Launcher Coronary Guide Catheter

The Launcher® Coronary Guide Catheter offers you a blend of flexibility, support and visualization, the capability you need to respond to your challenging cases.

How the Launcher Guide 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. The guide catheter provides support for device advancement (stents, balloons, etc.). It is the conduit for device and wire transport, a vehicle for contrast injection and takes measurements. Guide catheters are available in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit a variety of patient anatomies.
