OrbusNeich Adds Sapphire NC Coronary Dilatation Catheter to Product Line-Up

July 28, 2008 - OrbusNeich today added the Sapphire NC coronary dilatation non-compliant balloon catheter to its product line-up with the receipt of CE Mark approval.

The Sapphire NC has controlled growth of only 0.6 percent per atmosphere of pressure over the working pressure range for controlled dilatations. Furthermore, it has a high 22 atmospheres rated burst pressure for confident treatment of tough, calcified lesions and for post-stent dilatation.

“Sapphire NC is a reliable, easily deliverable, high performance balloon with assured results when used during percutaneous coronary intervention,” said Huay-Cheem Tan, M.D., of National University Hospital in Singapore.

Sapphire NC combines advanced precision and material engineering technologies to provide optimum reliability and deliverability. The balloon catheter’s HIST (HIgh Speed Tracking) tip enables flexible tracking along the guidewire, while OrbusNeich’s TIFO (Tight Fold) processing results in a slender profile for enhanced crossability through tight lesions. Sapphire NC is available in a wide range of sizes for precise dilatation to match popular stent lengths.

OrbusNeich designs, develops, manufactures and markets innovative medical devices for the treatment of vascular diseases. The company’s product portfolio includes the Genous Bio-engineered R stent, an antibody-coated device that captures a patient’s endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) to accelerate the natural healing process following placement. Other products are stents, balloons and guiding catheters marketed under the names of Blazer, R stent, Scoreflex, Sapphire, Avita, Avita HP, SafeCut, Lumina and Saffron.
