BD Launches Halo One Thin-Walled Guiding Sheath

June 5, 2020—BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) announced the launch of the Halo One thin-walled guiding sheath, which is designed to perform as both a guiding sheath and an introducer sheath for use in peripheral artery and venous procedures requiring percutaneous introduction of intravascular devices.

According to the company, the device consists of a thin-walled (1-F wall thickness) sheath made from braided single-lumen tubing, fitted with a female luer hub at the proximal end and a formed atraumatic distal tip. The thin-walled design reduces the size of the arteriotomy compared with standard sheaths of equivalent French size to help minimize access-site complications. A stainless-steel braid construction fortifies the design for extra support.

The Halo One thin-walled guiding sheath is available in a broad size range (4, 5, and 6 F) with shaft lengths of 10 and 25 cm, as well as shaft lengths of 45, 70, and 90 cm for 4 and 5 F sizes. The device is suitable for distal peripheral intervention as well as for alternative approaches, such as tibiopedal or radial access sites.
