Trackability, Pushability, Visibility

Crossing tight, difficult lesions is often challenging and time consuming. Having a support catheter that offers trackability, pushability and visibility gives you the confidence needed to cross occlusions, even in your most challenging case.

Product Features

Translucent Shaft for visualization of blood to verify placement in vessel lumen

3 Platinum Marker Bands to confirm catheter position and lesion sizing

  • First marker band 2 mm from tip
  • 0.014” and 0.018” second and third marker bands are 15 mm apart
  • 0.035” second and third marker bands are 50 mm apart

40 cm Distal Hydrophilic Coating provides smooth tracking through tortuous anatomy

Low Profile Tapered Tip facilitates crossing difficult lesions

Maximum Infusion Pressure 300psi

Guide Wire Compatibility 0.014”, 0.018”, 0.035”

Multiple Lengths 65 cm, 90 cm, 135 cm, 150 cm


SureCross Shaft Technology

Engineered to optimize pushability and flexibility which maximizes guide wire support, trackability and lesion crossing.


SureCross Tip Design

Short tip distance to marker band (2 mm) maximizes accuracy of tip location and enhances tip radiopacity

Internal platinum distal marker band provides a seamless transition zone

Marker band improves critical tip visualization

Robust tapered tip improves crossing and durability

Excellent transition from catheter tip to guide wire


Tip to Guide Wire Comparison

The low profile, seamless transition from catheter to guide wire provides exceptional crossing support.
