Imager™ II Angiographic Catheter
Indications, Safety and Warnings
INTENDED USE/INDICATIONS FOR USE
The IMAGER II Angiographic Catheters are designed to provide a pathway for delivering contrast media to selected sites in the vascular system, including the carotid arteries. Additionally, the 5F Selective IMAGER II Angiographic Catheters without side holes can also be used for the controlled and selective delivery of the Boston Scientific Interlock - 35 Detachable Coils into the peripheral vasculature.
No known contraindications.
- Angiographic catheters are designed for use by physicians engaged in the practice of a specialized branch of medicine. Use of these devices should be restricted to those specialists trained to perform the procedure. A thorough understanding of the technical principles, clinical applications, and risks associated with diagnostic angiography is necessary before performing this procedure.
- Accordingly, the IMAGER II Angiographic Catheters should only be used by physicians with a thorough understanding of angiographic procedures.
- Due to the various sizes and shapes, and the relative stiffness of angiographic catheters, extreme care must be taken when selecting and using the IMAGER™ II Angiographic Catheters to avoid damage to the vessel walls through which this catheter passes.
- Do not exceed the pressure ratings printed on the device labeling. Catheter integrity may be compromised if pressure limits are exceeded.
- The risk associated with IMAGER II Angiographic Catheters outside the intended use is not known.
Precautions to prevent or reduce clotting should be taken when any catheter is used in the vascular system. The catheter should always be filled with either heparinized saline solution or contrast medium. Use of systemic heparinization should be considered.
Potential adverse events (in alphabetical order) which may be associated with the use of angiographic catheters include but are not limited to:
- Access Site Related Trauma
- Arteriovenous Fistula
- Neurological Deficit Including Stroke
- Plaque Dislodgment
- Thrombus Formation
- Vessel Occlusion
- Vessel Wall Damage/Dissection/Perforation/Rupture
