0.035 OTW Paclitaxel drug-releasing technology

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.


 

 

Semicompliant 0.035 OTW PTA-Balloon Dilatation Catheter

Our robust dual-lumen shaft balloon catheter with controlled compliance in diameters 5 to 10 mm and 40 to 200 mm length. Our 2-Lumen shaft has an inflation- and a guidewire lumen. Due to the balance between good trackability and pushability properties the catheter system as well owns short inflation- and deflation times.
