Terumo Expands its Pinnacle R/O II Radiopaque Marker Introducer Sheaths

June 25, 2009 – Terumo Interventional Systems today announced the expansion of its Pinnacle R/O II Radiopaque Marker Introducer Sheaths to provide a broader selection of marker band sheath sizes for vascular access, extending the range of interventional procedures that can be performed.

The Pinnacle R/O II Radiopaque Marker Introducer Sheaths are now available in 4 French through 9 French, each in 6 cm, 10 cm and 25 cm lengths. The 10 cm and 25 cm are appropriate for interventional procedures (e.g. balloon and stent) or with ipsilateral approaches. The 6 cm sheath can be used for superficial access sites. The 6 cm and 10 cm in 4 through 9 French sizes are also available with 0.038-inch mini guide wires (0.035-inch wire with 4 French sizes).

The Pinnacle R/O II enables physicians to know the exact sheath tip location during a procedure. Its long gradual taper on the dilator and sheath leads to easier insertion with less force, which may result in reduced trauma and reduced complications. Additionally, the Pinnacle R/O II maintains kink resistance, which reduces the need for a second sheath, the company said.
