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.
*Not made with natural rubber latex.
