Japan OKs Medtronic's semi-compliant balloon:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Medtronic has gained Japanese approval to market its semi-compliant, rapid exchange balloon dilatation catheter for use during coronary angioplasty. Available in several lengths ranging from 6-30mm and in diameters of 1.5-4mm, the Sprinter balloon incorporates features that allow doctors to address "the most difficult" lesions during angioplasty, claims the firm. It has a low-profile FasTrac tip design to reach and treat challenging lesions. It incorporates a highly supple material that aids navigation through tortuous and distal anatomy. It also has a low profile and responsive shaft that balances push with deliverability and makes it ideal for distal lesions. The balloon was CE-marked for sale in Europe in February.
