Balloon catheter engineered to optimize treatment of tight lesions

 

May 14, 2014

May 14, 2014 — OrbusNeich announced the launch of the Sapphire II NC coronary dilatation catheter, a non-compliant balloon catheter engineered to cross tight lesions, outside the United States.

Sapphire II NC’s proprietary balloon processing results in an excellent crossing profile for primary and repeated lesion entry. The enhanced distal Z-Tip with advanced laser welding technology results in “zero” transition between the distal leading tip and conventional steerable guidewires. Sapphire II NC is available in a broad range of sizes, from 1.75 mm to 5 mm, with a catheter working length of 140 cm.

Dr. Toshiya Muramatsu of the Saiseikai Yokohama-City Eastern Hospital in Japan said, “Sapphire II NC with its reduced and improved profile performs well not just as a post but also as a pre dilatation balloon. Robustness and good crossability are very desirable features for a non-compliant balloon."
