From Which Medical Device

The Saber Angioplasty (PTA) dilatation catheter is designed for the treatment of patients with peripheral arterial disease. It is cleared for use and available in Europe, the United States and Japan.

The 0.018-inch PTA balloon catheter is intended to dilate stenoses in iliac, femoral, iliofemoral, popliteal, infrapopliteal, and renal arteries. It is also indicated for the treatment of obstructive lesions of native or synthetic arteriovenous dialysis fistulae and for postdilation of balloon-expandable and self-expanding stents in the peripheral vasculature.

According to the manufacturer, the Saber catheter is designed to provide outstanding crossability with a comprehensive selection of balloon sizes on its 0.018-inch over-the-wire platform. The device is available in balloon diameters of 2 to 10 mm and lengths of 20 to 300 mm. Saber combines a durable dual-layer hydrophilic coating with a low-profile body and new molded tip design to enhance crossability. Constructed with Duralyn material, the catheter has rated burst pressures of up to 18 atm.
