Kathy NC, a Post Dilatation Angiographic Diagnostic Catheter, is used to open narrowed arteries. A balloon, which sits at the tip of a flexible catheter, is inflated at high pressure, inside the narrowed artery wall. This pushes the arterial plaque against the blood vessel and decisively improves blood flow to the heart muscle.
The Kathy SC pre-expansion catheter is a minimally invasive procedure to open blocked coronary arteries so blood can circulate freely to the heart muscle.
The Kathy DC angiographic diagnostic catheter is intended for use during angiographic procedures. It is used to inject contrast material and use fluoroscopy to identify blockages/lesions in the coronary vessels on both the left and right sides of the heart.
