The hydrophilic coating causes decreased frictional resistance, making it easier for the catheter to navigate through narrow, tortuous vessels. It also helps in reducing contact damage to body cells, lessening the risk of spasm and thromboembolism.
105 CM CATHETER LENGTH
An extra 5 cm was added to the standard 100 cm catheter length to allow smooth, easy passage through narrow,tortuous vessels found in elderly patients. This length is also suitable for taller patients or for reaching visceral arteries from a left sided approach.
LARGE INNER LUMEN
The SoftNAV catheter’s thin walls create a larger lumen to provide an ideal contrast flow for a better angiographic image despite a smaller French size.
