PTA Scoring Balloon Catheter

Novel Scientific Engineering

  • For effective plaque modification and adequate expansion in peripheral arteries and AV fistula (de novo and restenotic lesions).
  • Provides an efficacious scoring effect when used for predilatation.


Low entry profile and flexible tip

  • Facilitate lesion entry and guidewire tracking
  • Provide for high trackability even in tortuous vessels [1]


Flexible free floating elements

  • Improve deliverability even in complex lesions
  • Allow for smooth dilatation without edge stress


Triangular shaped elements

  • Stabilize the balloon in the lesion during inflation [1]
  • Provide an efficacious scoring effect due to high concentrated force transmission [2]
