Teleflex Receives FDA Clearance for Dual Access Catheter

March 15, 2017

The FDA has awarded marketing clearance to Teleflex’s Twin-Pass Torque dual access catheter.

The catheter is intended to access discrete regions of the coronary and/or peripheral vasculature, to facilitate placement and exchange of guidewires, and to deliver diagnostic and therapeutic agents.

The catheter contains both a rapid-exchange lumen and an over-the-wire lumen. The 0.014inch guidewire is deployed through the rapid-exchange lumen into the main branch; subsequent delivery of a second guidewire into a side branch or fluid injection to a desired distal vessel segment. — Cynthia Jessup
