Cook Medical, has received CE mark approval for its MiraFlex High Flow Microcatheter. Specially engineered to complement the existing offering of Cook embolization products and coils, MiraFlex High Flow embodies the latest innovation in microcatheter technology designed to enhance traceability necessary for accessing the most distal vasculature. The catheter is indicated for use in small vessel or superselective anatomy for diagnostic and interventional procedures.
With a generous .025 inch inner diameter, MiraFlex High Flow enables optimal coil delivery and can be used in combination with a wide variety of embolization materials, including the top-selling MicroNester and Tornado Microcoils from Cook. A kink-resistant braided construction along the entire length of the catheter shaft to the radiopaque band provides improved torque response and traceability for quicker vessel selection, while maintaining optimal catheter visualisation. The braided design also contributes to the flexibility and durability of the catheter, which carries a rated burst pressure of 1,000 psi and achieves the higher flow rates clinicians depend upon.
The standard MiraFlex catheter received U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance in 2006.
