Reflow Medical introduces the low-profile Spex LP 0.014 and 0.018-inch reinforced support catheters.
According to the company, the Spex LP is designed with a low-profile tip for accessing and crossing the “tightest and most complex lesions” with a supportive system. The customisable tip can be shaped to the desired angle and is compatible with the physician’s choice of guidewire and procedural technique. The device also features three radiopaque markers that enhance visibility on imaging. Additionally, the Spex LP can be combined with Reflow’s Spex 35 for more robust support, the company notes.
“Using the new Spex LP with the Spex 35 creates a telescoping action for extra support,” comments S Jay Mathews (Bradenton Cardiology Center, Bradenton, USA), one of the first physicians to use the Spex LP, in the company’s press release.
Jihad A Mustapha (Advanced Cardiac & Vascular Centers for Amputation Prevention, Grand Rapids, USA) adds: “The Spex LP has an extremely low lesion-entry profile and provides unmatched flexibility and trackability, especially in difficult cases.”
