Merit Medical’s New MIV™ Radial Ventriculogram Pigtail Catheter is Designed for the Radial Approach

Merit Medical announces the release of its MIV Radial Ventriculogram Catheters. This pigtail catheter is designed to angle toward the left cusp from the radial approach, facilitating easier insertion into the ventricle.

  • Faster access
  • Reduced fluoroscopy time
  • Reduced procedure time
