The Archimedes Screw is a highly-efficient pump that has been used for centuries in a broad range of applications.  A simple Archimedes Screw consists of a cylindrical screw that is located inside a hollow pipe.  When the lower end of the screw comes in contact with a material and is turned, it collects an amount of the material and cycles it up within the hollow pipe as the shaft is rotated. When the material reaches the top, it is emptied. With the Phoenix Atherectomy System, as the front-cutting element removes and collects diseased material, an Archimedes Screw within the catheter actively and continually conveys the excised material along the internal length of the catheter safely into a collection bag outside the patient.
