Designed specifically to address long, diffuse lesions commonly found in infrainguinal arteries, the AngioSculpt PTA scoring balloon catheter offers 360˚ of precise and effective dilatation. AngioSculpt’s smart scoring balloon technology delivers a unique combination of controlled, effective dilatation and predictable device safety.
Precision: Edges lock in for minimal slippage
• Rectangular scoring edges lock the device in place • No significant device slippage or “watermelon seeding” means less risk of damage to healthy tissue.
Power: ~15 – 25x scoring force
• The leading edges are designed to drive outward expansion with up to ~15–25 times the force of a conventional balloon• AngioSculpt's helical nitinol element creates a uniform initial luminal enlargement
Safety: ~1x force post scoring for low dissection rate
• Post scoring, outward forces are designed to be equivalent to that of a conventional balloon • Low dissection rate and minimal perforations• Low rate of adjunctive stenting • Zero (0) flow-limiting dissections.
