MAQUET Cardiovascular Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance For New Mega® Intra-Aortic Balloon Catheter Sizes
Date:5/14/2012

MAHWAH, N.J., May 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MAQUET Cardiovascular LLC, a leading provider of cardiovascular technologies, today announced that it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its new MEGA 7.5Fr. 30cc and 40cc intra-aortic balloon (IAB) catheters. These new, larger volume catheters will allow clinicians to provide patients with greater hemodynamic support, regardless of their height. 

"The MEGA family of catheters represents a true advancement in IAB therapy and broadens our therapeutic offerings for clinicians and patients, as these new catheters deliver a significant increase in hemodynamic support regardless of the patient's height," said Christian Keller, President and CEO of MAQUET Cardiovascular. "As a global leader in hemodynamic support, MAQUET is committed to advancing IAB therapy, and we are confident that our larger volume balloons will remain the gold standard for clinicians when such support is needed."

The advanced design of the MEGA IAB family provides exceptional benefits for patients and clinicians. Larger volume balloons like MEGA displace more blood in the aorta during diastole, resulting in improved augmentation and unloading. Due to the unique balloon wrap, MEGA IABs have no step-down between the balloon membrane and the catheter shaft, which potentially decreases bleeding when using a sheathless approach. The new MEGA IABs also provide a patented, more durable Durathane balloon membrane and a co-lumen catheter design with a large 0.027 inch inner lumen for a reliable pressure transducer signal.

Additionally, all MEGA IABs come with two STATLOCK® IAB Stabilization Devices[1], which allow the catheter to be secured to the patient's leg without sutures. STATLOCK® provides safety and comfort for the patient and eliminates the risk of suture needle sticks for the clinician.
