Bloomington, Ind. – Cook Medical today announced the introduction of its 2.9 Fr size Cantata® microcatheter with a .027 inch inner diameter (ID) and the Alight™ microwire.
This .027 ID Cantata microcatheter complements the existing .021 and .025 inch ID microcatheters, completing Cook’s full line of embolization microcatheters. The new .027 ID microcatheter allows physicians to deliver a larger range of embolic agents to the target anatomy. Cantata microcatheters provide physicians with the ability to navigate when accessing small and tortuous vessels.
The Alight, a microwire that is a companion for most microcatheters, is available in a variety of lengths and configurations. The .016 inch Alight microwire is made entirely of nitinol.
“We are excited to continue expanding our embolization line,” said Andrew Conder, senior global product manager of embolization at Cook Medical, “Our goal is to support physicians doing embolization procedures by providing the products they need when they need them.”
