AngioDynamics Brings Peripheral PTA Catheter to U.S.

May 1, 2007 — AngioDynamics Inc. announced today the introduction of its Profiler Balloon Dilatation Catheter in the U.S. market. The new low profile balloon catheter is indicated for general percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of the iliac, femoral, and renal arteries and for the treatment of obstructive lesions of native or synthetic arteriovenous dialysis fistulae.

"The development of low profile PTA balloon technology allows physicians to perform angioplasty in a less invasive manner, which improves the overall quality of patient care," said Dr. John Aruny, associate professor and co-chief, Vascular and Interventional Radiology at Yale University School of Medicine. "This device, with its low profile configuration, is an excellent example of a new technology that limits the size of the introducer sheath to 5F while allowing inflation diameters up to 8mm. The ability to work through smaller sheaths will directly contribute to lessening puncture site morbidity," he added.

AngioDynamics' Profiler offers a broad range of low profile PTA balloons, with configurations of up to 8mm x 4cm balloons compatible with 5F sheaths, which provide access to small vessels, tortuous anatomy, and tight stenotic lesions. Additionally, the Profiler family offers a line of 9mm and 10mm balloons that are compatible with a 6F sheath.
