Z-MED™ high pressure balloon catheters were designed in collaboration with Dr. Ziyad Hijazi. The Z-MED™ catheters are suitable for percutaneous transluminal valvuloplasty (PTV) and pre-dilatation in transcatheter heart-valve replacement procedures. They feature high rated burst pressures suitable for resistant stenosis and have rapid inflation and deflation times to minimize procedure time and maximize reperfusion.
Short, flexible distal tips with short balloon tapers aid maneuverability and trackability through tortuous anatomy. They are available in a wide range of balloon diameters (2.0-40.0mm) and lengths (2.0-10cm).
Z-MED™ catheters are available in the US through B. Braun Interventional Systems, Inc.
