Medtronic Receives Approval for Euphora Semicompliant Balloon Dilation Catheter

Medtronic received regulatory approval and is launching in the EU its Euphora semicompliant balloon dilation catheter. The device allows for a pre-dilation procedure that can be beneficial in determining the nature of the lesion, helping to decide on which stent to use and preparing the area for stenting.

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.
