Z-5™

Atrioseptostomy catheter

Catheter Characteristics
The NuMED Z-5™ Atrioseptostomy catheter is engineered for maximum steering and tracking. The dual lumen shaft design provides pushability, coupled with exceptional pull strength. This new innovation in Atrioseptostomy catheter design is of potential importance in patients who are subject to a small left atrium and in small neonates with congenital heart disease requiring Atrioseptostomy.

Radiopaque Catheter Body & Balloon Image Marker
The NuMED Z-5™ Atrioseptostomy catheter body is Radiopaque to facilitate reliable positioning of the catheter. A platinum image marker band is placed under the balloon for clear identification under fluoroscopy.

Micro-Thin Non-Compliant Balloon
The NuMED Z-5™ Atrioseptostomy balloon is micro-thin for low deflated profile that maintains tip flexibility. The Inflation of the balloon is controlled by volume. (see volumetric chart-Instructions for Use)

Reduced Balloon Size
The reduced inflated balloon size should make Atrioseptostomy easier to perform on neonates with a small left atrium.

Tip Angulation
The tip of the catheter is angled at 35to facilitate passage into the left atrium.

Inner Lumen
The NuMED Z-5™ Atrioseptostomy catheter has an inner lumen. The catheter end hole can accommodate a guidewire.
