Covidien Introduces RX Balloon Engineered for Below the Knee

June 4, 2013

Covidien recently introduced its RapidCross 0.014-inch Rapid Exchange Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty (PTA) Balloon, which offers rapid exchange (RX) convenience with kink-resistant pushability for below-the-knee (BTK) interventions.

The RapidCross balloon catheter is not a coronary device retrofitted for BTK. Every detail, from the low-profile tip to the robust RX port to the long catheter length, was thoughtfully designed for exceptional performance BTK, according to Covidien.

RapidCross was introduced in June 2013.
