• Low profile (4/5 F)
• Can be used above and below the knee
• Diameter availability ranges from 2 to 6 mm with balloon lengths up to 120 mm
• Supplements B. Braun’s existing 0.014- and 0.035-inch DCB portfolio
The recently launched low-profile SeQuent Please OTW 018 drug-coated balloon (DCB) is the key for treating infrapopliteal and femoropopliteal lesions. It enables the operator to use small sheath sizes of 4/5 F combined with a 0.018-inch guidewire. SeQuent Please OTW 018 is a paclitaxel-resveratrol–coated balloon catheter.
SeQuent Please OTW was investigated in the CONSEQUENT randomized controlled trial.1 Patients (n = 153) with challenging femoropopliteal lesions (23.5% with TASC [TransAtlantic Inter-Society Consensus] C and D lesions; mean lesion length, 14.5 cm) were randomized 1:1 to DCB versus plain old balloon angioplasty. At 24 months, primary patency was significantly higher in the DCB group (72.3% vs 48.4%; P = .006) with no further target lesion revascularization after 14 months.
SeQuent Please OTW 018 is available in diameters ranging from 2 to 6 mm and balloon lengths up to 120 mm.

• New cyanoacrylate glue
• Delayed polymerization for better control1
• Reduced adhesive strength to the microcatheter for longer injection1
Balt is proud to announce that Magic Glue has received CE Mark approval. Magic Glue is a next-generation cyanoacrylate liquid embolic agent, indicated for use in the embolization of arteriovenous malformations. Magic Glue is a class III implantable medical device described as an arterial and venous embolization implant due to its hemostatic action, and it is applicable in the fields of neuroradiology and interventional radiology. The device is applied in solution with a contrast liquid.
This cyanoacrylate glue offers interesting features, including delayed polymerization of the monomers for better control and reduced adhesive strength to the microcatheter for longer injection.1 With these characteristics, Magic Glue will expand cyanoacrylate indication in the neurovascular and peripheral fields, noted company President Nicolas Plowiecki.
