January 19, 2007

Jan. 19, 2007 — A new introducer sheath designed specifically for superficial access procedures has been introduced by Terumo Interventional Systems, a strategic business unit of medical device manufacturer Terumo Medical Corp.

The latest addition to the company’s line of Pinnacle sheaths, the 4-cm, stiff Pinnacle R/O II HiFlo Introducer Sheath features the brand’s recognized smooth transition that facilitates access to difficult superficial sites that may also be close to the location of a lesion. In addition, a larger diameter side flow tube allows a higher flow rate of fluids.

The Pinnacle R/O II HiFlo also features a radiopaque marker band 5 mm from the tip for enhanced visibility, a laminar flow sheath housing with a 45° side tube take-off to improve flow dynamics, and a detachable 3-way stop cock.
