Teleflex to Present Innovative Interventional Access Technologies at the Annual Meeting and Postgraduate Course of the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE), to be Held in Barcelona, Spain on September 10-13, 2016

WAYNE, Pa.--()--Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX) a leading global provider of medical devices for critical care, urology and surgery will showcase two of its advanced Arrow® Interventional Access Products at the Annual Congress of the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE) in Barcelona.

During the event, Teleflex will highlight both the Arrow® OnControl® Powered Bone Access System and the ARROW-Clark™ VectorFlow™ Chronic Hemodialysis Catheter, together with other technologically advanced products for interventional applications.

The Arrow® OnControl® Powered Bone Access System offers the ability to effectively1, safely and rapidly2 obtain high quality bone samples. Our bone lesion biopsy needle is designed specifically for multiple bone biopsies from a single cortical penetration. Using Teleflex’s patented handheld driver technology, the Arrow® OnControl® Powered Bone Access System provides interventional radiologists a fast reliable3 solution for accessing dense and hard-to-reach bone lesions.

The ARROW-Clark™ VectorFlow™ Catheter is the only catheter with an innovative tip designed to produce a helical, three-dimensional transition of blood entering and leaving the catheter.4 Designed for optimum performance, the ARROW-Clark™ VectorFlow™ Catheter (available in both retrograde and antegrade insertion platforms) is a tunneled hemodialysis catheter with symmetrical tip that is designed to reduce loss of lock solution (a contributing factor in reducing the risk of thrombus adherence), gives sustained high flows, minimizes recirculation and reduces the risk of platelet damage resulting from shear stress.5

During the CIRSE Congress on Sunday, September 11 and Monday, September 12, at 14:00 Prof. Dr. med. Roman Fischbach, Head of Radiology and Neuroradiology at Asklepios Klinik Altona, will lead in-booth sessions entitled "CT guided bone biopsy with the Arrow® OnControl® Powered Bone Access System. Clinical applications, technique and results."
