Beacon® Tip Sizing Catheter Available in US and Canada

Cook Medical’s Beacon Tip Sizing Catheter

The Beacon Tip Sizing Catheter is used in angiographic procedures, diagnostic procedures and vascular interventions to make sure medical devices are sized correctly. These catheters are uniquely designed to help physicians correctly size devices, such as grafts, stents and balloons, to identify the best size of product to use for an individual patient’s situation. Sizing Catheters also help measure lesions accurately under fluoroscopy. With Sizing Catheter, as with all products, Cook collaborated with physicians to understand their needs. An accurate sizing tool is instrumental in aortic and other interventional procedures. With the re-introduction of Beacon Tip Sizing Catheters, this need is now fulfilled again. 

Cook is offering the Beacon Tip Sizing Catheter in 14 RPNs so physicians have sizing catheters for a wide variety of procedures. The Beacon Tip Sizing Catheter is available in centimeter, Cava and White Sizing configurations, as well as in Pigtail, VCF and straight tip shapes. All tip configurations are radiopaque for high visibility under fluoroscopy.  

“This catheter complements and enhances our portfolio of vessel sizing products. Cook’s portfolio is uniquely positioned to support interventional procedures from initial access throughout the intervention,” said Remco Van der Meel, director of product management for Cook’s Interventional specialty. “This sizing tool is an instrumental device during aortic interventions, a space where Cook is dedicated to. By offering our premium, accurate, gold-banded Sizing Catheters again, we are continuing to expand our ‘Access and Target’ portfolio to support complex interventions.” 

Each Beacon Tip Sizing Catheter is packaged in a foil sachet. This durable packaging is designed to protect the catheter and help the device withstand environmental factors, such as mechanical damage and aerosolized chemicals in operating rooms.
