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.
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.
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 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).
