The Hunter® Extraction Catheter features the highest extraction capacity in the market while maintaining excellent deliverability. The combination of flexibility, pushability, and high kinking resistance make the Hunter a valuable tool for thrombus extraction.
The Crusade Catheter is one of the most widely used recrossing devices in Japan. In two separate lumen it facilitates guidewire maneuvering for bifurcation stenting and CTO treatment.
It helps saving valuable "time to reperfusion" in complex AMI settings.

The AMIcath® Perfusion Catheter allows the passage and recanalization of thrombotic lesions using the Dotter effect (increasing balloon profile) instead of balloon pre-dilatation. This approach reduces thrombus fragmentation and distal embolization.
After successful lesion passage the AMIcath's distal holes allow for injection of contrast dye for assessment or injection of lytic drugs (e.g. Abciximab, Adenosine, Nitroprussiate, Verapamil).
Data of a 100 patient registry*:
> occlusion crossed in 91%
> TIMI 2-3 flow obtained in 80% of patients
> reduced risk of embolization (4%, compared to
15% in balloon pre-dilatation series)
> AMIcath changed the strategy of primary PCI
in 74% of participating physicians
