  • Descripción del producto
    Medtronic Arctic Front Catheter, Sterile EO, Medtronic CryoCath LP, Kirkland, Quebec, H9H 5 H3, Canada, Model 2AF282 and 2AF231 ( not distributed in US) || Product Usage: The Medtronic CryoCath System consists of a Cryoablation console, cardiac Cryoablation catheters, connection components and accessories. The Arctic Front Cardiac Cryoablation Catheter is an over the wire Balloon catheter. The inside of the Balloon at the distal end of the Cryoablation Catheter reaches temperatures of -50¿C or colder when refrigerant is injected from the console to the inside of the balloon. Arctic Front Cardiac Cryoablation catheters are introduced into the vasculature by traditional minimally invasive techniques. The CryoConsole houses the electrical and mechanical components as well as proprietary software for controlling and recording a cryotherapy procedure with Arctic Front and/or the Freezor family of catheters. It stores and controls the delivery of the liquid refrigerant through the coaxial umbilical to the catheter, recovers the refrigerant vapor from the catheter under constant vacuum, and disposes of the refrigerant through the hospital scavenging system. Multiple features are built into the catheter and the CryoConsole system to ensure safety.
