Reinforced Introducer Sheath System
Coil reinforced sheath
The polymer embedded stainless steel coil shaft provides flexibility and excellent kink and deformation resistance.
The non-ovaling characteristic combined with its friction lowering PTFE liner enables devices to easily pass through tight anatomical curves.
Smooth tapered sheath and dilator tip
The sheath and dilator have a smooth tapered tip and an atraumatic tip design for ease of insertion.
Hydrophobic coated sheath1
Best in class insertion performance2 due to the hydrophobic sheath coating in combination with the smooth tapered sheath and dilator tip.
Radiopaque sheath marker
The platinum alloy marker band provides superb tip radiopacity under fluoroscopic imaging.3
Indicated to provide access into the femoral, popliteal and infrapopliteal arteries.*
