Ranger™, for consistent and predictable drug delivery*

The Challenge

During the PTA procedure, the coating on drug coated balloons can be fragile and unstable*. This may result in the drug and excipient flacking off the balloon before reaching the lesion. As a consequence, the actual drug delivery to the lesion may be non-homogeneous and inconsistent**.

The Solution

We developed TransPax™, a proprietary coating technology designed to optimize the drug coating integrity and efficiently deliver the drug to the tissue*. A loading tool and Sterling™ balloon also contribute to coating integrity, deliverability and intuitive use1. With these innovations the Ranger™ DCB provides a more consistent and predictable treatment option*.

Drug Coating integrity
The Ranger™ coating technology (TransPax coating, a proprietary formulation of Paclitaxel) is designed to deliver a therapeutic drug dose consistently and efficiently to the lesion**. Much less drug is lost distally which provides the peace of mind of a predictable drug delivery*.

Sterling Sterling

Intuitive use and deliverability
The pushability and trackability1 of the SterlingTM1 balloon platform enables navigation through significantly challenging anatomies1. RangerTM is also equipped with a loading tool that protects the drug coating while handling and pushing through the introducer.
