Catheter Delivers Embolics, Contrast Media in Difficult to Access Vessels

April 13, 2010 – A catheter designed to deliver embolic materials and radiopaque media to selected sites in visceral vascular territories recently gained FDA clearance. The Gandras Visci-G is a 5 French, 75 cm catheter with a primary curve and a flexible 1 cm tip, making it useful for precise and stable placement in renal, mesenteric or abdominal catheterization procedures.

The tight primary curve allows easy access of bilateral arteries through a single 5 French arterial introducer, and standard microcatheters can then be delivered through the catheter to access distal regions. It can be used in clinical cases such as gastointestinal hemorrhages, endograft leaks, and anytime operators are having difficulty seating a catheter in an artery that braches off the aorta.

The new Gandras Visci-G is available worldwide.
