DRAKON™

Track well. Reach farther 1,2,3.
With no compromise.

Optimizing pushability, flexibility, torqueability for improved trackability.

Design Overview

High performance peripheral microcatheter for challenging anatomies.

Smooth delivery 4

Inner PTFE lumen facilitates smooth passage of fluids, embolic agents and devices (such as guidewires)

Optimized pushability and torqueability 2

16 yarns tungsten braid provides support, increased pushability and best-in class torqueability

Easy navigation through tortuous vessels 1, 2, 3

Made possible by hydrophilic coating

Gradual flexibility 1

7 segments high performance polymers designed to enhance proximal support & pushability while providing optimal flexibility & trackability to the distal tip.

Enhanced & total visibility 4

Tungsten RO braid runs through the entire catheter length, allowing enhanced visbility under fluoroscopy.
Distal RO marker enhances tip visibility
