Impress catheter is available in a variety of tip shape configurations and sizes. Its tapered and flexible tip enables atraumatic catheter introduction and facilitates vessel cannulation. The catheter’s inner lumen improves contrast medium administration. The addition of barium sulphate in the catheter tip translates into its excellent trackability under fluoro without added rigidity. The catheter’s double thin steel wire shaft construction and nylon coating ensure a balance between rigidity, pushability, shape memory and flexibility.
Performance and comfort of use
Impress is designed to reduce friction and facilitate passage even through complex, tortuous anatomy or through vessels with severe plaque. The catheter’s distal part ensures good maneuverability.
The soft tip without reinforcement ensures resistance to expansion at the point of connection between the shaft and the tip during contrast administration.
