WAYNE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 2, 2016--
Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX), a leading global provider of medical
technologies for critical care, urology and surgery, will showcase its
Arrow® Interventional Access Portfolio at the 2nd Annual Congress of the
European Society for Vascular Medicine (ESVM) to be held in Rome, Italy
on May 8 – 10, 2016.
During the event, Teleflex will highlight the Arrow® GPSCath® Balloon
Dilatation Catheter featuring innovative VisioValve® Technology over a
0.014 guidewire - for infrapopliteal interventions.
The Arrow® GPSCath® Catheter is a specialty two-in-one device that is
indicated for percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) in the
peripheral vasculature, including iliac, femoral, popliteal,
infrapopliteal and renal arteries allowing the physician to conduct
angioplasty and inject fluid (targeted angiogram specifically at lesion
site) while maintaining catheter and guidewire position. Below-the-knee
interventions can be complex undertakings, requiring multiple devices,
numerous procedural steps and significant procedural time. The Arrow®
GPSCath® Catheter offers a solution by combining angioplasty and
angiography into one device.
Prof. Marianne Brodmann, University Hospital Graz, Austria, will present
the Arrow® GPSCath® Balloon Dilatation Catheter with a recorded
live-case "Popliteal and BTK trifurcation occlusion in dialyzed diabetic
Rutherford 5" on Monday May 9, at 10:09 a.m., during the Symposium:
Endovascular Techniques and Arterial Revascularisation held from
09:00-10:30 a.m. in the Dali Auditorium.
