SIS Medical Launches Coronary Balloon Catheters


September 5, 2018—SIS Medical AG, a Swiss manufacturer of cardiology products, announced the launch of three new models of its coronary balloon catheters: EasyT, NIC 1.1 hydro, and NIC Nano hydro. The devices recently obtained CE Mark approval, which will enable the products to be marketed within the European Union while also facilitating registration in Asia, South America, and some Middle Eastern countries, for commercialization in the near future.

According to the company, the three new catheters have been successfully tested in various clinics in Germany and Switzerland. They feature an innovative new wing design for the catheter connection that greatly facilitates identification of the appropriate balloon size and handling during interventions.

The EasyT catheter is used to prepare the vessel before stent implantation and for postdilation of the stent in case better stent expansion is required. With a small profile and trackability in tortuous vessel anatomy, the device is suitable for numerous vascular stenoses.

The NIC 1.1 hydro and NIC Nano 0.85 hydro devices have low crossing profiles and the small diameters and can withstand the high pressure in vascular occlusion. The catheters feature a hydrophilic coating providing a very smooth surface and low frictional resistance, even in curved vessels.
