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.
