Declot-Thrombectomy Case Study

Chameleon™ PTA balloon catheter

Discover cases using real-time feedback through integrated injection while maintaining wire access.

Addressing declot with real-time feedback over the wire

Dual-direction, repeatable PTA for dialysis access

Through injection of contrast directly to the targeted lesion, the Chameleon™ PTA balloon catheter offers real-time feedback through the integrated third port while maintaining wire access.

During a declot procedure, the device (optional sheathless) provides access in both directions and enables repeated angioplasty and imaging whenever needed.
