Terumo Interventional Systems Launches a Complete Line of Coronary Diagnostic Catheters
Date:12/1/2008

SOMERSET, N.J., Dec. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The Tiger and Jacky tip shapes stand out in Terumo's newest family of products.

Terumo Interventional Systems announces the launch of Optitorque(TM), its new line of coronary diagnostic catheters, featuring the exclusive Tiger and Jacky tip shapes designed and cleared specifically for transradial procedures.

"The Optitorque catheters, specially designed for radial approach, will help to generalize the radial technique by reducing the learning curve," said Dr. Ramon Quesada, Medical Director of Interventional Cardiology at Miami Baptist Cardiac & Vascular Institute.

With a simple clockwise or counter clockwise rotation, the Tiger and Jacky tip shapes enable angiography of both the RCA and LCA with one catheter. This eliminates the catheter exchange step and can potentially shorten procedure and fluoroscopic time.

"These Optitorque catheters are valuable tools for the transradial approach. They can be used for left coronary artery, right coronary artery and LV. So, the need for the exchange of catheters is greatly reduced ... They are great tools and make radial cardiac catheterization easier," said Tak Kwan, MD, FACC Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine, Senior Associate Director of Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory and Interventional Cardiology Beth Israel Medical Center.

"The Tiger and Jacky tip shapes are paramount to the Optitorque product line. The Optitorque family offers optimum torque control and precise placement, which contribute to catheterization success," said Gary Clifton, Marketing Manager for Terumo Interventional System's coronary product line. "It is the coronary diagnostic catheter to use when performance matters."

With its double-braided stainless steel mesh middle layer for superior (1:1) torque control and its large lumen for high flow of contrast, the Optitorque's construction is the key to its performance.
