Wider Lumen Now Available in Twin-Pass Catheter


January 23, 2007

Jan. 23, 2007 — Vascular Solutions announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA to begin marketing its new 023 version of the Twin-Pass dual access catheter, and the company says it plans to launch the device immediately through its direct U.S. sales force.

Expanding on the original two-lumen catheter launched last January, the new version offers a larger, 0.023-inch lumen diameter that allows the Twin-Pass 023 catheter to measure intra-arterial pressures and deliver specialty guide wires into the distal vasculature.
