Key Features

Design: Unique nitinol “constraining structure” (CS) mounted on a semi compliant balloon

  • Reduces the strain and trauma induced on the vessel walls during inflation through the use of “pillows”
  • Uniformly distributes circumferential forces (calcific or eccentric lesions)
  • Modifies plaque via:
    • “Pillows”: Vessel dilatation without cutting or scoring
    • “Grooves”: Stress relief, plaque modification
  • Reduces dissections and may disrupt superficial calcium
  • Fast deflation, concentric, low secondary profile – facilitates lesion re-crossing after multiple inflations
  • Does not elongate – minimizes stretching of the vessel during inflation
