Presgo® Micro Catheter received the NMPA registration certificate in August 2017 (Guo Xie Zhu Zhun 20173771381) and was subsequently commercialized in November 2017 in China.
Presgo® Micro Catheter is used to assist the delivery of diagnostic devices and materials and/or therapeutic devices and materials to the systemic vascular system, including the neurovascular and peripheral vascular systems. It is used mainly for therapeutic embolization and angiography.
Presgo® Micro Catheter consists of a hub, a stress release tube, a catheter, dual radiopaque markers and a hydrophilic coating: 1) the five-segment gradient design increases the controllability of the catheter 2) the braided mesh reinforcement design strengthens its folding resistance, and the polymer materials used in the distal end provides stronger support to the distal catheter. 3) in the distal end of the Presgo® Micro Catheter, the dual radiopaque markers of platinum iridium alloy not only help monitor the catheter during the procedure but also avoid impairing the flexibility of the catheter 4) the outside hydrophilic coating provides lubrication between the catheter and the blood vessels 5) the inner PTFE layer ensures a long-lasting unimpeded flow within the catheter
