Metacross® RX

PTA Balloon Dilatation Catheter

Description

Advance your approach to exceptional performance

Metacross RX 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 design1

Essential improvements in efficiency and control with Rapid Exchange1

  • Enables fast, convenient exchange of devices1
  • Supports the use of short guidewires2

  • Encourages procedural efficiency, reducing potentially fluoroscopy time3 and radiation time2
  • Optimizes control allowing a single operator to perform the procedure2

End-to-end4 performance with less effort4

Better pushability results demonstrated with innovative catheter design4

  • 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
