BD Launches of Halo One Thin-Walled Guiding Sheath

New thin-walled guiding sheath minimizes the size of the arteriotomy, which can help to reduce access site complications
 

BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company, and Bard) launched the Halo One Thin-Walled Guiding Sheath, designed to perform as both a guiding sheath and an introducer sheath, for use in peripheral arterial and venous procedures requiring percutaneous introduction of intravascular devices.

June 8, 2020 – BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) launched the Halo One Thin-Walled Guiding Sheath, designed to perform as both a guiding sheath and an introducer sheath, for use in peripheral arterial and venous procedures requiring percutaneous introduction of intravascular devices.

The Halo One Thin-Walled Guiding Sheath consists of a thin-walled (1 French wall thickness) sheath made from braided single-lumen tubing, fitted with a female luer hub at the proximal end and a formed atraumatic distal tip. The thin-walled design reduces the size of the arteriotomy compared to standard sheaths of equivalent French size, which is designed to help minimize access site complications. 

The sheath’s broad size offering provides the only thin-walled sheath with lengths suitable for distal peripheral intervention as well as sizes for alternative approaches such as tibiopedal or radial access sites. 

A stainless-steel braid construction fortifies the design for extra support, and benchtop testing of comparable 5 French sizes, showed that Halo One Thin-Walled Guiding Sheath demonstrated 107 percent higher compression resistance, four times better kink resistance, and 100 percent smoother tip transitions (measuring dilator to sheath transition) than a leading competitive thin-walled sheath. The guiding sheath provides the versatility to fit physicians’ everyday needs with a broad size offering that includes 4, 5 and 6 French sizes with shaft lengths of 10 and 25 cm. Additionally, shaft lengths of 45, 70 and 90 cm are available for 4 and 5 French sizes.

“Access site complications occur in up to 11 percent of peripheral vascular interventions,” said JD Meler, M.D., vice president for medical and clinical affairs at BD. “A low profile guiding sheath that is available in lengths suitable for distal peripheral interventions and with a design that can help to reduce access site complications, which have been shown to increase hospital length of stay and costs, is a meaningful addition to our interventional suite of products.”
