OrbusNeich out of Wanchai, Hong Kong has received the European CE Mark of approval for its Sapphire II coronary dilation catheter. The device, available down to 1.0 mm, was designed to help pass through some pretty tight lesions:
Sapphire II offers an ultra-low crossing profile across a broad range of configurations, including 1.0 mm diameter balloons and 150 cm shaft working length versions. Sapphire II features a flexible, supple balloon material for slender rewrap; an XD (eXtra Durable) shaft for enhanced pushability and superb kink resistance; proprietary Hydro-X coating for lubricious crossing; and Z-Tip technology resulting in ‘Zero’ transition between the tip and guidewire for smooth and safe penetration of the tightest of lesions.
