Advance your approach to exceptional performance
Metacross is a percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) balloon dilatation catheter for peripheral indications.
Metacross RX is the perfect match for the Misago RX self-expanding peripheral stent, combining safety, simplicity and effectiveness.(1)
Better handling by design(2)
Essential improvements in efficiency and control with Rapid Exchange(2)
- Enables fast, convenient exchange of devices(2)
- Supports the use of short guidewires(3)
- Encourages procedural efficiency, reducing potentially fluoroscopy time(4) and radiation time(3)
- Optimizes control allowing a single operator to perform the procedure(3)
End-to-end(5) performance with less effort
Better pushability results demonstrated with innovative catheter design(5)
- Engineered for maximizing pushability with a well-designed shaft and stiff tapered core wire
- Effective transition of force from proximal to distal end for efficient lesion crossing
