REINFORCED INTRODUCER SHEATH SYSTEM/4F, 5F, 6F
INDICATED TO PROVIDE ACCESS TO LOWER LIMB ARTERIES

Minimally-invasive intervention allows for optimal treatment of patients with complex lower limb disease. BIOTRONIK were the first to offer lower limb treatment through a 4F reinforced introducer sheath combined with a 4F and 0.018" guide wire. The 4F reinforced introducer sheath is compatible balloon catheters and self-expanding stent systems up to 200 mm in length.


KEY FACTS
  • Coil reinforced sheath for kink and deformation resistance
  • Radiopaque sheath marker to provide optimal radiopacity
  • Hydrophobic coated sheath1 for easy insertion
  • Smooth tapered sheath and dilator tip

Product Details

The Complete 4F & 6F Solutions

The availability of 4, 5 and 6 F reinforced introducer sheaths allows a tailored access approach. The BIOTRONIK 6 F solutions portfolio enables treatment with our 6 F reinforced introducer sheath
while utilizing our trusted 6 F compatible balloon catheters and self-expanding stent systems, both up to 200 mm in length.


Coil Reinforced Sheath

The polymer embedded, stainless steel coil shaft provides flexibility and excellent kink and deformation resistance. The non-ovaling characteristic combined with a friction lowering PTFE liner enables devices to pass
through tight anatomical curves more easily.


Hydrophobic Coated Sheath1 for Easy Insertion

As best in class insertion performance2 due to the hydrophobic sheath coating in combination with the smooth tapered sheath and dilator tip.


Valve

The premounted removable hemostatic valve on the 5 and 6F introducer sheaths allows thrombus aspiration.

Smooth Tapered Tip and Superb Sheath Tip Visibility

The sheath and dilator have a smooth tapered tip and an atraumatic tip design for ease of insertion.
The platinum alloy marker band provides superb tip radiopacity under fluoroscopic imaging.
