High Pressure PTA Balloon/0.035"/OTW
Indicated for use in percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of the femoral, iliac and renal arteries, and for the treatment of obstructive lesions of native or synthetic arterio-venous dialysis fistulae. Arterio-venous Dialysis Fistulae commonly require high pressure dilatation1 due to fibrotic-like morphology of these hemodialysis shunts.
- Up to 27 atm to dilate resistant lesions in complex anatomy
- 96% success rate dilating arterio-venous dialysis fistulae2
- Coaxial catheter shaft designed for flexibility and rapid balloon deflation
- Flexible and conformable to minimize vessel straightening
Secure High-Pressure Fitting
One-piece molded hub strong enough to withstand up to 45 atm.3 (Warning: never inflate balloon above recommened RBP)
Coaxial catheter shaft design
Coaxial catheter shaft is designed to offer advanced flexibility at high strength while supporting rapid balloon deflation. The coaxial design allows for a large lumen to enable contrast media solution to flow more quickly to and from the balloon.
Balloon re-wrap tool, pre-loaded on shaft facilitating re-insertion through sheath during the procedure.
Minimizing Vessel Straightening
Proprietary balloon technology designed for conformability and flexibility, delivering a vessel-friendly solution with an impressively high RBP of up to 27 atm, dilating resistant lesions in complex anatomies. Image shows a deployed balloon in silicone tubing.4
Two radiopaque markers at balloon shoulders enable precise balloon positioning.
