PTCA Dilatation Catheter (RX)


Tazuna rapid exchange PTCA balloon catheter is intended for use during percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) for the purpose of improving myocardial blood flow in a localized stenotic lesion of the coronary arteries.

Tazuna is a high performance balloon utilizing a combination of Terumo’s technologies to improve crossability and pushability to treat the most complex lesions.


Maximized pushability 

  • Mid-shaft construction balances flexibility and stiffness, maximizing the transmission force to the distal section 
  • Modified guidewire exit port for more durability in complex procedures1
  • Low profile and thick hypotube to enhance pushability and kink resistance

Crossing performance

  • Ultra-low entry profile (0.40 mm / 0.016'') for the most challenging lesions 
  • A flexible and robust tip to cross tight lesions and stent struts 
  • Hydrophilic coating on the distal shaft to facilitate navigation through tortuous vessels and calcified distal lesions

Superior re-wrapping and re-crossability2

  • Specially engineered tri-wrapped balloon for excellent re-wrapping performance to enhance re-crossability
