Infiniti Medical proudly acknowledges the recent publication of an independent pioneering study, ‘Transthoracic Echocardiographically-Guided Interventional Cardiac Procedures in the Dog.’


Amplatz Canine Ductal Occluder (ACDO)

The study was published in the Journal of Veterinary Cardiology (2012) 14, 431-444 and authored by leading veterinarians including Domenico Caivano, Francesco Birettoni, Alessandro Fruganti, Mark Rishniw, Patrizia Knafelz, N. Sydney Moïse, and Francesco Porciello. This groundbreaking study further highlights the successful utilization of Infiniti’s Amplatz Canine Ductal Occluder (ACDO) in canine cardiac procedures.

The study’s primary focus was to assess the efficacy of transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) in guiding transcatheter procedures for pulmonic stenosis (PS) and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in a series of 26 dogs. Specifically, the research centered around the use of Infiniti’s ACDO, designed precisely for safe and effective occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus in veterinary patients.

In summary, this collaborative effort led by these veterinary experts underlines the significant contribution of Infiniti’s ACDO in transforming transcatheter procedures for canine cardiac conditions. The study’s findings, driven by the expertise of these respected professionals, signify a paradigm shift towards safer, more accessible alternatives to traditional methods.
