Cook Medical Launches Advance 18LP PTA Balloon Dilatation Catheter

October 22, 2008 - Cook Medical today launched its Advance 18LP Balloon Dilatation Catheter, which has a low crossing profile and small sheath compatibility designed to provide physicians with superior deliverability.

Cook’s Advance 18LP is a .018-inch wire guide compatible PTA balloon intended for use in patients with lesions of the peripheral arteries (including the iliac, renal, popliteal, infrapopliteal, femoral and iliofemoral), as well as obstructive lesions of native or synthetic arterio-venous dialysis fistulae. The new catheter will be an integral part of Cook’s Advance PTA balloon line and will play a major role in Cook’s leg therapies program.

The Advance 18LP has been evaluated by more than 50 physicians globally and features a low profile and rapid deflation time.

With 4 Fr sheath compatibility through 7 mm diameters, Advance 18LP has the smallest sheath compatibility of any .018-inch compatible balloon currently available in North America. The device utilizes advanced thermal setting of the balloon folds for improved rewrap and sheath pull-back. A unique double-lumen shaft construction using optimized nylon-blend material reduces balloon inflation/deflation time and improves pushability while maintaining kink resistance, the company said.
