Turbo-Tandem Atherectomy System Uses Laser Technology

 

July 10, 2009

Spectranetics' Turbo-Tandem is a single-use, disposable laser atherectomy device indicated for the infrainguinal arteries.

The Turbo-Tandem System is comprised of two integrated devices, a 7 French laser guide catheter in combination with a 2 mm excimer laser ablation catheter. The Turbo-Tandem is designed to perform atherectomy and ablation of plaque in arterial lesions above the knee, primarily within the superficial femoral and popliteal arteries. The angled ramp at the tip of the guide catheter allows the physician circumferential guidance and positioning of the laser catheter within the vessel, and push-button control greatly simplifies use of the Turbo-Tandem for repeated passes through the vessel.
