The Z-5™ features a micro-thin non-compliant balloon for a low deflated profile that maintains its flexibility. The balloon inflation is controlled by volume. The tip of the catheter is angled at 35 degrees to facilitate passage into the left atrium. The Z-5™ catheter has a dual lumen, with an end hole that can accommodate a guidewire. The catheter body is radiopaque to facilitate reliable positioning of the catheter. The reduced 9.5mm inflated balloon size makes atrioseptostomy easier to perform on neonates with a small left atrium.
The catheter body is Polymeric, DEHP-free, and not made with natural rubber latex. The balloon is a thermoplastic elastomer (non-compliant), DEHP-free, and not made with natural rubber latex.
