Indications, Safety, and Warnings

Prescriptive Information

CAUTION: Federal law (USA) restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician. Rx only. Prior to use, please see the complete “Directions for Use” for more information on Indications, Contraindications, Warnings, Precautions, Adverse Events, and Operator’s Instructions.

Jetstream Catheters Combined with Console



The JETSTREAM System is intended for use in atherectomy of the peripheral vasculature and to break apart and remove thrombus from upper and lower extremity peripheral arteries. It is not intended for use in coronary, carotid, iliac or renal vasculature.


The PVCN100 Console is designed for use only with the JETSTREAM Catheter and Control Pod. See the current revision of the applicable Catheter and Control Pod Directions for Use for further information.


None known. 



  • Use room temperature infusate only. Use of heated infusate may lead to wrinkling, ballooning and/or bursting of the outer catheter sheath, which could lead to injury to the patient
  • Operating the Catheter over a kinked guidewire may cause vessel damage or guidewire fracture.
  • During treatment, do not allow the Catheter tip within 10.0 cm of spring tip portion of the guidewire. Interaction between the Catheter Tip and this portion of the guidewire may cause damage to or detachment of the guidewire tip or complicate guidewire management.
  • The guidewire must be in place prior to operating the Catheter in the patient. Absence of the guidewire may lead to inability to steer the Catheter and cause potential vessel damage.
  • If the guidewire is accidentally retracted into the device during placement or treatment, stop use, and remove the Catheter and the guidewire from the patient. Verify that the guidewire is not damaged before re-inserting the guidewire. If damage is noticed, replace the guidewire.
  • Check the infusate bag frequently and replace when needed. Do not run the JETSTREAM System without infusate as this may cause device failure.
  • Hold the guidewire firmly during Catheter retraction process. Failure to do so may result in guidewire rotation within the vessel, which could cause patient injury.
  • Do not manipulate the Catheter against resistance unless the cause for that resistance has been determined.
  • Prior to use of the JETSTREAM System, confirm the minimum vessel diameter proximal to the lesion per the following table:







Minimum Vessel Diameter Proximal to Lesion

2.5 mm




Minimum Vessel Diameter, Blades Down



3.0 mm

3.5 mm

Minimum Vessel Diameter, Blades Up



4.0 mm

4.5 mm


  • Do not bend or kink the Catheter during setup or during the procedure. This may damage the device and lead to device failure.
  • Do not inject contrast while the device is activated.
  • Use only listed compatible guidewires and introducers with the JETSTREAM System. The use of any supplies not listed as compatible may damage or compromise the performance of the JETSTREAM System



WARNING: To avoid the risk of electric shock, this equipment must only be connected to a supply mains with protective earth

  • Do not open either pump door during operation of the System. Doing so could result in loss of aspiration and/or infusion and will halt device activation.
  • Ensure the PVCN100 Console display is visible during the entire procedure.
  • Observe normal safety practices associated with electrical/electronic medical equipment.
  • Avoid excessive coiling or bending of the power cables during storage.
  • Store the PVCN100 Console using appropriate care to prevent accidental damage.
  • Do not place objects on the PV Console.
  • Do not immerse the PV Console in liquids.
