The Arrow GPSCath Balloon Dilatation Catheters is designed for use with 0.014-inch guidewires and in 150-cm length. These products enable a variety of peripheral vascular procedures to be performed below the knee with one dual function catheter, potentially reducing procedure time, radiation dosage and expense for both patients and medical professionals.

The Arrow GPSCath Balloon Dilatation Catheter is the first dual functional balloon dilatation catheter that combines angioplasty with the proprietary VisioValve Injection System. This combination enables physicians to perform peripheral below the knee angioplasty and inject physician-selected fluids, such as contrast media, while maintaining guide wire position.

The catheters received FDA approval in July 2014.
