Terumo Medical is launching in the U.S. its SoloPath Balloon Expandable Transfemoral Access System. The SoloPath is designed to provide femoral access during advanced minimally invasive procedures involving large instruments and implants such as prosthetic valves, endovascular grafts and valvuloplasty balloons.
The SoloPath features Onset Medical‘s Controlled Deployment Technology resulting in the smallest insertion profile of any available access sheath while still offering a large lumen for instrument access.
The device’s low profile, malleable design, large internal diameter, and hydrophilic coating may help facilitate delivery in difficult anatomy, minimize insertion forces, and may reduce access site or arterial trauma associated with sheath insertion.
Onset’s patented, balloon-expanding technology allows SoloPath introducer sheaths to be delivered with a lower profile, enabling less-traumatic insertion into and removal from the femoral-iliac vessels. This smaller profile may reduce the potential for vascular complications experienced by conventional bore large sheaths, and may reduce the need for these types of procedures to be managed via more invasive measures.
