In 2009, the GuideLiner Catheter revolutionized the concept of guide extension, creating new possibilities in interventional cardiology. Now in its third generation, the GuideLiner V3 Catheter continues to build on a history of innovation and performance — one that has been demonstrated with more than half a million catheters in cath labs around the world.
Teleflex also offers a family of Turnpike Catheters. These contain a robust multi-layer shaft that provides impressive flexibility, torque and tracking over a 0.014” guidewire in complex coronary and peripheral interventions. The unique five-layer composite shaft provides an ideal combination of flexibility and torque response to help navigate through complex anatomy while the outer polymer layer paired with a 60 cm distal hydrophilic coating facilitates smooth catheter delivery. This portfolio consists of the Turnpike Catheter (standard version), the Turnpike Spiral Catheter, the Turnpike Gold Catheter, and the Turnpike LP Catheter. Each catheter configuration contains a specific design element to address various clinical challenges in complex procedures
This year, Teleflex acquired two well-known PTCA balloon catheters. The Chocolate XD PTCA Balloon Catheter is a specialty angioplasty balloon, used in the pre-dilatation and treatment of coronary lesions. The balloon’s proprietary nitinol constraining structure creates “pillows” and “grooves” that are designed to provide controlled dilatation while minimizing vessel wall trauma.
The Glider PTCA Balloon Catheter is a semi-compliant balloon with a skived tip and low entry profile. The tip design, coupled with hydrophilic coating and an innovative, torqueable shaft, allows for precise tip orientation for use in crossing complex lesions and stent struts.
