Valvuloplasty Catheter (PTV)
The Mullins-X™ dilatation catheter is the specialist when it comes to indications calling for extremly high pressure. It is ideal for stents placement and for stent redilatatation procedures.
Tyshak® catheters are suitable for percutaneous transluminal valvuloplasty (PTV) and pre-dilatation in transcatheter heart-valve replacement procedures. The extremely low profile is compatible with the smallest introducer systems. The balloon is very slim with a correspondingly flexible catheter tip.
The catheter is suitable for percutaneous transluminal valvuloplasty (PTV) and pre-dilatation in transcatheter heart-valve replacement procedures. Z-MED™ catheters are high-pressure balloons with optimised maximum pressures specifically devised for adults and children. They are particularly suitable for use in cases of permanent stenosis. NEW! Our new Z-MED™ and Z-MED™ II balloon catheters -with a shaft size of 9 FR and larger- feature much faster inflation and deflations times. New average times are faster up to 75 % than the old inflation and deflation times.* At the same time Z-MED™ and Z-MED™ II balloon catheters are indicated for three procedures: For Percutaneous Transluminal Valvuloplasty (PTV) of the pulmonary, aortic and mitral valve. *For instance: a 22 mm Ø balloon catheter has an inflation time of 1 sec. and a deflation time of 1.6 sec. Note: Inflation and deflation time will vary depending on the length of the balloon.
NuCLEUS™ and Tyshak NuCLEUS™ are suitable for percutaneous transluminal valvuloplasty (PTV) and pre-dilatation in transcatheter heart-valve replacement procedures. The innovative balloon design enables accurate positioning prior to and during inflation. NuCLEUS™ sizes start from 10 mm and Tyshak NuCLEUS sizes already begin with 4 mm. Together they cover the complete range, from small children (> 3 kg) up to adults.
The COEfficient™ Pediatric Valvuloplasty catheter is engineered for maximum steering and tracking. The coaxial shaft design provides enhanced column strength and pushability combined with a flexible distal tip for optimum steerability. The distinguishing feature of this high-pressure balloon catheter is its extremely slim profile. It can be used with even the smallest introducer sheaths (4–7 FR at 13–7 ATM).
