PTS® and PTS-X™
Recommended for use in those patients with cardiovascular defects wherein accurate measurement of the defect is important to select the appropriately sized occluder device.
The sizing balloon catheters have short tapers at the distal and proximal ends for enhanced transition across the stenosis and post dilatation ease of withdrawal into the introducer.
The lumen has two radiopaque bands under the balloon shoulders and there are two additional radiopaque platinum marker bands spaced at 10mm (as measured from leading edge to leading edge). These bands are located at the balloon center and are used as a distance reference (the 1cm balloon lengths have only two radiopaque marker bands under the balloon shoulders).
