The Chocolate PTA balloon catheter is an over-the-wire balloon dilatation catheter with a braided shaft and an atraumatic, tapered tip. The distal end of the catheter incorporates a semi-compliant dilatation balloon that expands to known diameters at specific pressures. The balloon is constrained by a nitinol structure that creates pillows and grooves in the balloon, and also provides fast deflation and uniform re-wrap.
The balloon contains two radiopaque markers to assist positioning.
The catheters are compatible with either 0.014” or 0.018” guidewires, and they are available in lengths ranging from 120 to 150 cm, in different balloon lengths.
