Sergeant peripheral support catheter
Barcelona, July 10th, 2020.
iVascular today announced the launch of its sergeant peripheral support catheter. sergeant is a CE marked OTW catheter, indicated for patients with peripheral artery disease in small vessels or challenging anatomy during diagnostic and interventional procedures.
Therefore, sergeant is intended to facilitate, guide and support guidewires.
It also allows guidewire exchanges and provides a conduit for the delivery of saline solutions and diagnostic contrast agents.
Sergeant´s outstanding guidewire support is possible thanks to its braided catheter that allows exceptional pushability and torque.
iVascular HYDRAX+ proprietary hydrophilic coating increases the catheter`s trackability, allowing sergeant to pass through tortuous anatomy.
In terms of visibility, sergeant features 4 radiopaque markers that asses accurately the catheters position and lesion length.
The device is available with the tip, straight and 30º angled, and in lengths between 65 and 150cm while offering compatibility with 0.014”, 0.018” and 0.035” guidewires, all of them being 4F introducer compatible.
Dr Marc Sirvent, Angiologist and Vascular Surgeon Specialist in the University Hospital Germans Trias i Pujol (Spain), did the first procedures with the product and highlights that “The first sensations are really good. It has a fantastic profile, navigability and visibility. The product easily crossed the occlusion in the tibial posterior and plantar arch.”
• Exceptional pushability and torque capacity thanks to its unique braided design
• Increased support due to its tapered shaft design
• Good navigability in tortuous anatomy with HYDRAX+ hydrophilic coating
• Perfect visibility thanks to its 4 radiopaque markers
