Southern Cross

Pushability: Optimised hypotube design
Trackability: Hydrophilic coating balloon
Crossability: Low balloon & tip profile
 
Trackability

The whole outer lumen is coated with a newly formulated hydrophilic material to reduce friction and aid trackablity.

 

Crossability

Blow-moulded polyamide ballon material results in higher rated burst pressures while maintaining flexibility. Tri-folded ballon and thin balloon material means reduced catheter profiles. Integrated platinum-iridium radiopaque markers for optimum low profile.

The shaped tip of the Southern Cross catheter combined with the 0.41mm (0.016″) entry profile provides access to the tightest lesions.

Pushability

The hypotube transition to the distal segment is optimised to transform push to flexibility while avoiding kinking.
The result is execellent pushability and trackability.

 

 

Case Study

 

Shepherd’s crook RCA with total occlusion. Angioplasty performed using 2.5 x 20mm Southern Cross catheter.

 

Cardiologist rating “Very good ballon” Scored 8 out of 10 for each of pushability, trackabililty, crossability, tip profile and balloon profile.
