DxTerity and DxTerity TRA Diagnostic Catheters

Proprietary market-leading extrusion process improves performance where it matters

Every detail matters in the cath lab

Now you can get the performance and versatility to take on your most challenging cases. DxTerity™ catheters are optimized for radial and femoral procedures1, and feature the same design innovations found in our market-leading guide catheters.

Superior torque and lubricity — for precise manipulation and enhanced deliverability2

Full-Wall Technology — a proprietary extrusion process applied from hub to tip that melts catheter layers together to form a solid shaft.

Finally, a diagnostic catheter as responsive as you are. Take it for a spin.

DxTerity

1. Unique, ergonomic, winged hub makes for easy manipulation

2. Solid shaft construction for efficient torque and overall catheter performance

3. InSlide™ polymer additive for superior lubricity and enhanced deliverability3

4. Soft, atraumatic, radiopaque tip increases visibility

5. Double-braid wire enhances strength, torque and kink resistance

DXTERITY TRA DIAGNOSTIC CATHETER

 

DxTerity™ TRA diagnostic catheters are specifically adapted for radial use.1 Five universal radial curve shapes engage both coronaries without catheter exchange.4

 

TRApease Curve
TRAPEASE CURVE

Relaxed secondary curve allows for easy engagement of the coronary artery ostia. Includes additional tertiary curve for added support.

Sizing: 3.5, 4.0, 4.5

Tracker Curve
ULTRA CURVE

Relaxed secondary curve allows for easy engagement of the coronary artery ostia. Simple clockwise and counter-clockwise rotations to engage the RCA.

Sizing: 3.5, 4.0, 4.5

TRAnsformer Curve
TRANSFORMER CURVE

Provides excellent support from the aortic root and offers more reach to engage the coronary artery ostia.

Sizing: 3.5, 4.0, 4.5

TRActive Curve
TRACTIVE CURVE

30-degree soft tip after the primary curve, allowing it to engage the coronary artery ostia.

Sizing: One size fits all

Tracker Curve
TRACKER CURVE

Provides excellent support from the contralateral wall and aortic root leverage.

Sizing: One size fits all
