Semi compliant balloon dilatation catheter
The Rapid Exchange (RX) balloon catheter Xperience pro, is designed to dilate the stenotic portion of a coronary artery or bypass graft, with the aim of improving myocardial perfusion. The body of the catheter features a combination of a single lumen as proximal shaft and a coaxial double lumen as distal shaft. The single lumen consists of a hypotube that provides high pushability to the catheter and allows contrast medium passage from the lure connector to the balloon.
The coaxial double lumen has two functions-Inner lumen for guidewire passage and outer lumen for balloon in-deflation, directly connected to the hypotube. At the distal end of the catheter is the balloon, or segment inflatable of known diameter and length. The protective covering of the balloon is a peelable sheath. At the proximal end of the catheter there is the hub, to which different accessories can be attached. The distal part of the catheter is coated with a durable hydrophilic coating (HYDRAX) that minimizes friction and improves catheter trackability.
