High-Pressure Balloon Designed for Challenging Peripheral Lesions


January 20, 2010

The balloon material of the REEF HP PTA Balloon Catheter was created for use in peripheral high-pressure dilatation procedures. It can treat a range of peripheral lesions, including dialysis patients whose arteriovenous shunts often create fibrous and hard-to-dilate lesions.

The REEF HP balloon is made from Flexitec XF, an extremely durable material with a large working pressure range of up to 22 atm. The low compliant balloon offers a uniform dilatation force and strong shape retention to dilate resistive lesions with greater stability and success. Its low-profile design enables consistent delivery and ease of crossability. The balloon is available in a wide range of sizes, from diameters of 4-8 mm and lengths of 20-80 mm.

The balloon received FDA 510(k) clearance in January 2010.
