Feature & Benefits

Yellow marker

permits positive identification and differentiation of the Ostial Pro® Stent Positioning System from other wires.

Nitinol wire

0.018 inch wire allows greater pushability and strong pullback capabilities.

15 mm leg span

accommodates ostia.

Nitinol gold-plated legs

allow greater opacification to help identify the plane of the ostium.

Flexible distal wire

The 4 cm distal end is ground down to 0.014 inches and heat-treated to allow more flexibility to prevent straightening of the guiding catheter curve, while retaining push/pull characteristics.

Flexible cylinder

Longitudinal opening allows use with 6, 7, or 8 French guiding catheters.



Tapered cylinder

permits easy pullback into the guide.

Overall length of 127 cm

permits use with any guide that is ≤100 cm in length.

OSTIAL PRO® Stent Positioning System allows easier assessment of coronary or renal ostia, improving the accuracy of stent positioning in AO lesions:

  • Unique design provides three dimensional visual and tactile feedback
  • Excellent pushability and strong pullback capabilities
  • Compatible with 6, 7, and 8 French guiding catheters

OSTIAL PRO® Stent Positioning System helps avoid potential complications.

Once positioned against the ostium, the OSTIAL PRO® Stent Positioning System:

  • Helps prevent deep seating of the guide catheter
  • May decrease risk of dissection by minimizing guide catheter tip trauma
  • Facilitates precise stent positioning in the ostium to help reduce the risk of distal and proximal lesion stent deployment and the need for more costly reinterventions

The OSTIAL PRO® Stent Positioning System enables more accurate stent placement, which can help reduce:

  • The length of procedures
  • Fluoroscopy and radiation exposure
  • Use of contrast (important for preserving renal function)

The Challenge of Stenting Aorto-Ostial Lesions

  • Aorto-ostial (AO) stenting accounts for an estimated 5%-7% of coronary interventions and more than 90% of renal artery interventions.
  • AO lesions are more likely to be associated with suboptimal angiographic results due to lesion rigidity and elastic recoil, and have higher rates of target lesion revascularization.
  • Conventional angiographic landmarks used during stenting of AO lesions are often ambiguous and/or misleading, making accurate stent positioning extremely difficult.
  • In a retrospective study of 100 patients in whom stents were placed using angiographic landmarks, correct stent positioning was achieved in only 46% of cases.
  • This device was associated with decreased procedure time, radiation exposure and reduced use of contrast.
