Philips Pioneer Plus IVUS guided true lumen re-entry catheter

Why to use it

The Pioneer Plus IVUS-guided re-entry catheter is designed to identify true lumen with speed for the most challenging CTOs. With the unique offering of IVUS and a dual-wire system in one device, the Pioneer Plus catheter provides clinicians with IVUS-guided clarity to true lumen re-entry for their patients.

The only IVUS-guided re-entry device

The Pioneer Plus catheter is the only re-entry device with IVUS and ChromaFlo.


Identify the true lumen with speed and precision


Individual experiences with Pioneer Plus have demonstrated procedure time for effective re-entry ranging from 6-10 minutes.*
