014 Paclitaxel Eluting Peripheral Dilatation Catheter

Paclitaxel prevents restenosis by blocking proper microtubal formation, thus it inhibits cell division and migration. It inhibits inflammatory processes. After balloon dilatation, injuries to the arterial wall stimulate inflammatory reaction, and the excretion of growth factors occurs as an important process along with the onset of cell division and the migration of smooth muscle cells. Paclitaxel inhibits platelet derived growth factor (PDGF) mediated vascular smooth muscle cell migration to the intima. Paclitaxel also inhibits extracellular matrix secretion and breakdown.

Non-Compliant 0.014"OTW PTA Dilatation Catheter

The PTA Balloon Catheter is a high performance balloon catheter for peripheral indication. The device features an ultra-low profile, semi-compliant balloon combined with a low profile tip.

The outer lumen is used for balloon inflation and the inner lumen received a guidewire Ø 0.014" to facilitate the advancement of the catheter.



> Peripheral Angioplasty

Guide wires are used as a guide rail for probing and a subsequent catheter insertion during interventions in the peripheral vascular system that are performed on the basis of the Seldinger technique. Other catheter systems also use guide wires for insertion, both into arterial and into venous vessels. Arterial access is possible either via the femoral artery (arteria femoralis) or via the brachial artery (arteria brachialis). Exemplary indications are: PTA, intravascular, hemodynamic catheters or ports.

SYNLAS offers most suitable guide wires for different catheter systems.
