iVascular receives CE mark approval for Luminor 18 drug-eluting balloon



iVascular’s Luminor 18 drug-eluting balloon, has received CE mark approval.

Luminor 18, which is 0.018 guide wire-compatible, is added to the existing Luminor range (Luminor 14 and Luminor 35). Combining extra low profile with drug eluting coating technology, it is intended to contribute to procedure cost reduction.

As stated by Koen Deloose (Dendermonde, Belgium), “the well tapered, perfectly visible Lumonir 18 has an ultra-low profile. It is 4F introducer sheath compatible in most sizes, which is a significant improvement in the drug-eluting balloon world.”

With this approval, iVascular is preparing to commercialise the balloon across European and other markets.
