November 9, 2016 — Merit Medical Systems Inc. announced that it has received 510(k) clearance for the SwiftNINJA Steerable Microcatheter. The clearance covers peripheral and coronary applications. With the exception of Japan, Merit has global distribution rights for the SwiftNINJA.

The SwiftNINJA Steerable Microcatheter is a straight-tip cathter that articulates up to 180 degrees in opposing directions to rapidly select the most challenging vascular ostium. It offers 3-D steering with one-handed operation and is designed to reach otherwise inaccessible areas.

The device is scheduled to be launched simultaneously with the Corvocet Biopsy System, which also received 510(k) clearance recently.
