Indications for Use

The Pacific Plus PTA catheter is intended to dilate stenoses in the iliac, femoral, iliofemoral, popliteal, infrapopliteal, and renal arteries, and for the treatment of obstructive lesions of native or synthetic arteriovenous dialysis fistulae. Catheters with balloon diameters of 4–7 mm (in all lengths) are also indicated for stent postdilatation in the peripheral arteries.


The catheter is contraindicated for use in coronary arteries or the neurovasculature. It is also contraindicated when the guidewire is unable to cross the target lesion.
