The LINEAR 7.5Fr. Catheter

Easier to insert*

Abrasion resistance* in different membranes

Proprietary IAB Membrane provides better performance*
• Abrasion resistance improved 43%*
• Improved fatigue resistance*
• Immediate inflation at start-up*
• Reduced insertion force*
The smaller 7.5Fr. size is ideal for small adults, diabetics,
and patients with PVD*
• Reduced catheter cross section area by 12% vs. 8Fr.*
• Smaller catheter size allows increased distal limb flow
• Minimize the size of arterial puncture
• Ease of insertion in smaller or diseased vessel lumens
• LINEAR IAB catheter has 43% reduction in insertion

We weren’t satisfied to make it smaller
We had to make it better

Smaller profile without compromised performance*
• Faster gas shuttle performance allows better support of
rapid heart rates and arrhythmias
• LINEAR has 19% faster cycle time in 80º bend test method
compared to competitive IAB catheters*
Improved sheath
• Improved sheath to introducer transition
• Hemostasis valve
• Twist lock introducer hub
• Universal color coding for size
• Wire reinforced sheath
