The Ultrasound Difference

EKOS is a minimally invasive system for dissolving thrombus. The ultrasonic core generates an acoustic field which greatly accelerates lytic dispersion by driving the drug deeper into the clot and unwinding the fibrin to expose plasminogen receptor sites.
Acoustic Pulse

 

 

EKOS' targeted ultrasound waves accelerate thrombus dissolution by unwinding the fibrin matrix.1

Before EKOS Ultrasound
Tightly wound fibrin prevents lytic from reaching receptor sites.

After EKOS Ultrasound
Ultrasonic energy thins fibrinand exposes receptor sites.
