Fast Deflation Times

Passeo-143 deflates:

  • 73% faster than Amphirion Deep
  • 36% faster than Coyote
  • 24% faster than NanoCross

Patchwork coating designed to facilitate crossing

The tri-fold balloon that is hydrophilically coated in a folded state,
exposing uncoated balloon sections when inflated. This is intended to facilitate crossing while
minimizing slippage during inflation.

Rapid Deflation Time

A large balloon inflation/deflation lumen is possible because of its coaxial catheter shaft design. The large lumen enables contrast media solution to flow more quickly to and from the balloon.

High Pushability and Flexibility4

Pushability is made possible by the novel catheter shaft design,
which features a unique stiffening wire in the proximal shaft of the catheter. This is combined with a low profile distal shaft designed for flexibility in small, tortuous vessels.

Ordering Information



1 BIOTRONIK data on file (IIB report 65/2012)

2 vs. Amphirion Deep

3 Volume adjustment: a 3x120 mm contains 15% less contrast media volume of the 3x140 mm balloon. The measured deflation time of a 3mm x 140 mm balloon was adjusted by 15% to make a direct comparison. Therefore, the measured deflation time of 32% can be reduced by 15%, resulting in a volume-corrected deflation time of 27%.
