New Aspiration Catheter Released in United States

March 25, 2011 – A new, next-generation aspiration catheter has been introduced in the United States. The Fetch 2 Catheter, by Medrad Interventional, features a flexible, variable pitch coiled shaft for improved kink resistance.

Other performance enhancements include an enhanced distal radiopaque marker band for improved visibility and positioning marker bands to minimize the need for fluoroscopy. For operator convenience, the catheter also provides dual syringes and filter baskets with a more accessible, clear tray package. The defining features of the earlier model have been retained, such as low 4.2 French catheter profile and unique convex-cut distal opening.
