Catheter Uses Corkscrew Design to Cross Lesions


March 24, 2010

A new and improved design of the original Gopher catheter, the Gopher Gold is designed for use when treating coronary and peripheral stenoses over an existing in-place 0.014-inch guide wire. The catheter combines a highly torqueable, braided backbone with a 3 French, highly radiopaque gold-plated distal tip, resulting in a catheter that can pull itself across a stenoses when rotated by the operator in a clockwise direction.
