NC Sprinter RX

Noncompliant Balloon Dilatation Catheter

NC Sprinter RX Noncompliant Balloon Dilatation Catheter

The 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

Nominal pressure
Rated burst pressure

Test data on file with Medtronic, Inc.
* Rated burst pressure: the maximum pressure to which a balloon is designed to be inflated (95% confidence that 99.9% will not fail below rated burst pressure). DO NOT EXCEED.
Nominal pressure: the pressure at which the balloon reaches its labeled diameter.
