Chocolate PTA Balloon Catheter

Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty

Overview

Minimize Vessel Trauma, reduce dissections, and decrease the need for bailout stenting above or below the knee with the Chocolate™* PTA balloon. The balloon’s unique nitinol constraining structure creates pillows and grooves that provide for predictable, uniform and atraumatic dilatation.


U.S. INDICATIONS

The Chocolate™* PTA Balloon Catheter is intended for balloon dilatation of lesions in the peripheral vasculature, including the iliac, femoral, ilio-femoral, popliteal, infra-popliteal, and renal arteries.


PRODUCT DETAILS

The Chocolate PTA balloon catheter is an over-the-wire balloon dilatation catheter with a braided shaft and an atraumatic, tapered tip. The distal end of the catheter incorporates a semi-compliant dilatation balloon that expands to known diameters at specific pressures. The balloon is constrained by a nitinol structure that creates pillows and grooves in the balloon, and also provides fast deflation and uniform re-wrap.

The balloon contains two radiopaque markers to assist positioning.

The catheters are compatible with either 0.014” or 0.018” guidewires, and they are available in lengths ranging from 120 to 150 cm, in different balloon lengths.

Design of Chocolate PTA Balloon Catheter

Design of Chocolate PTA Balloon Catheter
  1. Braided catheter shaft is designed to provide robust push to reach and cross lesions.
  2. Grooves allow for plaque release, minimizing traumatic angioplasty effect.
  3. Pillows provide predictable vessel dilation without cutting or scoring.
  4. Tapered tip enables lower entry profile for optimal lesion access.
  5. Nylon, semi-compliant balloon allows for optimal balloon pillow formation.
  6. Nitinol-constraining structure shields vessel wall from shear (torsional) stress caused by balloon unfolding, enables the even distribution of radial and longitudinal forces during balloon inflation, and allows for rapid deflation and uniform re-wrap.
