The Emerge percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) catheter, which is available in balloon diameters ranging from 1.5 mm up to 4.0 mm and lengths from 8 mm up to 30 mm, includes Monorail and over-the-wire (OTW) options.

The Monorail and OTW catheters use push technology (1.5 mm) to offer a single-segment inner shaft for enhanced pushability and workhorse technology (1.5 mm to 4.0 mm) to provide bi-segment inner shaft for excellent deliverability without sacrificing push.

Wake Heart & Vascular spokesperson Tift Mann said the pre-dilatation balloon catheter combines Boston Scientific’s balloon technologies into a single platform.

"The result is exceptional deliverability and reliable performance in a wide range of anatomy and lesion types," Mann added.

Boston Scientific interventional cardiology division president Kevin Ballinger said, "The Emerge Balloon Catheter further enhances the Boston Scientific portfolio by offering a versatile platform with a range of options and features that allow physicians to select the appropriate balloon based on clinical need."
