Cook Medical won FDA approval for the firm’s MiraFlex™ High Flow catheter, which is indicated “for use in small vessel or superselective anatomy for diagnostic and interventional procedures,” according to the company.
From the press release:
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 embolisation 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 1000 psi and achieves the higher flow rates clinicians depend upon.
Each MiraFlex High Flow microcatheter has a hydrophilic coating designed to greatly reduce surface friction, and is engineered with five durometer zones ranging from a stout proximal portion that delivers improved pushability and control, to a soft, flexible distal tip that reduces the risk of vessel trauma.
