Two-Lumen Catheter for Percutaneous Cardiology


August 30, 2006

The Twin-Pass is a two-lumen catheter designed to be used in percutaneous cardiology and radiology procedures, in conjunction with steerable guide wires, to access discrete regions of the coronary and peripheral arterial vasculature and for use during procedures utilizing two guide wires.

The catheter features two 0.014-inch lumens in one low-profile support catheter. The rapid exchange lumen can be used for catheter placement over an existing 0.014-inch guide wire and has a 1.9F distal tip. The separate OTW lumen can then be used to confirm position and deliver a second wire without removal of the original wire. Hydrophilic coating on the distal 20cm of the catheter allows lubricious delivery. Twin-Pass is available in both the U.S. and Europe.
