Cagent Vascular earned a CE Mark for its Serranator PTA serration balloon catheter.
The product features four serrated metal strips that help improve arterial expansion.
“Angioplasty is simple and inexpensive but doesn’t work very well,” said Cagent’s co-founder and chief medical officer, Peter Schneider. The Serranator “capitalizes on the simplicity and familiarity of angioplasty while introducing a new and more effective method of vessel expansion.”
Cagent received FDA Clearance for its first product, Serranator Alto, early this year.
