The Serranator® Alto PTA Serration Balloon Catheter


The Serranator® Alto PTA Serration Balloon Catheter (Figure 1) is an over-the-wire balloon dilatation catheter designed to perform percutaneous transluminal angioplasty for peripheral vasculature as described in the indications for use statement. The Serranator® Alto has a nylon semicompliant balloon with four embedded external serrated metal strips. The serrated strips are designed to create linear, interrupted scoring (Figure 2) along the endoluminal surface during balloon angioplasty.

Figure 2. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images approximately 5X (A) and 10X (B) of porcine femoral artery surface 7 days after Serranator®. Linear, interrupted serrations demonstrate controlled media exposure, circumferential expansion (between each serration), and neointimal healing.

Indications For Use

The Serranator® Alto PTA Serration Balloon Catheter is intended for dilatation of lesions in the iliac, femoral, iliofemoral, and popliteal arteries and for the treatment of obstructive lesions of native or synthetic arteriovenous dialysis fistulae. Not for use in the coronary or neuro-vasculature. The Serranator® Alto received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration in February 2017.

The Serranator® Bass, currently in development, will be intended for below-the-knee arteries.
