Fortrex PTA Balloon Catheter

Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty

Overview

Deliver high-pressure, targeted treatment to challenging lesions with the Fortrex™ 0.035" OTW PTA balloon catheter, a balloon designed and engineered for peak performance at rated burst pressure. Choose Fortrex high pressure PTA balloon catheters when your AV access or arterial intervention requires a product with balanced push and track, optimal balloon shape retention at rated burst pressure, and a best-in-class tip entry profile.


U.S. Indications

The Fortrex 0.035” OTW PTA balloon catheter is intended to dilate stenoses in the iliac, femoral, iliofemoral, popliteal, infra-popliteal, and renal arteries, and for the treatment of obstructive lesions of native or synthetic arteriovenous dialysis fistulae. This device is also indicated for stent post-dilatation in the peripheral vasculature.
