Cordis Railway Sheathless Access System Approved in Europe


April 18, 2017—Cordis, a Cardinal Health company, received the European CE Mark approval for its new Railway sheathless access system, which is now available in select countries across Europe. The Railway device is indicated for use in radial arterial procedures requiring percutaneous introduction of intravascular devices.

According to the company, the Cordis device enables direct access to the radial artery with a guiding catheter and eliminates the need for an introducer sheath, which reduces the size of the arterial puncture site up to 2 F, compared to a conventional sheath system.

The Railway sheathless access system is compatible with Cordis 5-, 6-, and 7-F guiding catheters of any shape, including dedicated radial shapes. The device is optimized to fit either Cordis Vista Brite Tip or Cordis Adroit catheters with smooth transitions from guidewire to dilator and dilator to guiding catheter.
