Product Details

NC EMERGE is Boston Scientific's Most Advanced PTCA Catheter

NC Emerge is Boston Scientific's Most Advanced PTCA Catheter

Ultra-low lesion entry point

  • 0.017" lesion entry profile
  • Improves overall flexibility and performance in tortuous anatomy

Over-the-inner tip design

  • Outer tip material rides over the inner shaft
  • Designed to improve overall flexibility and tip performance
  • Short tip designed to lessen tip catch occurrence and offer greater control

Reduced shaft profile

  • Designed for exceptional simultaneous use performance
  • Allows for use of two MonorailTM catheters in a 6 F
    guide catheter and two Over-the-Wire catheters in an 8 F guide catheter*
* 6 F guide catheter with a minimum 0.070" ID, 8 F guide catheter with a minimum 0.088" ID

Hydrophilic coating

  • Reduced frictional force on the catheter shaft

Reduced crossing profile†

  • 0.031" (0.787 mm) crossing profile
† Crossing profile is defined as the maximum diameter found between the proximal end of the balloon and the distal tip of the catheter.  Definition excerpted from FDA Guidance document titled, Class II Special Controls Guidance Document for Certain Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) Catheters.

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
