Under the terms of this agreement, the Russian Cardiovascular Catheter company is licensed to use the proprietary Hydromer®      hydrophilic coating on their PTCA Microcatheters.  Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) catheters are used in minimally invasive procedures to open up blocked coronary arteries.
