  • "While we are pleased to receive this regulatory clearance, it comes as our Board continues its evaluation of strategic alternatives to optimize our Company's path forward in the current challenging economic environment," said Will McGuire, Ra Medical Systems CEO.
  • "As we have previously announced, the DABRA 2.0 catheter represents an interim step in our work to develop a guidewire-compatible version of the DABRA catheter. At this time, we have no plans to commercialize the DABRA 2.0," he added.
