Next-Generation FoxCross PTA Catheter Aimed at PAD

The FoxCross PTA Catheter is a next-generation .035 balloon dilatation catheter is used to open peripheral arteries that have become blocked with plaque. The system is available in a wide variety of diameters (3-14 mm), balloon lengths (20-120 mm), and catheter lengths (50 cm, 80 cm and 135 cm) on an over-the-wire delivery platform.

The catheter is said to be highly-deliverable and offers superb crossability and impressive deflation times.

FoxCross is a highly deliverable balloon dilatation catheter designed to optimize
the treatment of patients with PAD during angioplasty procedures. It incorporates technological advancements such as the JETCOAT coating that allows for smooth device movement and enhanced deliverability, streamlined tip and crossing profile for accessing and treating challenging lesions, and a dual-lumen shaft with large, crescent-shaped contrast lumen for rapid inflation/deflation

The FoxCross released in the United States in May 2009.
