TrapIT – Trapping Balloon Catheter
The TrapIT Trapping Balloon Catheter is a single use device, consisting of a hub, shaft and balloon. The hub is provided with strain relief to prevent kinking of the shaft. The shaft is provided with a stiffening wire to aid in positioning the balloon. The expandable balloon is positioned close to the distal tip. As aid in positioning the balloon the distal tip is provided with a radiopaque marker to make the tip visible with fluoroscopy.
The TrapIT will not be used over a guide wire and has thus no guide wire lumen.
As aid in positioning the balloon in a guide catheter a 90 or 100 cm tactile feedback stop is integrated in the shaft at the respective specific length for the used guide catheter.
For use with a 90 cm guiding catheter, the shaft of the 100 cm compatible TrapIT is provided with a depth marking to indicate that the distal tip of the catheter is at the level of the distal tip of the guiding catheter.
• Unique auto stop
• Highly compatible small shaft profile
• Designed to trap the guidewire at low inflation pressure in a 6F, 7F or 8F guide catheter
