With its radially opposed tri-element atherotomes the FLEX catheter delivers precise, parallel, micro-incisions as it moves along the entire length of the disease, addressing all lesion morphologies. FLEX is unlike traditional static or focal force scoring devices that requires balloon apposition to force the scoring element into the lesion. One SKU for any lesion.
Non-Balloon Based Technology
The FLEX catheter exerts a consistent force of one atmosphere (ATM) on the vessel wall. Low forces help prevent soft tissue damage that can lead to sub optimal acute results, including dissection and the need for bail out stent placement. The FLEX catheter also demonstrates exceptionally low rates of embolization for safer procedures.
Pull Back Technique
The integrated tip and low crossing profile of the FLEX catheter allows the device to smoothly navigate the vessel. Once distal to the area being treated, the FLEX catheter atherotomes are unsheathed, actuated via the finger lever, and the device is pulled back through the diseased vessel.
