The ultra low-profile of Cook Medical’s latest balloon allows physicians to attempt interventions that they never thought were possible. The Advance Micro™ 14 Ultra Low-Profile PTA Balloon Catheter is designed specifically to treat vessels from the knee all the way to the digital arteries. Advance Micro 14 is an .014 inch, over- the-wire system that is ideal for below-the-knee procedures.
Amazingly, the balloon’s tip entry profile is the same as that of an .018 inch diameter wire guide. All balloon sizes are compatible with 3 Fr sheaths. These ultra-low profiles allow the Advance Micro 14 to pass through a 2.9 Fr ID Micropuncture® Pedal Access Set introducer to treat via a retrograde tibiopedal approach.
Advance Micro 14 is available in balloon diameters as small as 1.5 mm, as well as 50, 90, and 150 cm shaft lengths to accommodate a variety of access points. Balloon lengths of up to 12 cm allow the treatment of longer lesions with fewer inflations and deflations. The Pliaform™ balloon-surface texture* and hydrophilic coating reduce friction to help physicians cross lesions.
Advance Micro 14 is used for percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of lesions in peripheral arteries, including iliac, renal, popliteal, posterior tibial, anterior tibial, peroneal, pedal, femoral, iliofemoral, radial, brachial, ulnar and internal pudendal arteries, as well as of obstructive lesions of native or synthetic arteriovenous dialysis fistulas.
