Percutaneous Transluminal Valvuloplasty

NuCLEUS™ and NuCLEUS-X™

NuCLEUS™ and NuCLEUS-X™catheters feature an innovative balloon designed with a waist formed in the middle of the balloon to facilitate positive positioning while holding the balloon in the correct location prior to and during inflation. The NuCLEUS-X™ catheter features a braided inner tubing which provides high inner lumen strength for increased pushability. Upon reaching a specified pressure, the waist will expand between 90% to almost 100% of the rated balloon diameter. The NuCLEUS™ and NuCLEUS-X™ catheters are indicated for PTV of the mitral and aortic valves. The NuCLEUS™ is available in diameters ranging from 10.0-30.0mm and lengths of 3.0-6.0cm, and the NuCLEUS-X™ is available in diameters ranging from 18.0-30.0mm and lengths of 4.0-6.0cm.

COEfficient™

COEfficient™ balloon catheters were developed in collaboration with Dr. Yashu Coe. The distinguishing feature of this high pressure balloon catheter is its extremely thin profile for a balloon with RBPs as high as 13 ATM.  The COEfficient™ valvuloplasty catheter is engineered for maximum steering and tracking.  The coaxial shaft design provides enhanced column strength and pushability combined with a flexible distal tip for optimum steerability.  The COEfficient™ is available in a range of diameters (4.0-12.0mm) and lengths (2.0-3.0cm) and can be used with even the smallest introducer sheaths (4-7FR).

Mitral Dilatation Kit

The Bonhoeffer Multi-Track Mitral Dilatation Kit was developed in collaboration with Dr. Philipp Bonhoeffer and is an innovative and well-established system for Mitral Dilatation.  This consists of a double balloon technique while using a simple, single guidewire approach.  The innovative approach was invented to solve the problem of the mismatch between the round shape of a single balloon and the oval mitral orifice.  The technique achieves consistently higher valve areas post dilatation.

TYSHAK® Line

TYSHAK® balloon catheters were designed in collaboration with Prof Mike Tynan and Prof Shakeel Qureshi.  They are designed with a low profile that delivers high performance. Manufactured from a micro-thin, non-compliant balloon material, these innovative balloon catheters require small introducers. The reduced sheath size helps minimize vessel trauma and entry-site complications. A short, flexible distal tip provides superior maneuverability. With well-defined shoulders and balloon tapers, TYSHAK® catheters glide easily through smaller and difficult-to-negotiate vessels. They are available in a range of diameters (2.0-30.0mm) and lengths (1.0-10.0cm).
