  • Allows for use of two MonorailTM catheters in a 6 F
    guide catheter and two Over-the-Wire catheters in an 8 F guide catheter3

Hydrophilic coating

  • Reduced frictional force on the catheter shaft

Reduced crossing profile4

  • 0.031" (0.787 mm) crossing profile

Bi-Segment™ inner shaft design

  • Designed for maximum deliverability
  • Both stiff and flexible segments to enhance pushability and trackability

Slope ™ outer shaft

  • One piece outer shaft provides a seamless transition
  • Designed to optimize pushability
  • Slope outer shaft on OTW devices

Non-compliant balloon material

  • Designed for less balloon growth and increased rated
    burst pressure
  • Unique blend of balloon materials provides excellent

Platinum iridium marker bands

  • Provides optimal radiopacity and excellent visibility
