Oceanus 14 Pro PTA Balloon Catheter Receives CE Mark Approval

Device approved to dilate stenoses in femoral, popliteal and infrapopliteal arteries

December 29, 2017 — iVascular announced the release of the new Oceanus 14 Pro percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) balloon catheter following CE Mark approval. The device was approved to dilate stenoses in femoral, popliteal and infrapopliteal arteries, and to treat obstructive lesions in arteriovenous dialysis fistulae.

Oceanus 14 Pro features what the company calls an exceptional crossing profile and size range, including ultra-small diameters (1.25mm and 1.5mm) and lengths (10mm and 15mm). It is the only PTA catheter that adapts its number and type of radiopaque markers for enhanced visibility, flexibility and trackability:

  • One tungsten radiopaque marker for the smallest and shortest balloons;
  • Two tungsten radiopaque markers for smaller diameters and lengths over 20mm; and
  • Two metallic radiopaque markers for other references.
