Rebar Reinforced Micro Catheter

Peripheral Embolization

OVERVIEW

The Rebar™ reinforced micro catheter is a single-lumen catheter introduced via a steerable guidewire into the vasculature. Its stainless-steel construction, high kink resistance, and hydrophilic coating help navigate tortuous anatomy and deploy therapeutic agents or contrast media with ease.


INDICATIONS

The Rebar reinforced micro catheter is intended for the controlled selective infusion of physician-specified therapeutic agents or contrast media into the vasculature of the peripheral and neuro anatomy.


PRODUCT DETAILS

The catheter’s semi-rigid proximal shaft transitions into a flexible distal shaft, facilitating advancement into the anatomy. A standard luer adapter at the proximal end enables ready attachment of accessories.*

Pushability and visibility*

  • Continuous stainless-steel construction provides added reinforcement
  • High resistance to kinking when maneuvering around tight bends
  • Distal radiopaque marker aids fluoroscopic visualization

Smooth delivery*

  • Lubricious hydrophilic outer coating helps navigate tortuous vessels and reduce resistance
  • PTFE inner liner eases the passage and deployment of embolic devices and agents
  • DMSO compatible

Superselectivity*

  • Steam-shapeable catheter tip through the use of a mandrel enables treatment of super selective vessels
