NEW YORK, May 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Scott+Scott, Attorneys at Law, LLP ("Scott+Scott"), a national shareholder and consumer rights litigation firm, announces an investigation into Avinger, Inc.

Avinger designs, manufactures, and sells medical devices used to treat patients with peripheral arterial disease.  The Company focuses on introducing products based on its lumivascular platform, which is an intravascular image-guided system.

On January 30, 2015, Avinger held its IPO at $13 per share.  On July 12, 2016, the Company announced second quarter revenue and lowered its sales guidance for 2016 from $25-30 million to $19-23 million, due in part to lower than anticipated sales of the Company's Pantheris device.  On this news, Avinger's stock plunged nearly 40%, from $11.43 per share to $6.89 per share.
