HOW THE SPRINTER LEGEND RX CATHETER WORKS
Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI), also known as coronary angioplasty, is a therapeutic procedure to treat the narrowed or stenotic section of the coronary artery of the heart due to coronary atherosclerosis. In balloon catheter angioplasty, tightly folded and narrow balloons are passed into the narrowed artery and inflated to a fixed size using liquid. This procedure reduces the narrowing of the artery by pushing the plaque (or blockage) to the sides of the artery.1
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.
Designed to meet a spectrum of clinical challenges, Sprinter Legend RX offers:
