German medical device company Biotronik has launched its Passeo-35 0.035” OTW PTA balloon line extension and the Passeo-35 HP 0.035” high pressure PTA (percutaneous transluminal angioplasty) balloon.
Available in lengths of up to 200mm and diameters from 3-7mm, the Paseo-35 0.035" OTW PTA balloon allows clinicians to dilate longer disease segments in lower limb vessels, while reducing balloon inflations.
With a measurement of 7mmx200mm, the Passeo-35 self-expanding stent allows balloon compatibility with a 5F introducer sheath and it has extremely low and excellent secondary profiles.
Available in lengths from 20-100mm and diameters from 3-12mm, the Passeo-35 HP high pressure PTA balloon is designed for arterio-venous dialysis fistulea application.
The high pressure PTA balloon delivers high-rated burst pressures of up to 27 atmospheres and is intended to treat vessel segments that require high pressure dilatation to efface resistant, often fibrotic stenoses (commonly encountered in arterio-venous access fistulae and grafts).
The company has used highly durable balloon material in the Passeo-35 HP 0.035" high pressure PTA balloon to reduce the risk of vessel straightening and while increasing its strength to dilate resistant lesions.
Biotronik vascular intervention marketing vice president Alexander Uhl noted these latest additions to the company’s unique peripheral intervention portfolio underline its commitment to delivering dedicated, innovative devices in line with the needs and expectations of interventional operators.
"Furthermore, our PTA balloon portfolio is now one of, if not the, strongest and most comprehensive available," Uhl added.
