smaller than the sphere diameter.

FreedomFlow® Peripheral Guidewire
CAUTION: Federal (USA) law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
INDICATIONS FOR USE: The Cardio Flow FreedomFlow® Orbital Atherectomy Peripheral Platform is indicated for use as therapy in patients with occlusive atherosclerotic disease in peripheral arteries. The therapy is intended for patients who are acceptable candidates for percutaneous transluminal atherectomy.
