Dr. Sultan is a consultant vascular and endovascular surgeon who has been studying the ArtAssist® device in a clinical setting at his practice in Galway, Ireland.
An excerpt from his presentation at the 2009 Veith Symposium in New York (note that this is before the final results of this ongoing study were released):
Art-Assist SCBD is a valuable tool in the armamentarium for dealing with CLI patients with un-reconstructable PVD. It gives superior limb salvage, ameliorates amputation free survival, enhances ulcer healing rates, reduces length of hospital stay and provides rapid relief of rest pain without any intervention in patients with limited life expectancy.
On a related note, Dr. Sultan’s website features a short video about the ArtAssist® device.
For those in Ireland, the ArtAssist® device is distributed by Deprimo, Ltd. (http://deprimo.ie/)
