Metacross® - PTA dilatation catheter

Advance your approach to exceptional performance

Metacross is a percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) balloon dilatation catheter for peripheral indications.

Metacross RX (rapid exchange) is the perfect match for the Misago RX self-expanding peripheral stent, combining safety, simplicity and effectiveness.1

Characteristics

​Better handling by design2

Essential improvements in efficiency and control with Rapid Exchange2

  • Enables fast, convenient exchange of devices2
  • Supports the use of short guidewires3
  • Encourages procedural efficiency, reducing potentially fluoroscopy time4 and radiation time3
  • Optimizes control allowing a single operator to perform the procedure3

End-to-end5 performance with less effort5

Better pushability results demonstrated with innovative catheter design5

  • Engineered for maximizing pushability with a well-designed shaft and stiff tapered core wire
  • Effective transition of force from proximal to distal end for efficient lesion crossing
