AngioDynamics launched in the U.S. its new DuraFlow 2 chronic hemodialysis catheter that allows for higher blood flow over a longer period of time with less recirculation.
Additionally, the soon to be released DuraFlow 2 VascPak (VP) kit has been redesigned to make them smaller for easier handling and storage.
From the announcement:
Along with the DuraMax® chronic hemodialysis catheter, AngioDynamics offers the only 48 cm chronic dialysis catheters on the market, allowing for femoral catheter placements in patients of varying sizes. The DuraFlow 2 catheter continues to provide optimal ease of insertion and sustained high flow rates. A new tough, rigid thermoplastic polyurethane luer increases durability, allowing for more secure fastening to dialysis machines.
The new streamlined VP kit, set for launch in the fiscal 2012 third quarter, is designed to meet the needs of many outpatient vascular access centers. Additionally, tray sizes for both the VP and basic kits have been reduced by approximately 30 percent, providing an ideal fit with popular automated medical supply stations and easier handling and storage.
