The LINEAR IAB features the innovative Durathane membrane and a 7.5Fr. size. This reduced size enables clinicians to deliver counterpulsation therapy to a broader range of patients, including those with smaller peripheral vasculature.
Lower ischemia rates reported for smaller catheters*
The LINEAR 7.5 Catheter is easier to insert,* easier to negotiate* and easier on both doctor and patient.
All balloon and catheter materials meet FDA and ISO biocompatibility guidelines for devices and materials. LINEAR 7.5Fr. IAB catheters and insertion kits do not contain latex.
