Pantera ProWorkhorse Coronary Balloon
Indicated for dilatation of coronary artery or bypass graft stenosis.* Challenging lesions require a versatile workhorse balloon. Whether it's a tight lesion or a complex bifurcation, Pantera Pro offers the performance to reach, cross and dilate. *Indication: For balloon dilatation of the stenotic portion of a coronary artery or bypass graft stenosis for the purpose of improving myocardial perfusion.
- Outstanding crossability in tight lesions1
- 43% less friction2 during kissing balloon technique
- 38% more push3 to reach target lesion
Outstanding Crossability in Tight Lesions1
The proprietary balloon material for small sizes enables slim balloon shoulders while maintaining durability. Coupled with hydrophilic balloon coating, Pantera Pro excels in tight lesions.
43% Less Friction2 during Kissing Balloon Technique
The reduced distal shaft profile lowers friction when using two balloons in a 6 F guiding catheter.
Any combination of two diameters not larger than 3.5 mm within a 6F guiding catheter with a minimal inner diameter of 0.070"/1.78 mm.
38% More Push3 to Reach Target Lesion
BIOTRONIK’s unique Enhanced Force Transmission (EFT) shaft results in excellent pushability by connecting the proximal hypotube directly to the distal guide wire support section.
