The Z-5™ Atrioseptostomy catheter was developed in collaboration with Dr Ziyad Hijazi and was first approved and introduced in 1996.  With over 25 years of proven safety and clinical experience, the Z-5™ is trusted by interventional pediatric cardiologists throughout the world.  The dual lumen shaft design provides pushability, coupled with exceptional pull strength.  The Z-5™is available in 9.5mm and 13.5mm diameters.

The Z-6™ leverages the same proven materials used in construction of the Z-5™. Product enhancements for the Z-6™ Atrioseptostomy catheter were made based on input from interventional pediatric cardiologists. Enhancements include a short distal tip for easier insertion through the septum and improved rewrapping allowing for easier removal into the introducer.
