FineDuo®

Dual Lumen Catheter

Description

​A precision tool for your Complex-PCI toolbox

​FineDuo is a low profile, multifunctional, dual lumen micro-catheter that provides robust support and easy access to complex coronary vasculature1.

Whenever you need support and access for:

  • Complex anatomies, including tortuous coronary vasculature
  • Complex pathologies including acute angulated lesions
  • Complex procedures and wiring techniques requiring greater force transmission2,3

 

FineDuo maximizes procedural success2,4, while minimizing radiation exposure5 and procedural time.4,6

Characteristics

Maintains manoeuvrability

  • Dual Lumen configuration avoids tangling of guidewires and improves guidewire manipulation1
  • Design at OTW lumen exit port generates greater rotation range for the guidewire7
  • Robust proximal shaft maintains its stability and manoeuvrability7,8

Achieves superior crossability

  • Double radiopaque markers for accurate placement, including a 1mm marker on RX lumen for clear visualization of the distal tip
  • Low profile, tapered flex tip and hydrophilic coating with strong back-up force provides superior trackability and crossability2,8
  • Stronger penetration force compared to a conventional microcatheter8
