Vascular Intervention

Our broad range of products work to restore blood flow to vessels of the heart (coronary) and body (peripheral) that are narrowed or blocked. We produce a full range of stent systems, balloon catheters and guide wires for patients with coronary and peripheral artery disease.

BIOTRONIK is a true innovator in the field, having introduced Pulsar, the world's first 4 F-compatible stent for treating long lesions, in 2009 and Orsiro, the industry's first hybrid drug-eluting stent, in 2011. Over the years our wide range of vascular intervention innovations include Orsiro DES, Resorbable Magnesium Scaffold, Drug Coated Balloon Catheters, Multifunctional Catheters and many more. Patient well being is our top priority and has been for 60 years.


Coronary Vascular Intervention

Coronary vascular intervention, also known as coronary intervention or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), is a medical procedure used to treat coronary artery disease (CAD), which is the most common cause of heart disease. This procedure aims to improve blood flow to the heart muscle by opening blocked or narrowed coronary arteries. It is typically performed by cardiologists in a specialized cardiac catheterization lab, commonly referred to as the cath lab.

  • Coronary Drug-Coated Balloon

    Coronary drug-coated balloon catheters are used for the treatment of coronary arteries with simultaneous release of an anti-proliferative drug to the vessel wall.

  • Coronary Balloon Catheters

    Coronary balloon catheters are used for the dilatation of the stenotic portion of a coronary artery or bypass graft stenosis.

  • Coronary Accessories

    Within the CVI Accessories category BIOTRONIK is offering various products for the use during Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (PCI).

  • Coronary Drug Eluting Stent System

    Coronary drug-eluting stent (DES) systems are stents which are pre-mounted on a balloon catheter. DES are used for the treatment of coronary arteries and release an anti-proliferative drug to the vessel wall.

  • Coronary Covered Stent Systems

    Coronary covered stent systems are stents which are pre-mounted on a balloon catheter. The stent is covered by a membrane on its external surface which acts to seal a perforated vessel.

  • Coronary Resorbable Magnesium Scaffold

    Coronary resorbable magnesium scaffolds (RMS) are resorbable implants which are pre-mounted on a balloon catheter. RMS are made of magnesium alloys and used for the treatment of coronary arteries and release an anti-proliferative drug to the vessel wall.

  • Coronary Guide Extension Catheters

    Coronary guide extension catheters are used in conjunction with guiding catheters to access discrete regions of the coronary vasculature and to facilitate placement and exchange of guide wires and other interventional devices. 

  • Coronary Microcatheter

    Coronary microcatheters are used to support guide wires during access of coronary vasculature and allow for exchange of guide wires. Additionally they also provide a conduit for the delivery of diagnostic contrast agents.

  • Coronary Trapping Balloon Catheters

    Coronary trapping balloon catheters are used within the guiding catheter to facilitate interventional device exchange while maintaining wire position in patients undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) procedures. 


    Peripheral Vascular Intervention

    Peripheral vascular intervention (PVI), also known as peripheral artery intervention, encompasses a variety of different minimally invasive percutaneous procedures used to treat peripheral artery disease (PAD). PAD is a condition in which the arteries outside the heart, typically in the legs and feet, become narrowed or blocked usually due to the buildup of plaque. PVI aims to restore blood flow in these peripheral arteries, relieve symptoms, and prevent complications.

    • Peripheral Multifunctional Catheter

      BIOTRONIK's unique multifunctional catheter is intended for percutaneous transluminal interventions in the peripheral vasculature. The device was developed to provide support during access into and to dilate stenoses in femoral, popliteal and infrapopliteal arteries.  

      The Oscar peripheral multifunctional catheter is comprised of three user-adjustable components: 

      • Oscar support catheter with integrated Lock Grip 
      • Oscar extendable dilator 
      • Oscar length-adjustable percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) balloon

    • Peripheral Stent Systems

      Peripheral stent systems are minimally invasive devices used to treat peripheral artery disease (PAD) that requires additional support to maintain vessel patency after insufficient results with percutaenous transluminal angioplasty (PTA). Stents can be self-expanding or balloon-exandable, with unique qualities to each that benefit various clinical presentations.  

    • Peripheral Balloon Catheters

      PTA (Peripheral Transluminal Angioplasty) balloon catheters are minimally invasive devices indicated to dilate stenoses in various peripheral arteries afflicted with peripheral artery disease (PAD).  PTA balloons are designed to be inflated to their indicated diameter to restore blood flow in blocked arteries. 

    • Peripheral Accessories

      Peripheral vascular accessories are crucial components of interventional procedures. These tools are designed to assist healthcare professionals in managing peripheral artery disease (PAD), by assisting in both accessing the artery blockages and helping to achieve closure at the conclusion of the intervention. 


    • Peripheral Drug-Coated Balloon

      Peripheral drug-coated balloons (DCBs) are minimally invasive angioplasty balloons coated in paclitaxel, an anti-proferative drug that is released up dilatation of the balloon within a peripheral artery to treat peripheral artery disease (PAD). Paclitaxel reduces the rate of restenosis and reinterventions, as shown in many clinical trials.
