REINFORCED INTRODUCER SHEATH SYSTEM/4F, 5F, 6F
Indicated to provide access to lower limb arteries. Minimally-invasive intervention allows for optimal treatment of patients with complex lower limb disease. BIOTRONIK was first to offer lower limb treatment through a 4F reinforced introducer sheath combined with a 4F and 0.018" guide wire, compatible balloon catheters and self-expanding stent systems up to 200 mm in length.
- Coil reinforced sheath for kink and deformation resistance
- Radiopaque sheath marker to provide optimal radiopacity
- Hydrophobic coated sheath1 for easy insertion
- Smooth tapered sheath and dilator tip
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 more easily pass through tight anatomical curves.
The Complete Solution
The availability of 4F, 5F and 6F reinforced introducer sheaths allows a tailored access approach. The BIOTRONIK 6F Solutions portfolio enables treatment through our 6F reinforced introducer sheath while utilizing our trusted 6F compatible balloon catheters and self expanding stent systems, both up to 200 mm in length.
Hydrophobic Coated Sheath1 for Easy Insertion
As best in class insertion performance2 due to the hydrophobic sheath coating in combination with the smooth tapered sheath and dilator tip.
The premounted removable hemostatic valve on the 5F and 6F introducer sheaths allows thrombus aspiration.
Smooth Tapered Tip and Superb Sheath Tip Visibility
The sheath and dilator have a smooth tapered tip and an atraumatic tip design for ease of insertion.
The platinum alloy marker band provides superb tip radiopacity under fluoroscopic imaging.
