Thinner. Stronger. IDeal™.

The Prelude IDeal™ Hydrophilic Sheath Introducers offer the advantages of an ultra-thin wall sheath combined with the support and strength required in a sheath to provide ease of catheter manipulation.

Features & Benefits

The proprietary IDeal technology provides a robust sheath with increased resistance to kinking and compression. The low profile design and excellent transitions help facilitate smooth insertion into vessel. The hemostasis valve allows for easy wire and catheter manipulations while maintaining hemostasis.

The Prelude IDeal is sized 4F-7F, in lengths of 7cm, 11cm, 16cm, and 23cm; and is available in multiple kit configurations as well as custom options to meet your specific procedural needs.

Increased Compression Resistance*
124% more resistant to side wall compression

Increased Kink Resistance*
23% more kink resistant that leading competitor

Decreased Insertion Force*
Requires 15% less force to insert than leading competitor

Better Torque*
Twice the torque than the leading competitor

Radial Kit Components
