Power through a small diameter
An angiographic or diagnostic catheter is intended for use in angiographic procedures. It delivers radiopaque media and therapeutic agents to selected sites in the vascular system. It is also used to lead a guidewire or a catheter to the target site.
The Outlook 4 Fr (1.40 mm) has a large lumen to allow contrast media to be injected at high flow rates and is designed to exhibit good torque control.1
The catheter inserter on the pigtail catheter can be used to straighten the catheter tip for easier insertion into the sheath. After catheter insertion, it can be peeled off the catheter. Fixed strain relief prevents the catheter from kinking at its proximal end.1
-The thin wall structure permits flow rates up to 23 ml/sec (saline) and a maximum pressure limit of 1,200 psi (8.274 kPa)1
-Braiding with variable pitch offers partial proximal rigidity and increased flexibility at the distal end2
-The Tiger and BLK curves enable angiography of right and left coronary arteries using either a radial or brachial approach. This single catheter concept decreases procedure and fluoroscopy times, providing both procedural and cost-efficiency3
