Some features of the device:

  • Delivery system with PowerTrac (TM) technology to provide superior deliverability through tight lesions.
  • Environmentally friendly packaging, a reduced box size that has a smaller footprint on congested shelves and improved product labeling for fast readability to improve efficiency in the cath lab.
  • Significantly improved insertion and retraction force to enhance navigation to lesion sites when using the Kissing Balloon Technique, a method for treating bifurcated lesions.
  • Ultra-slim balloon material, a tapered proprietary inner shaft design and an optimized mini-wrap to reduce the wall thickness of the balloon and contribute to the extremely low crossing profile.
