Why to use it

• 96% success rate opening arteriovenous dialysis fistulae1: Arteriovenous dialysis fistulae commonly require high pressure dilatations2 due to the fibrotic-like morphology of these hemodialysis shunts. With a Rated Burst Pressure (RBP) of up to 27 atm, the highly flexible and conformable Passeo-35 HP reliably dilates these resistant lesions.

• Controlled compliance at high pressure: Shape retention for precise dilatation.

• Minimized vessel straightening: Proprietary balloon technology designed for conformability and flexibility. Delivering a vessel-friendly solution with impressively high RBP of up to 27 atm, dilating resistant lesions in complex anatomy.

• Coaxial catheter shaft designed for flexibility, strength and rapid deflation: Coaxial catheter shaft design offering advanced flexibility at high strength while supporting rapid deflation. A faster approach to treat long lesions.
