XO Score is a novel scoring sheath that works by fitting over physician selected off-the-shelf PTA balloons to enable scoring and cutting vessel preparation. The unique balloon expandable scoring element enables a single XO Score device to work with a large range of balloon diameters and lengths for in-procedure adaptability. XO Score has been used successfully to dilate calcified and fibrous lesions during a multi-site, multi-user limited market release.

The device is currently indicated for treatment of peripheral vascular stenosis including hemodialysis fistulas and grafts.
