Cordis to launch sheathless cardiac access system in India

March 25, 2020 0 By FM

Cordis will launch Railway Sheathless Access System for cardiac patients in India this year.

The system will help to overcome some of the current limitations of transradial access and enable physicians to treat more complex lesions via radial access and expand availability of this minimally invasive, patient-friendly transradial approach for more patients, the company said.

The device received the European CE Mark approval in March 2017 and US FDA clearance in April 2018.

Cordi’s Railway System is indicated for use in radial artery procedures requiring percutaneous introduction of intravascular devices.

It is designed to enable direct access to the radial artery in the wrist with a guiding catheter without the use of an introducer sheath. This reduces the size of the arterial puncture site by up to 2F compared to a conventional sheath system.
