Peripheral Intervention

Four additional Micropuncture® Access Sets are now available


There are now four Micropucture Access Sets with trays. All of these sets include a palladium-tipped, nitinol wire guide and an EchoTip® needle. The sets, in 4 Fr and 5 Fr and standard and stiffened cannulas, also feature Transitionless-Tip™ coaxial catheter pair technology.

Fewer complications
In a study by Shah et al, access-site bleeding complication rates dropped from 11.7% to 2.6% when Micropuncture was used.1

Smooth entry
The coaxial catheter pair’s Transitionless-Tip has been engineered to glide into the vessel with less force.2

High visibility
The sharp, 21 gage needle features EchoTip technology that enhances ultrasound visibility. The supportive nitinol wire has a palladium tip for excellent visibility under fluoroscopy.

The latest part numbers can be found on the Micropuncture Access Set web catalog page and are:
