Quick-Cross® Support Catheters

Support, Cross, Exchange, Confirm

Quick-Cross® Support Catheters were the first support catheters designed around the wire to receive FDA clearance. Since approval in 2004, the market leading Quick-Cross product line has helped thousands of physicians cross tortuous anatomy, allow for exchange of guidewires, and provide a conduit for delivery of saline and diagnostic contrast agents.


Translucent Shaft
  • Easy visualization of blood confirms luminal access
  • Targeted injection of contrast and delivery of saline solutions

Low Profile Tapered Tip
  • Seamless catheter-to-guidewire transition
  • Facilitates crossing of CTOs and challenging lesions
  • Smooth tracking through tortuous anatomy and diffuse disease

Triple Markers
  • Assess lesion length
  • Confirm catheter positioning

CVX-300® Excimer Laser System

Spectranetics manufactures and markets the only excimer laser system and disposable catheters for the treatment of peripheral and coronary arterial disease and lead extraction and management.


The Science of Excimer Laser Ablation

Photoablation is the use of light to break down, vaporize and remove matter. Spectranetics CVX-300® Excimer Laser facilitates photoablation via a variety of Spectranetics catheters to remove binding scar tissue surrounding cardiac pacemaker ICD leads.


The mechanisms of actions are:

Photochemical: Breaking molecular bonds
  • UV light pulse hits tissue for 135-billionths of a second (135ns); the duration of the laser pulse
  • 50 microns penetration
  • Billions of molecular bonds fractures per pulse
  • After 135-billionths of a second, laser energy is not emitted

Photothermal: Producing thermal energy
  • Absorption vibrates the molecular bonds of the plaque
  • Vibration of bonds heats intracellular water
  • Water vaporizes, molecules break apart, and cells rupture
  • Expanding vapor bubble forms in 100-millionths of a second (100 µs)
  • 1,000 times the duration of the actual laser energy emission

Photomechanical: Creating kinetic energy
  • Expansion and collapse of vapor bubble breaks down tissue and clears byproducts away from tip
  • Byproducts of ablation are water, gas, and small particles
  • Entire process time per pulse is 400-millionths of a second (400 µs)
  • 4,000 times the duration of the actual laser energy emission

Turbo Elite® Laser Atherectomy Catheter

Turbo Elite® laser catheters utilize ultraviolet light to vaporize arterial blockages into particles, most of which are smaller than a red blood cell.


Versatility
  • Total occlusions via the proven and safe Step-by-Step method
  • Hard to reach vessels below the knee via Turbo Elite “treat from the tip” technology
  • Treats multiple morphology lesions which may be comprised of atheroma, fibrosis, calcium and thrombus

Proven
  • The most published atherectomy method with over 70 peer reviewed journals supporting the efficacy and safety of laser atherectomy technology treating at the molecular level in both above and below the knee lesions
  • 93% limb salvage rate demonstrated in patients with critical limb ischemia (LACI)1
  • Freedom of TLR of 77% for all patients, 85% in the stented group (CELLO)2
  • Demonstrated safety in two of the largest studies of laser atherectomy technology (CELLO and LACI)1,2

Cost Effective
  • Compared to our competitors, Turbo Elite offers the most cost effective atherectomy solution on a per case basis3
  • Turbo Elite is guaranteed. Spectranetics will provide a free replacement Turbo Elite catheter when a physician uses the catheter and it falls short of the physician’s expectations

Turbo-Tandem® Laser Guide Catheter

Turbo-Tandem® integrates proven Spectranetics technologies to ablate plaque above the knee, restoring blood flow to the lower extremities. Combining a laser guide catheter with an excimer laser atherectomy catheter, Turbo-Tandem offers physicians the ability to precisely target the lesion. The angled ramp allows for circumferential guidance and positioning of the laser catheter within the vessel, and the spring-loaded handle with variable settings greatly simplifies use of the device for repeated passes through the vessel.


Versatility
  • Whether a long diffuse lesion or a small focal lesion, Turbo-Tandem can treat with predictable, proven results
  • Turbo-Tandem can be combined with a Turbo Elite® catheter to cross a chronic total occlusion before debulking the artery
  • Six-point ramp positioning options for better control

Proven
  • The most published atherectomy method with over 70 peer reviewed journals supporting the efficacy and safety of laser atherectomy technology treating at the molecular level in both above and below the knee lesions
  • Freedom from TLR of 77% for all patients, 85% in the stented group (CELLO)1
  • No major adverse events in the pivotal study (CELLO) of laser atherectomy technology for the approval of the Turbo-Tandem system at six months1,3

Cost Effective
  • With only one pass needed per quadrant, and no need to empty a nosecone or cool down a spinning burr, Turbo-Tandem can save time during your case
  • No special wires or exact mix of lubricant needed to use Turbo-Tandem
  • • Turbo-Tandem is guaranteed. Spectranetics will provide a free replacement Turbo-Tandem catheter system if a physician uses the catheter and it falls short of the physician’s expectations

QuickCat™ Extraction Catheter

The QuickCat Extraction Catheter is an aspiration catheter combining the best features of other aspiration catheters into one device. QuickCat is your first choice for fresh, soft thrombus removal.


Designed to Traverse Tortuous Anatomy…Quickly
  • Excellent Pushability: Deliverability is critical in acute cases, which is why the QuickCat Extraction Catheter is designed with a flexible PEBAX® distal end and an increasingly stiffer proximal end to allow for excellent pushability.
  • Easy Advancement: The distal end of the catheter contains a hydrophilic coating and a 10cm wire lumen for minimum drag and easy advancement through tortuous vessels. Testing shows that the QuickCat requires less force to advance than other aspiration catheters1.

Exceptional Extraction Performance
  • Low Incidence of Clogging: Consistent extraction lumen through the length of the catheter minimizes bottle-necking2.
  • Low Profile Catheter: The QuickCat has a low crossing profile (4.5F) compared to all aspiration catheters and is compatible with the smallest 6F guide catheters (0.068″).
