Addressing Today's Septostomy Challenges

The Z-6™ is now available in the US providing interventionalists a second option when treating patients requiring balloon atrioseptostomy. The new Z-6™ features design enhancements which include a short distal tip for easier insertion through the septum and improved rewrapping. To facilitate passage of the catheter into the left atrium, the 35 degree tip angulation was moved closer to the balloon. 

The Z-6™ utilizes a non-compliant balloon which maintains its shape during pullback. It is available in 9.5mm and 13.5mm diameters on a 5 French shaft with an inner catheter lumen for utilization of a guidewire.  Available in the US through our distributor B Braun Interventional Systems.
