Paclitaxel-Coated PTA Balloon Catheter
The Loading Tool
When a drug coated balloon is transitioned through a tight introducer’s valve the drug coating can get damaged. This may result in the drug and excipient flaking off the balloon before reaching the lesion.
The loading tool can contribute to both drug coating integrity and ease of use.
The loading tool is designed to improve ease-of use when handling the device, while protecting the drug coating.
- Dedicated tool designed to improve handling
- Shifted over the balloon once balloon protector is removed
Ranger™ is based on the well known Sterling™ PTA balloon dilatation catheter.
Ranger’s deliverability assists in protecting the drug coating to reach the lesion, while preserving coating integrity.
