Vascular Tissue Ablation

Glass fibers are being used more and more in existing and new treatments to deliver laser power for targeted tissue ablation. Whether your application is endovenous laser treatment (EVLT), or cutting edge treatments in and around the heart, OFS HCS® fibers have successfully delivered controlled powers and wavelengths for years – to ­ablate tissue in the cardiac region and in the peripheral vascular system.

Vascular Imaging

OFS offers optical fibers for optical coherence tomography (OCT), ultrasound, photoacoustic imaging, and other imaging modalities. Custom preform manufacturing capabilities give OFS the ability to provide a wide range of custom fibers, including select cutoffs, ­numerical apertures, and biocompatible coating and cladding materials. OFS has years of experience optimizing designs to achieve performance requirements needed for highest resolution images for emerging technologies such as: OCT, photoacoustic imaging, and 3D sensing.

The medical industry requires controlled, sterile environments to manufacture the highest quality optical fibers. The OFS facilities for medical manufacturing with our medical and quality certifications ensure optimal performance from our fibers and assemblies. OFS robust quality management system gives original equipment manufacturers and end users peace of mind.
