Better Accessibility with Angioplasty Balloon Catheter

A new percutaneous transluminal angioplasty balloon catheter, the Advance ATB PTA Dilatation Catheter by Cook is designed for optimal ease of insertion and pullback into the sheath.
Responding to the needs of physicians performing numerous dilatation procedures, the Advance balloon incorporates an increased lumen size for faster inflation/deflation rates while still providing sufficient rated burst pressure to dilate demanding lesions.
Cook's Ultra-Push shaft creates a strong axial force for enhanced trackability without added stiffness. The balloon's short, tapered tip allows dilatation in confined spaces and increases accessibility within strictured vascular anatomy.
In addition, the Advance balloon maintains constant diameter throughout its working range of pressures. Embedded gold radiopaque markers on the catheter shaft facilitate precise positioning under fluoroscopy.
