Paclitaxel eluting balloon with coaxial design (OTW), intended for dilatation or opening of stenosis located at the iliac, femoral, ilio-femoral, popliteal, infrapopliteal and renal arteries as well as for the treatment of obstructive lesions of arteriovenous fistulas, whether original or artificial, with a reference diameter balloon from 5 to 7 mm and lengths from 20 to 150 mm. It is also indicated for stent postdilation in the peripheral vascular system. Specially designed for percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) technique. The catheter features a dual lumen tube from the proximal connection to the balloon. One lumen is for guide wire (max. diameter 0.035) insertion and catheter leading to the lesion; while the other one allows contrast liquid passage for balloon in-deflation and this it comprises the in-deflation channel. The balloon is coated with the drug Paclitaxel; which is included in a physiologically innocuous matrix. Drug dose is 3 micrograms / mm2 of balloon surface and its purpose is to avoid cellular proliferation in order to lower re-intervention rate.
