Low-Profile Support Catheters Access Discreet Regions

 

August 30, 2006

For wire support and exchange in complex interventions, the Skyway OTW and RX support catheters are intended to be used in conjunction with steerable guide wires in order to access discreet regions of the arterial and coronary vasculature.

The Skyway OTW also may be used to subselectively infuse/deliver therapeutic agents. These catheters provide 1.9F ultra low-profile wire support for easy lesion entry and crossing with a hydrophilic coating on the distal 20cm to glide through tortuous anatomy. The Skyway RX catheter features a rapid exchange design that allows delivery over an in-place 180cm guide wire for wire support. Its wire exchange allows exchange of the guide wire without wire extension.
