WAYNE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX), a leading global provider of medical technologies for critical care, urology and surgery, will showcase its Arrow® Interventional Access Portfolio at the 2nd Annual Congress of the European Society for Vascular Medicine (ESVM) to be held in Rome, Italy on May 8 – 10, 2016.
During the event, Teleflex will highlight the Arrow® GPSCath® Balloon Dilatation Catheter featuring innovative VisioValve® Technology over a 0.014 guidewire - for infrapopliteal interventions.
The Arrow® GPSCath® Catheter is a specialty two-in-one device that is indicated for percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) in the peripheral vasculature, including iliac, femoral, popliteal, infrapopliteal and renal arteries allowing the physician to conduct angioplasty and inject fluid (targeted angiogram specifically at lesion site) while maintaining catheter and guidewire position. Below-the-knee interventions can be complex undertakings, requiring multiple devices, numerous procedural steps and significant procedural time. The Arrow® GPSCath® Catheter offers a solution by combining angioplasty and angiography into one device.
Prof. Marianne Brodmann, University Hospital Graz, Austria, will present the Arrow® GPSCath® Balloon Dilatation Catheter with a recorded live-case "Popliteal and BTK trifurcation occlusion in dialyzed diabetic Rutherford 5" on Monday May 9, at 10:09 a.m., during the Symposium: Endovascular Techniques and Arterial Revascularisation held from 09:00-10:30 a.m. in the Dali Auditorium.
