Vascular Intervention // Coronary
Drug-Coated Balloon Catheter

Pantera® Lux®
Clinically proven. Best in class crossability.

Clinically proven solution for in-stent-restenosis and further indications

Lux® coating technology for rapid drug absorption

Excellent deliverability

Clinically proven solution for in-stent-restenosis and further indications1-12

Pantera Lux has proven efficacy and safety in multiple clinical trials investigating coronary drug-coated balloons for various implant-free treatment options:1-10

Lux®coating technology for rapid drug absorption

The Lux coating technology blends paclitaxel with BTHC, a rapidly metabolized, safe and biocompatible excipient, thus improving bioavailability at the target site.14

Prolonged tissue retention at the target site14, 15

Pig coronary artery Paclitaxel tissue concentrations

Excellent deliverability

Pantera Lux, with its lowest crossing profile, provides better pushability and easier crossability.16

Lowest crossing profile16

Pantera Lux has a 44% smaller crossing profile.

Better pushability16

136% more force transmitted from hub to distal tip.

Best in class crossability16

82% less force needed to cross lesions.

Pantera® Lux®
Indicated for balloon dilatation for in-stent restenosis, de-novo lesions, acute or impending vascular occlusion and treatment of small vessel disease.*
