Improved Pushability and Outstanding Trackability Designed for Greater Crossing Success*

Reaching a complex lesion is important, but crossing it is critical. An optimal balance between pushability and trackability gives the APEX Balloon Catheter the power to push beyond difficult lesions, increasing your crossing and stent delivery success.

Advanced Technologies Provide Improved Pushability*

  • Bi-Segment™ Inner Shaft (Monorail™ and OTW Catheters): Stiff and flexible segments enhance both pushability and trackability*
  • TruFeel™ Hypotube (Monorail Catheter): Designed to improve kink resistance and has a polymer sleeve for handling and device integrity
  • Slope™ Outer Shaft (OTW Catheter): Seamless one piece shaft made of new nano-composite material designed to enhance push efficiency
