Vascular Solutions has announced the launch of its Minnie support catheter. The new catheter is designed to provide superior guidewire support and exchange for complex interventions, with versions designed for use with .014″, .018″ and 0.35″ guidewires.
The Minnie support catheter features a smoothly tapered distal tip to facilitate guidewire control, combined with a low crossing profile for navigating small vessels and crossing tight lesions. Its single-layer polymer design offers flexibility with exceptional tracking, while its fully embedded radiopaque markers – a unique feature that eliminates exposed metal – allow the operator to easily confirm positioning and assess lesion length. Currently available in the United States and Europe, the Minnie support catheter is packaged one unit per box.
