Instructions for Use

Superior Strength vs Leading Competitor.

The LeMaitre Single Lumen Embolectomy Catheter features up to 80% stronger balloon bonds and up to 60% stronger rupture resistant balloons at an unbeatable price.*

LeMaitre Embolectomy Catheters
Two types of embolectomy catheters are available: LeMaitre natural latex balloon catheters and NovaSil® silicone balloon catheters**. Single lumen catheters use hand-tied balloons that are glued in three areas and pre-stretched for flexibility. These catheters are strong and able to withstand a substantial force before the balloon disengages from the catheter. Balloons are well-centered and resistant to rupture.

Over-the-Wire embolectomy catheters are also available. These allow for the addition of contrast media to facilitate imaging during fluoroscopy.
  • Radiopaque for visibility under fluoroscopy
  • Constructed of pliable material for introduction and passage through vessels that may be difficult to navigate
  • Color-coding for catheter size identification
  • Long shelf life for sterility
Single Lumen Embolectomy Catheters

Strength: catheter material is strong, allowing the catheters to withstand a substantial force before the balloon disengages.

Resistant to rupture: balloons are manufactured to high specifications so that they are resistant to rupture during contact or trauma.

Predictable inflation: the balloons inflate at a consistent rate as the volume of the balloon increases.

Centered balloons: each balloon is centered on the catheter shaft for concentric inflation and deflation.

Over-the-Wire Embolectomy Catheters

Dye contrast: contrast media can be added to better visualize the catheter under fluoroscopy.

Positioning: standard guidewire capability of the over-the-wire catheter allows for proper positioning of the catheter in the vessel.

Irrigation: lubricate with fewer passes and less intimal trauma during catheter withdrawal.

Novasil Silicone Embolectomy Catheters**

Silicone balloons: provides a viable option for patients with latex sensitivity.

Concentricity: like the latex catheters, the balloons are centered on the catheter to reduce potential damage to the vessel intima.
