The components of a Femoral Snap Sheath Introducer:
Sheath: The sheath is the main component of the introducer. It’s designed with a thin radiopaque wall for excellent catheter handling1. It’s also kink-resistant, flexible, and radiopaque, facilitating pressure readings, flush, and aspirations.
Dilator: The dilator is designed for smooth transition to the sheath, reducing vessel trauma and promoting ease of insertion. It’s also snap-fit, eliminating slipping during insertion and providing an easy-to-grasp surface with an audible snap.
Guidewire: The guidewire is super elastic, ensuring smooth insertion and removal1. Multiple guidewire options are available to meet your procedural needs.
Side Tube: The side tube is designed to facilitate flush and aspiration.
3-Way Stopcock: The three-way stopcock has an easy-to-grip handle that facilitates flush and aspiration.
Suture Eye: The suture eye is part of the rotating suture ring, which rotates around the device and has a large suture opening.
Needle: The needle is short bevel with a proprietary coating, ensuring smooth insertion. A straightforward and accurate single puncture with an extra thin wall metal needle can help lower the risk of spasm.
These components work together to make the Femoral Snap Sheath Introducer a reliable and efficient tool for various medical procedures.
