Cardiovascular Systems has announced that the full line of OrbusNeich Jade percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) over-the-wire (OTW) balloon catheters is now available in the USA. Cardiovascular Systems is the exclusive US distributor of OrbusNeich balloon products.
Jade is an OTW balloon catheter for PTA in the peripheral vasculature, including obstructed native arteries and synthetic arteriovenous dialysis fistulae, as well as for post-dilatation of balloon expandable and self-expanding stents.
Jade is a non-compliant balloon designed for high pressure tolerance and balloon dilatation with even pressure distribution for the treatment of complex lesions. These balloons are compatible with standard 0.014”, 0.018”, and 0.035” guidewires, and with catheter working lengths ranging from 135cm to 200cm and balloon working lengths from 20mm to 240mm.
Kousta Issa Foteh (Vital Heart and Vein, Humble, USA) and Siddhartha Rao (Vascular Solutions of North Carolina, Cary, USA), were two of the first physicians in the USA to adopt the full line of Jade in their respective practices.
“I was eager to add the full line of Jade PTA balloons to my practice. The predictable, uniform inflation of these non-compliant balloons allows for accuracy in balloon sizing and reduces the potential for vessel recoil,” commented Foteh.
Rao added: “The deliverability of the Jade balloons, whether it be on the 0.014”, 0.018”, or 0.035” platform, is exceptional. These balloons have consistently allowed me to cross and treat challenging lesions successfully in situations where I would have previously failed with other balloons.”
