NC SPRINTER RX NONCOMPLIANT BALLOON DILATATION CATHETER5
Medtronic NC sprinter balloon: NC Sprinter® RX Noncompliant Rapid Exchange Balloon Dilatation Catheter combines tried and true Sprinter technology with the high-pressure capability and controlled expansion of a noncompliant balloon.
HOW THE NC SPRINTER RX WORKS?
Stent implantation often follows balloon angioplasty. Once the stent is implanted, post stent deployment as assessed by IVUS or fluoroscopy may be completed to ensure adequate stent expansion and apposition against the arterial wall.1
The NC Sprinter RX noncompliant rapid exchange balloon dilatation catheter combines tried and true Sprinter technology with the high-pressure capacity and controlled expansion of a noncompliant balloon.2
