  • Superelastic and shape memory properties of nitinol provide kink resistance.
  • Ideal for challenging or unplanned foreign body retrieval and manipulation cases.
  • Snare catheter contains a platinum-iridium radiopaque marker band.

True 90° snare loop remains coaxial to the lumen

  • Snare loop forms a true 90° angle.
  • Device remains coaxial to the lumen for proper insertion and successful retrieval or manipulation of atraumatic foreign bodies.

Gold-plated tungsten coils for enhanced visualization

  • Gold-plated tungsten loop provides excellent radiopacity for improved procedural precision. 

Wide variety of sizes for optimal fit

  • Goose Neck snares are available in a range of sizes to ensure optimal fit in the cardiovascular system or hollow viscus.

Proper sizing of the snare prior to procedure ensures straightforward retrieval in target vessel and less manipulation time within the vessel.
