Vascular Solutions Launches EXPRO Elite Snare

August 6, 2008 - Vascular Solutions Inc. recently launched U.S. sales for the EXPRO Elite Snare, a one-piece medical device designed for the retrieval and manipulation of objects located in the cardiovascular system, including coils, balloons, catheters and guide wires.

The launch was made in partnership with Radius Medical Technologies, which developed and manufactures the device.

The EXPRO Elite Snare features an integrated 0.035-inch profile that permits delivery through 0.035-inch lumens of conventional catheters and a cobalt chromium helical loop design for optimal retrieval and manipulation. The loop is encapsulated in a platinum coil to enhance visualization under fluoroscopy. The company said it is highly flexible and torqueable for atraumatic delivery, and has a longer reach than right-angle loops.
