Terumo Launches New Pinnacle R/O II Sheaths


June 25, 2009—Terumo Interventional Systems (Somerset, NJ) announced the expansion of its Pinnacle R/O II radiopaque marker introducer sheaths, which are now available in 4- to 9-F sizes with 6-, 10-, and 25-cm lengths. The company stated that the 10- and 25-cm lengths are appropriate for interventional procedures such as balloon angioplasty or stent placement or with ipsilateral approaches. The 6-cm sheath can be used for superficial access sites. The 4- to 9-F sizes with 6- and 10-cm lengths are also available with mini guidewires (a 0.035-inch wire with 4-F sizes, a 0.038-inch wire for all others).

According to Terumo, the Pinnacle R/O II enables interventionists to know the exact sheath tip location during a procedure. Its long, gradual taper on the dilator and sheath leads to easier insertion with less force, which may result in reduced trauma and reduced complications. The Pinnacle R/O II maintains kink resistance, reducing the need for a second sheath, the company stated.
