Radius Medical, LLC. today announced the FDA clearance and product launch of its new PRODIGY™ Support Catheter. Engineered to provide back up support to the guidewire when encountering difficult to cross lesions, the PRODIGY Support catheter will be a critical component in the revolutionary techniques now being developed in treating chronic total occlusions.
The Prodigy Support catheter is uniquely designed to deliver exceptional support in even the most challenging cases. It provides an easy, safe solution to stabilize the catheter within the vessel for enhanced guidewire pushability. The device includes a novel elastomeric balloon that allows for anchoring of the catheter within the vessel. The balloon material allows for a single balloon to cover a full range of vessel diameters, from 2-6mm.
