Insightra Medical, Inc. Gains FDA clearance for the Most Complete Range of 7Fr Intra Aortic Balloon (IAB) Catheters
... The shaft of the catheter is thin, but strong, and provides a large central lumen, comparable to most 8Fr catheters. This translates to excellent gas shuttling
plus an 0.028" central fluid lumen, which allows for reliable pressure monitoring and the use of a larger 0.025" guidewire.
